Join Sevan Matossian as he captures the athletes, judges, spectators and staff, providing a look at what goes on before, during and after the events of the 2011 Reebok CrossFit Games.

In Part 7, Day 3 brings the final events of the competition. As Event 7: Dog Sled gets underway, HQ Media’s Tony Budding comments on the programming: “It’s supposed to be hard.”

Despite how painful the workout looked, second-place finisher Julie Foucher says she enjoyed it and loves competing “because it’s so much fun.” To her, fun is “pushing your limits, like knowing that you’re pushing yourself to be better and knowing that you’re constantly like striving to improve.”

“Never … be afraid to put yourself out there,” veteran CrossFitter Annie Sakamoto says. “I’m glad that I grabbed the bull by the horns and went for it this year because I’m having an amazing time.”

The individual men come next, with Josh Bridges taking first place in the workout.

Afterward, the athletes reflect on their performances and standings.

“You don’t become a champion overnight. You gotta do work and you learn about yourself. And everyone’s got a different journey, so this is mine,” Austin Malleolo says. He finishes 17th in the workout.

Doesn't it seem just lust like the movie "Gladiator"; when they’re under the stadium waiting to go into the arena? You hear the crowd yell and the lions roaring. They walk through the large hallway into the arena, you can see it on they're faces, they’re wondering about the unknown!

Nice to finally here something from Malleolo. Been wondering what his thoughts were on his performance and how he was dealing with it.

Gotta say it. Travis is a DB. "crazy crazy strong." Take that crap somewhere else. I saw him this weekend and he's fatter now than he was even in that video. In the words of his pal Greg Glassman, "You weaknesses begin at the limits of your experience." ... Trav, experiment with zone/paleo and some met cons... and get over yourself..
