Catch Team U.S.A. in its second training workout with Games Director Dave Castro at Valley CrossFit in Van Nuys, Calif.

The second prep WOD is done as a three-woman team. For time, the trio must complete a total of 16 muscle-ups, 50 thrusters at 85 lb., 300 double-unders, 50 thrusters at 85 lb. and 16 muscle-ups.

Team U.S.A.’s Kristan Clever, Julie Foucher and Becca Voigt square off against a CrossFit Invictus squad that includes Camille Leblanc-Bazinet Lipson and Jenny Labaw. Team U.S.A. finishes first with a time of 7:45, while the Invictus crew finishes shortly afterward at 8 minutes flat.

Team U.S.A.—also including Matt Chan, Rich Froning and Jason Khalipa—will compete against Team Europe on Oct. 13 in London. The competition will involve four workouts.

“What we do in London is going to be really traditional,” Castro tells Team U.S.A. “What I mean by that is ’cause it’s gonna be on … the equivalent of ESPN for Europe, we’re not gonna do a lot of shit that’s not traditional workouts.”

He adds with a laugh: “No backflips.”

Team Europe includes Tuomas Vainio, Mikko Aronpaa, Samantha Briggs, Katrin Davidsdottir, Numi Snaer Katrinarson and Annie Thorisdottir.
