Just as the world’s finest vehicles are sleek, sexy blends of form and function, the women of the 2009 CrossFit Games are incredible physical specimens.

While the traditional “fitness girl” conjures up images of sequined bikinis and spray-on tans coating undernourished and barely functional bodies, CrossFit girls represent a special breed of athlete. These are beautiful, elegant women who are capable of unbelievable feats of athleticism, women whose beauty is enhanced by their strength, determination and resolve.

Media teams at the CrossFit Games took over 100,000 photos, and the CrossFit Journal presents the very best shots here in a tribute to the grace and beauty displayed by top female athletes in one of the world’s most rigorous proving grounds.

This is the high resolution version for subscribers only.

In Part 2 of this series, we’ll present the rugged, dynamic men of the 2009 CrossFit Games.

These are wonderful photographs and this is a fantastic document -- it's inspirational to women and men alike, a great way to remember and relive the Games, and absolute proof that Strength is Beauty.

How about a series of shots that can be used as desktop wallpaper, or even a screensaver? Maybe a calender?

Beautiful job with the layout, and showcasing what we've all come to see as a much deeper definition of beauty. CrossFit women aren't just physically attractive; there's a beauty of character that shines through the faces of people that choose to go through what we choose to go through day in and day out... OPT talked about it in "Every Second Counts." It makes women beautiful, and as I'm sure we'll see when the men's version comes out, it makes men handsome in ways that surpass the surface appearance.

Love the Renoir quote at the end, too.
