Our team after the competition.
Some have suggested age and weight classes for the Games, or using some form of power calculator to “even out” differences in body types. This is a misunderstanding of real-world fitness. Different size trees don’t grow or fall according to the age or size of the people affected. Snow doesn’t accumulate variously on driveways of different people. In war, soldiers are not divided into weight classes. Walls and hills are not lowered for shorter people, nor are rocks made lighter for taller people. Life demands that you be competent moving both your own body and external objects. To win the CrossFit Games, you must be able to move your own body and specific external objects to the established standards better than everyone else no matter their size, height, or age.
