Throwback Thursday!! In spirit of the games I'm gonna throw it back to one of the first CrossFit "commercials" that was made for the games in 2010. Notice that it's sponsored by adidas! This was even before Reebok began to sponsor the games.
This video features Chris Spealler and Heather Bergeron. Spealler is still competing in the games. This year is going to be his last year before his retirement, but don't count him out of being one of the top competitors, especially since a lot of the WODs this year feature some of his greatest strengths. Heather Bergeron is one of my original favorites, and while she is busy raising 3 kids and co-owning CrossFit New England, one of the most successful and competitive affiliates out there, she still competes and performs phenomenally. Both of these athletes are the epitome of hard work and inspiration.
5 rounds-2 mins rest between rounds
7 hang power clean
4 front squat
(with a surprise twist!)
The first ever CrossFit games, oh how times have changed!
