Mikko Salo, 2009 Games champ and one of my favorite CrossFitters returns to the Games this year. This guy embodies CrossFit and some of the best aspects of the community. I know of no other Regional athlete that while competing in their Regional also stuck around each day to help the equipment crew prep the rigs and layout for the next day’s workouts.
I like the quote at the end of the video that shows his perspective on CrossFit, the Games and where it fits into his everyday life. In his broken English he says:
“Real life is somewhere else. This is just grown people playing. Playing around. You shouldn’t take too serious about this. It’s a great way of life and a great sport but still there are real stuff also in the world.”
“I promise if I make the Games then I will learn to butterfly (pull-up).” ~ Mikko Salo on finally addressing a big weakness.
Class Schedule Update:
During the CrossFit Games (25-29 July) we will have a modified class schedule as the we travel down for our annual Games-cation. Coach Moe will be running several classes a day but not all classes will be available during those days. Stay tuned as we announce the schedule soon.
