The 2011 Reebok CrossFit Games will be held at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California for the second consecutive year. The ultimate test begins on Friday, July 29th and doesn’t stop until Sunday, July 31st.
At the center of the arena, the Games competitors will have to prove that they are not only fit but capable of handling the unknown. No one knows what the events will be. Every year the events are different. The best movements to test for fitness are a combination of gymnastics, powerlifting, Olympic lifting, jumping rope, climbing ropes, lengthy runs, and a vast amount of pure grunt work such as getting sandbags over a wall. But athletes never know what is required. In 2008, there was the hill. In 2009, there was the spike drive. In 2010, athletes had to do ring handstand push-ups and clear the 12-foot wall.
Only one thing is certain, each athlete will be thoroughly tested on their journey to be named the fittest man and fittest woman on Earth.
Fans from around the world will be able to keep up through our constant coverage and live streaming of the events.
