The Crossfit Games have come around again which means Dave Castro is rubbing his sadistic hands together, finding new ways to torture athletes.
The strongest and fittest in the world gather together in unified pain and torture in America. This year, Castro decided to create the longest torture session in history that included cycling 10 laps of a 1,200 metre circuit, muscle ups, squats, shoulder press and a marathon row of 42,195 metres... and athletes had four hours to complete it in... Four...hours!
These athletes have to be certifiably insane to actually want to compete in the Crossfit Games. They say it's a cult and it's hard to prove otherwise but its pretty hard to avoid and it's spreading fast.
Although there are many jokes about the protein filled, overly enthusiastic Crossfitters, there is also a bit of admiration for the dedication, willpower and strength it takes to be the best. Between all of the weird weightlifting faces, complaining and scars, we have to give it to Crossfitters, they are able to laugh at themselves!
If you can't beat the cult... umm I mean sport, join it!
