The Fittest on Earth

July 22, 2013

The Reebok CrossFit Games

 

The quest to find this years Fittest Man and Fittest women will be settled this weekend. The Reebok CrossFit Games are taking place this weekend in Carson City, CA. Will Rich Froning Jr. win for a 3rd year in a row? Does CrossFit Fort Vancouver have what it takes to bring back the title of 2013 Affiliate Champions? (we think they do). 47 men, 44 women, 43 teams and 20 Masters in each division will be competing for their respective titles and you can WATCH IT ALL LIVE! ESPN will be covering all the events on ESPN3 and pick up coverage on ESPN2 on Friday.

It begins with the Masters Competition Tuesday-Thursday.

Individuals and Team competition start on Friday and will continue thru the weekend.
