2011 CrossFit Games – Behind the Scenes, Part 1, 2, 3

Join Sevan Matossian as he captures athletes, judges, spectators and staff at the 2011 Reebok CrossFit Games, providing a look at what goes on before, during and after the events. In Part 1, Matossian chronicles the first event of the weekend: the beach workout.

Early Friday morning, HQ Director of Training Dave Castro arrives at the Santa Monica Pier for the first workout of this year’s Games. The athletes assemble and provide their impressions of the event ahead of them.

“The challenge is gonna be, ‘Are you gonna panic while you’re out there or are you just gonna do what you’re supposed to do?’ You trained all year for this thing, man, the last thing you want to do is have your head get in a weird space,” flowmaster and judge Chuck Carswell says.

Before the event begins, Joshua Bridges questions his chances of winning.

“This is out of my comfort zone, so we’ll see how it goes,” he says. “I hate running and swimming, so it should be pretty fun.”

After finishing the challenge in third place with a big smile on her face, original Nasty Girl Annie Sakamoto says, “To me, this is the epic way to kick the whole thing off: at the beach, in the saltwater. I couldn’t ask for more.”
