Who's been following the CrossFit Games since the inaugural year in 2007? If that's you, you're in for a treat. 

Saturday night's Individual event in the Tennis Stadium is a repeat of the first-ever CrossFit Games event in 2007, the Hopper.

In this event, called "2007," athletes start by rowing 1,000 meters, then follow with five rounds of 25 pull-ups and 7 push jerks (135/85). This is the first repeat Games event in seven years of Games programming. 

In 2007, Brett Marshall and Jolie Gentry won the event in 13:07 and 16:22, respectively. A lot has changed. In 2007, 135 and 85 lb. were considered heavy push jerks. Things are different in 2013. Not only are these very standard competition weights, the 15 minute time cap is faster than the best women's time in 2007.

Don't forget, you can watch live footage on ESPN3.com or Games.CrossFit.com if you're outside of the U.S. Stay tuned to the Games site for all information.
