The athletes of the CrossFit Games have no peer in any sport.
Where others seek to master a single discipline, CrossFit athletes train to master life. These modern gladiators have prepared their bodies and minds to overcome any imaginable physical task, and they face the unknown with confidence earned through relentless elimination of weaknesses.
They are the ones who didn't break, those who refused to give in to pain and self-doubt. These few pushed through the burning, brushed aside the fatigue and overcame every challenge with sweat and raw determination.
They are the thoroughbreds, the proven, the elite who stand shoulder to shoulder in the world's ultimate test of fitness.
And from their ranks, only one can be named the Fittest on Earth®.
