Below is a video summarizing the spectrum of emotions had by the athletes at this year’s 2015 CrossFit Games Regional competitions. Regionals is a three day competition consisting of 6-7 brutal workouts. The sheer number of emotional ups and downs had by the athletes are matched only by the number of leaderboard changes throughout the weekend. Years of hard work goes into a Regional competition. Advancing to the CrossFit Games is a dream come true. Not making it is heartbreaking.
You don’t have to compete in a Regional competition to understand the emotions in the video. This is CrossFit. This is why we love it so much.
