This video is one of the original ones that inspired me to start Crossfit. The part where Nicole starts crying and then finishes the WOD is awesome. The 3 athletes pictured are Nicole Carroll, current head of training for Crossfit HQ, Annie Sakamoto, who qualified for the Games last year as a Mom of 3 kids and well over age 35, and Eva T, an Olympic skier who has medaled at Worlds. Things have changed a lot since this was filmed…no more butt balls for Rx’ed workouts, 95lbs is no longer heavy, and the range of motion standard for Muscle-ups is much more strict. It’s interesting to see where things have evolved and what our “Crossfit Roots” are.
