When IE6 happened I remember a lot of people start arguing in the chat about the time cap and some were saying the cap was fine and the people complaining know nothing about CrossFit and it was meant that way so just a few athletes would finish it. I'd love to see their faces now, knowing that they actually changed it after realizing IT WAS TOO SHORT, indeed.

Also I hope someone makes a full documentary of the 2021 crossfit games like past crossfit games documentaries, I love watching all of them. :)

I like watching some of the events but i always thought everyone standing with arms crossed behind the back, one knee thing, and facing movements was so corny. And this comes from a former Naval Academy student who had this burned into my brain. So much that when I see people salute in movies I sometimes perform one myself 🤣😂🤣

where is the footage of Pat velner, and Brent fikowski, who got 2nd and 3rd, and Laura Horvath who got 2nd. I definitely think there performances warranted them getting more filming time during this Miles to Madison documentary playlist you guys have made. Hopefully there is more footage of them in the upcoming episodes of this documentary. Other than that, great job Crossfit team on these Miles to Madison documentary episodes. Also great job on last years crossfit games, it was great and I'm glad you only cut to 20 at the end instead of only 10 athletes. 20 is so much better! Keep up the great work. :)

Most interesting BTS thing was Brooke Wells using compression bands on both her shoulders on Friday night

The rainbow slam with a 90degree leg squat with a heavy ball is one of the most functional exercises ever. Its what people use to do to break up the ground for planting crops.

Was that guy kidding when he said they could only wear the underwear they were issued? And they either wouldn’t be able to participate or have to go commando if they showed up in Nike underwear?

I get that Brandon was exposed to someone who tested positive, but where is the common sense?

Are all the other athletes isolated after a day of competition? If not the protocol was nothing but a waste. Not to mention all the interaction with the fans.

Respect for Brandon. Completely uncalled for. Competing for Fittest on earth and and young but covid is a problem? Do better, CrossFit.

why single out this young lady seems silly let her compete like everyone else, everyone is at risk.

Scott throwing a tantrum that Dave cares about his well being: I wouldn't put myself in a not safe situation.
