As Ben's agent....the deal for the 2010 Games will have to come through me. He is, however, available for the Utah/Nevada Sectionals and the Northwest Qualifier if HQ is interested. He is somewhat of a Diva so he requires a lot to host these types of things.
Heber...you are amazing! I love your videos!
Great job to all of you who competed this weekend. I was sad that I had to miss it.

Miranda, as my agent I really need you to get Molcha Salsa to come out with a special paleo burrito for me, or just free burritos that would be great. Get me paid!!!! Ha Ha only joking :)

This video is as good or better than NBC can put together. I suggest they send the team that did this video to the Olympics. Nice job.

Nice work Tommy! First you're runner-up at the Games, next your a Level 2 Trainer, now you're putting on kick-ass events. What's next for the athlete/coach/event promoter?

Mary was clearly the most fit competitor at this event. The video was fantastic. Great humor to go along with some impressive athletic ability. Ben is in fact an animal.

I dig the video...love seeing the production quality bump up and get some new original flavors. Left and right we have artists painting some great pictures of La Vida CF.

That video gives me chills every time I watch it-good job Heber and Ben! Congratulations to E-M-B/Ben C. And big props to Mary for sweeping it and making it look easy! It was an honor to join the fittest athletes in Utah for some ass-kicking WODs! Thanks to Tommy and Tyson and all the judges for putting on such a great event!

So, I am now in the camp that a 400+ FGB is the most impressive CF feat. For any that have one or that have seen one, is the ball crossing or touching the 10 foot line every shot? If people are getting 400 with the ball going over the line, I would actually pay admission to watch it. Someone really needs to make a video of that because I would watch it every day.
