Chatting with Graham Holmberg
The Champ speaks pre-Games.
Graham Holmberg is the Fittest Man on Earth. Last year in Aromas, after just a few months of practicing CrossFit, he found himself in 19th overall when the weekend came to a close. He is now the co-owner of a CrossFit Affiliate and does all of his own programming. This year he was 3rd in the Central East Regional. He entered the 2010 Finals with a humble yet optimistic attitude. Graham's performance was shockingly balanced in the 2010 CrossFit Games; 2 first place finishes (“Hell-In” and the Clean/Ring HSPU) 2 third place finishes (Max overhead and the Deadlift/Pistol/Double-under) and the second best score in event 6b (Toe to Bar/Ground to Overhead).
The following interviews track the Champion's thoughts from Regionals to the opening day of the 2010 Games.
The first is an interview at this year's Central East Regional. Graham talks about his past mistakes in training and how he sought redemption this year.
The second video is Graham arriving on the scene at the Home Depot Center. He talks about his training and preparation, what he hopes to see and how he thinks he will perform in the given format.
Pat Sherwood’s parting advice? "Kick it in the ass."
Indeed he did.
