Dave Castro briefs the crowd on the first Affiliate event of the weekend.

2010 CrossFit Games Finals

Affiliate Cup Event Announcements

Updated! Final-day details!

The Affiliate Cup teams will kick off the 2010 CrossFit Games action on Friday morning.

Remember, the 2010 CrossFit Games athletes don't know the specific details of the events or how many events there will be. They know they will be asked to perform a wide variety of tasks over diverse periods of time. They know those tasks will be composed of functional movements. They know they will have to outperform their peers if they want to win. But all the specifics are a mystery.

Individuals and teams are in the same boat. They know when their next event is. They'll have a little time to prepare mentally and warm up for the event. They'll need to perform well at every event because they don't know what comes next.

It's just like the real world.

This post will be updated as details are announced.

After Event 3 it was announced that the next Affiliate Cup event will take place on Sunday. Only the top 16 teams will advance to the final day of the 2010 CrossFit Games.

So how does this affiliate stuff work? Two rounds for time and does each person have to do this or do you all just go as much as you can and then hand it off to the next person?

Live coverage is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm not a computer person, but is it be possible to put a TIMER on the screen? Though the commentators are great, it gets suspenseful sometimes and the time isn't always apparent. Overall nice job Crossfit media people, looking forward to the rest of the weekend!

The team must complete 70 thrusters each round, divided up between the team members however they want. In theory, for the most equitable distribution two team members would complete 17 reps and the other two members would complete 18 reps. This is a two round WOD so the total number of thrusters completed at the end of the workout is 140.

Just heard you guys are working on putting a timer on the screen. That's fantastic!!

I'm having trouble with the viewer, downloaded the latest flash version and not sure why it won't load.

9. Cole wrote...

Rosalind, make sure you hit play on the streaming site. I must have waited 10 minutes for it to load thinking it was going to be REALLY slow, until I realized you had to hit play first and it was just fine.

Loving the live feed guys!

10. Paul wrote...

I'm so pumped just watching all the great teams perform today! I'm a big fan of CrossFit Fort Vancouver, our across the river neighbor and friends to the north in Washington.

Announcers and camera people - could you please do some interviews and background with CrossFit Fort Vancouver? They've come in 1st place 3 times now and still no face time??? I know they are not a "famous" crossfit gym, or none of their ladies just had a baby, but come on...

27. O.G. CFV wrote...

Awesome feed and commercial free! Got this streaming on my HD tv and it's like I'm watching live T.V. Please do not go commericial with this next year. I loving watching my Crossfit brothers and sisters without annoying beer and fast food commercials or having to pay an arm and leg for pay per view.

On another note....GO CROSSFIT FT VANCOUVER!

Congrats to Crossfit Fort Vancouver.

The owner (Adam?) is a good guy who lets Naval Special Warfare recruits get beat down on weekends in preparation for their future careers and arduous Navy schools.

Good performance, great people.

Awesome work Fort Vancouver. Does this mean I'm going to be needing to develop some kind of scaling wall for the box now too??? Way to show the world what our family in SW WA can do!
