The jump from Aromas to the Home Depot Center was monumental. The new venue offered enormous benefits for the spectators and athletes. The viewing - both onsite and online - more closely resembled ESPN than backyard barbeque.
The athletes in the CrossFit Games come from myriad different backgrounds. Some have experience with Division 1 college sports and televised events. Others have seen little more exposure than affiliate gatherings and backyard throwdowns, if that.
They all had different reactions regarding the move to the HDC, the live Webcast and the extended CrossFit Games season. We caught some of the athletes shortly after they arrived to see where their heads were at.
