Greg Glassman on Universal Participation
Dark Horses Will Always Have a Shot at the Title
The prize for the individual male and female winners of the 2011 CrossFit Games is set at $250,000 each, but CrossFit founder and CEO Greg Glassman expects that the winners of the CrossFit Games will soon win a million dollars. With the rapid growth of the sport, some have wondered if unknown athletes will still have a chance at winning.
Coach Glassman fundamentally disagrees with this idea. No matter how large the Games become, or how successful it's top athletes are, a teenager training in his garage will be able to dethrone the big name athletes like Mikko Salo and Rob Orlando. There will always be dark horses, and with CrossFit's commitment to universal participation, they will always have the opportunity to compete and show what they've got.
