Team competition is starting tonight at 8pm CET/ 7pm BST with a 914-meter (1000-yard) “rescue sled” swim in the ocean.
Although all three teams are coming from the Nordic, cold-water environment they are more than ready to take on a hot and sunny Californian adventure.
Team CrossFit Sport
Box: CrossFit Sport
Compared to other two teams, CrossFit Sport is the most experienced one. They competed at the Games twice before, placing 38th in 2011 and 39th in 2012. This year the team is stronger and consequently, the goals are bigger. Stay tuned to BOXROX as we have an interview with the whole team coming up on Friday.
