500-meter swim

Athletes will start on the beach, swim out around 2 buoys, then finish back on the beach. All 80 athletes, 40 men and 40 women, will compete in one heat.

#Repost @crossfitphotojournal ・・・ Thursday, 7:00 AM. @thedavecastro briefs the individual athletes on the morning’s ocean event. The athletes will be breaking through the Pacific Ocean surf on Redondo Beach, and will then swim 500 meters. To prevent congestion in the shore, the plan is to start female athletes 30 seconds after the men. As Dave finishes the safety portion of his brief, he notes that “sharks have been really active in this area.” He gets a few nervous giggles from the group of female athletes in front of me. “Last year we saw an 8-foot shark near the event area, so if that happens again this year we will probably delay the event.” Afterward I ask Games rookie @jamiejoyce2 how she feels about the event. She actually watched last year’s swim event from the Hermosa Beach Pier. “It’s nuts,” she says. “I remember watching the competition and think how cool it would be to be doing that.” I ask if she’s worried about the Sharks. She laughs. “Dave is just trying to be funny.” #CrossFitGames #CrossFit #reebok #sonya6000 #crossfitphotojournal

At the athlete reception dinner on Tuesday night Dave Castro went into more details about the Squat Clean ladder event, Plow Pull and Climbing Snail event in the individual competition.

Castro ended the reception by telling individual athletes to be prepared to board a bus that would leave the Marriott at 3:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning. He revealed no further specifics.

“I knew he was going to do some Navy SEAL shit. I knew it,” said seven-time Games competitor Christy Adkins, referencing Castro’s decade-long career as a Seal. “It’s our sick nature that we’re all more excited than anything else.”

About The Author

Editor-In-Chief at BOXROX. I come from a background of rugby and weightlifting. Growing up in the English Lake District, I spent a great deal of time swimming in its stunning lakes and rivers. In 2015 my brothers and I became the first people to swim the 145km length of the River Eden, from source to mouth, in 9 days. We also swam the Corryvreckan whirlpool, the third largest in the world, and Crossfit is a huge part of my training for these events.
