Miles to Madison Episode 11 has been released. The episode covers the 3rd Day of Individual events at the 2021 CrossFit Games in Madison with a major focus on the snatch event.
Miles to Madison is a new CrossFit series focusing on the journey top athletes took to get to the CrossFit Games, starting with the Open, Quarterfinals and Semifinals, and ultimately covering the behind-the-scenes of the big event.
It provides “an unprecedented look at what goes on behind the scenes of the CrossFit Games season every step of the way” with interviews with CrossFit employees, athletes, and coaches.
Watch Miles to Madison Episode 11
The biggest focus of Miles to Madison Episode 11 is the snatch event, the last one for individual athletes and the only workout that would test purely the athletes’ strength.
“We test heavy lifts at the Game because that is part of CrossFit’s definition of fitness. And you can’t test fitness without testing strength,” says Justin Berg, vice-president of sales and partnerships at CrossFit Inc.
The centre of attention during the snatch event was Brooke Wells, due to her dislocated elbow injury, Tia-Clair Toomey and Annie Thorisdottir, and Guilherme Malheiros lifting 305lb like it was nothing.
