2008 CrossFit Games Final – “Heavy Squat Clean Grace”
30 Squat Cleans to Overhead (155/105)
A little back story: The Games started in 2007 as literally a fun weekend event held at Dave Castro’s ranch in Aromas CA. In 2008 a movie (Every Second Counts) was made following the experience and performance of a few of the athletes who did well in 2007. In the final event athletes had a stagered start. The story line was supposed to be about the little guy – Chris Spealer – taking on the big guy – Josh Everett. With very little attention and almost no video footage in the ESC Movie Jason Khalipa came from way back in the field to win the 2008 Games.
Here is the missing footage of Jason Khalipa’s come from behind win in the 2008 Games. Things have really come a long ways in such a short time!
