Games09_TeamSweden.jpgThink you had a gnarly commute to the CrossFit Games. The affiliate team from CrossFit Copenhagen in Denmark spent a cool 20 hours in the air closing the roughly 6,000 miles to Aromas. Pair that with a short notice entry into the competition and their presence is all the more impressive.

They finished the weekend in the 41st spot, highlighted by securing 20th overall in the run event.

This video, From "In Pursuit Of Sunday," by Again Faster, follows the team through Fridays events.

A few comments...

1. Well done in the competition with the travel etc... maybe it's an advantage though - Mikko from Finland won ;). Your energy, intensity and teamwork were obviously top notch.

2. If you take the time to learn English and speak it so well, try to learn to do it without cursing every second word. In North America, this doesn't make you "hard/tough" it just makes you look foolish.

3. Give it a break with the "too easy" stuff. Do better, WIN, then comment on how hard or easy the events are. Saying that events are too easy halfway through then finishing in 40 something place also looks foolish.

Hope more teams/athletes from Europe continue to emerge, let's make it as global as possible!

Good comments, Cam.

You will have to excuse my good friend Thor with his language - I think he was running pretty high on endorphines and possibly a few other natural stimuli from the competition. ;-)
