CrossFit Oakland took the 08 Affiliate Cup with a dominant performance. What are they up to now, you ask? We sent Sevan and Carey to find out. They caught up with them on Saturday, Dec 20th, 2008 in the middle of an internal team competition. The workout was three teams of three athletes competing in a Linda-type workout. They're looking damn strong, too!

The Affiliate competition in 09 will be team workouts. What that means at this point is anyone's guess. We do know the majority of the competition will take place on the Friday before the individual competition, with only the top five teams going on to the Finals on Sunday morning.

Got anything to rival Oakland? Let us know. We'd love to post it here. Contact Tony for information about sending in video and photos.

CrossFit Oakland,

What was your time for that team WOD? You know, just in case we want a better idea of what we'll be chasing come July 12th...

These guys showed up in force (20+) to our Royal Rumble Affiliate competition at Diablo CrossFit and dominated the team competition. They have a whole bunch of baddasses at this factory of badasses.

I wasn't in attendance that day, but I believe the top two teams finished in ~5:15 and ~5:20. Perhaps there will be a part 4 of the video that will show the end of the workout...

Umm, isn't that Danny Schmeiding of CrossFitPetaluma and Russell Bruel ( short, bald guy ) of CrossFitMarin?

Blondie, if I am correct that it's Russ you may also be excited to know he's something of an amateur masseuse besides being able to crawl on walls ( if'n you like spiderman ).
