Sevan Matossian caught up with Jason Khalipa, 2008 CrossFit Games Champion, at his gym on Monday, July 6th.

The first video is an interview with the Champ on what he's been doing and what he's thinking about going into the Games this year.

In the second video, Jason is joined by two other top contenders: Pat Barber from CrossFit Santa Cruz and Tamaryn "Taz" Ventor from CrossFit New Zealand, winner of the Australasia Regional Qualifier. There is plenty of light banter amid impressive feats of strength in Taz's slow-mo muscle-ups, and Barber giving too much information about his workout attire.

Good luck Taz. Mean competitor- saw her at the Australasian Qualifiers. They breed them tough over there in New Zealand- hopefully see some more girls from the other Crossfit New Zealand affiliates next year.
