Jolie Gentry won the inaugural 2007 CrossFit Games. She was one of the top seeds going into 2008, and ended up finishing 5th overall. Shortly before the 08 Games, Sevan and Carey caught up with Jolie on duty as a Newark, CA police officer. In this video Jolie talks about her competitive drive and what pushes her in workouts. We get to follow as Jolie pushes through the Deadlift Burpee workout of the 2008 CrossFit Games.

Seriously awesome. That exemplified virtuosity in the form department, too.

I better not chew bubblegum and look at that picture much. Guaranteed to bite my tongue or inside cheek. Ouch.

Do not post said picture near ladders. Do not think of said picture near solid objects like walls or posts.

I wish she was my "today".

But I can wait until tomorrow.

Red -

Jolie is timeless. Her being transcends all measures of time and space. She is all things at all times.

I had assumed the "yesterday" comment was a joke, I guess maybe I give people too much credit.

Jolie yelled at me during the Level 1 Cert WOD in Columbus about my air squat being unsatisfactory. It was a moment of pure otherness. You're right Greg she exists outside of time.
Is she yesterday, today, or tomorrow? The answer is, Yes...........
Seriously Jolie great job on a tough WOD. Way to hit it.
And thanks to you and the rest of the crew that taught at the Columbus Cert. It was a great experience.

That was one of a small handful of WOD videos that truly made me shiver. Amazing effort, and props to the camera for putting the viewer "in the moment". I'm rootin for you at the Games, Jolie! Bring the title back home!

Timeless? Seriously? Let's not go overboard. She's a legitimate athlete, for sure! Let's just not get carried away. Can't wait to see what you do at the Games, Jolie. Good luck!
