The Row/Sledgehammer/Row event at the 2009 CrossFit games was arguably the most varied event of the weekend. It involved all of the 10 general physical skills, with a particular emphasis on accuracy and coordination.
Almost all the competitors were accurate and consistent when they struck the stake softly. Only a few were able to connect with the stake at full force. Most were somewhere in between. The difference is the ability to maintain accuracy at higher levels of intensity.
We will be featuring videos of this event in the near future (both men and women). This video by Sevan Matossian is a series of clips that show what went on behind the scenes of the event.
