Games09_CharityCrowd.jpgThe 2009 CrossFit Games Complete Story!

The long wait is almost over! Three epic stories will be told with a total of over 10 hours of footage. The entire content will be released in the CrossFit Journal in its own category. There will be 19 total posts, one for each event for the men and women, and three for the Affiliate Cup.

Each part will be available in three versions: True HD (720p), standard Windows Media, and standard QuickTime, which will be iPod/iPhone compatible.

Because they will be in their own category, they can be fed automatically into iTunes. There will be instructions for how to view the videos on your TV if you so choose.

Once we start, we will release one part per day for 19 days. We'll start with all eight Men's episodes, followed by the three Affiliate Cup episodes, and capped off with the eight Women's episodes.

No official date yet, but probably within a week.

Are you going to release it to DVD? I need to watch it from start to finish at least 3 times a week.

That's pretty cool. I love the attention and amount of effort that HQ's putting into the coverage of the games, and getting the content out to everyone who subscribes to the Journal, that's awesome.

If you made it in a DVD format that would be awesome. We wanna host it at our gym for all our clients like the last years games.

Hopefully you use x264 to encode it, will make the download smaller but keep high quality, better than h264 .mov will.
