The CrossFit Games may be over, but the coverage continues. All of the CrossFit Radio shows recorded from Aromas are now archived in the CrossFit Journal. These shows include a who's who of competitors, spectators, and CrossFit staff to talk about their experiences and perspective on the weekend.

Guests of the shows include: Paul Zavaglia of CrossFit Northwest, Darrell "Bingo" White, Coach Mike Burgener, Pat Barber, Jon Matzner, Jeremy Thiel, Josh Everett, Mike Warkentin, Russell Berger, Thor Larsen of CrossFit Copenhagen, Lauren Plumey, Christy Phillips, Tommy Hackenbruck, Freddy Camacho, James "OPT" FitzGerald, Mike "brOPT" FitzGerald, Adrian Bozman, Lee Knight, and Kristen Clever.

From the long lineup, you can see that Justin at CrossFit Radio covered many interesting and important topics during the weekend. You can download all of them for free from the CrossFit Journal.

Is it officially brOPT...or OPTbro? Enquiring minds want to know!

Daniel the name 'brOPT' came up at the Games and methinks it's gonna stick!

BrOPT is a serious contender in 2010. Michael's commitment to finish the chipper was "Khalipian".

I am a big fan of BrOPT, and second Sevan's prediction. Bingo you did a fantastic job last weekend.

I can't listen to this at work, but unless there is a someone else who spoke with CF Radio named John Malzner, then I think you meant Potomac CrossFit's own Jon Matzner.

If not, then I formally apologize to John Malzer ...

Apologies for the error. Corrections are in the works.

The media team is a little sleep deprived, still working 18 hour days to crank out more stories. We hope to take our first rest day in weeks on Monday.

Coming up within the next few days:

- the podcast version of a radio show featuring Tanya Wagner

- a CrossFit Journal "behind the scenes" story

- a CrossFit Journal story on why the deadlift stopped at 505 pounds

- a CrossFit Journal story on "The Final 16"

There will also be more coverage right here on the Games site. In the coming weeks, we will be doing stories on the new names and the new centers of excellence that emerged during the Games.
