CastroRollCall.jpgJohn Buffone and Marty Cej of BNN fame were a two man film crew at the 2009 CrossFit Games. They produced a news-styled, behind the scenes video about the Games that is unlike anything we've produced before.

They talk about the organization of the Games along with the challenges and purposes of the event. Athletes, fans, organizers, and Coach Glassman are briefly interviewed.

This is really good. I enjoyed that very much.

If others like it too, maybe a useful option for future videos?

Well that was fantastic. Great job! Minute 3:52 will be seared into my brains for the next 12 months.

Yes Mike, that's what you sound like...

Wow! Very nice video. It would be a dream come true with an hour+ long video like this from the games!

I just want to say my thanks for everyone that made possible the amazing Games weekend. The spirit between athletes, judges, spectators and volunteers was something that I have never before experienced. I also want to say my thanks to Crossfit HQ. My Finnish friends were a BIG help during the preparation for games and during the games...so THANKS!!!

I think someone suggested this earlier, but I do it again.
HQ should name a WOD after every champion (like heroes or girls). Chipper from the games should be named after MIKKO!
