Here’s a blog post from CrossFit Aggieland suggesting CrossFit become part of the Olympics.
The author makes the point that much of the Olympics is so specialized that many gold medal winners barely qualify as “athletes.” The author also suggests that to truly find worthy athletes, you’d have to combine Olympic events, something that the CrossFit Games has done in some fashion.
What do you think about this? Would you like to see CrossFit, or a cross-competition in the Olympics?
