CrossFit threw down with a competition during UFC Fan Expo in Houston this past weekend. This two-day competition will took place both days of the Expo. In classic CrossFit fashion, the events were not announced in advance. This competition was held to showcase what it means to be a CrossFit Athlete. The workouts were what you’d expect form CrossFit, functional and intense…with a couple unique elements. Many of the best CrossFit Games athletes are headed down south to compete in this unprecedented CrossFit competition. Grouped into pairs of two, the Games athletes competed in a series of events on Friday and Saturday along with around a 100 other CrossFitters to determine the fittest male and female pairs. 

On the men’s side, 2011’s 2nd-place finisher Josh Bridges and 2009 champ Mikko Salo were thought to be the team to beat, but they faced some stiff competition.

The events were:

Each athlete does Jackie
Athlete 1 Row 1000, 50 Thrusters (45lbs), 30 Pull-ups. Once Athlete 1 comes off the bar after their 30th pull-up… Athlete 2 starts his/her row 1000, 50 Thrusters (45lbs), 30 Pull-ups.

winning time was 11:03
