Below is a CrossFit Documentary done by a Student at San Jose State. It is lengthy but provides a good history of the games and some good insight from elite level athletes.

There were a few mistakes which are listed Below, Courtesy of www.crossfitoneworld.com
- 00:23- CrossFit started in 2001 not 2005. The current look to the www.crossfit.com website started in 2003. It looked way different before that.
- 02:18- Interesting that he states Greg Glassman was a "high school" gymnast. I know he was a gymnast at some level, but I'm not sure if it was high school, college, or club. I've heard it said that he walks with a limp because of a gymnastics injury.
- 05:32- Death By Burpee is 20 minutes not 10 minutes, so don't think I am posting it as 10 minutes next time it comes up. Crossfit One World was the first gym to post Death By Burpee. It wasn't my idea though. The credit goes to Matt Munson of CrossFit Champions. He told me about the workout but stated he never posted it because he didn't want to kill any of his clients.
- 06:17- My quote was taken out of context. I was talking about long term side effects on CrossFitters doing CrossFit with poor coaching and lack of sound technique.
- 11:50- Vien had a pretty good idea about how you qualify for the Games, but his numbers were a bit off. The top 60 men and women from each sectional move onto regionals. Every region is different (I think), but only the top four from the NorCal region move onto the CrossFit Games.
