The Rope Climb (Wrapping)

froning 2011

Rich Froning dominated the 2010 CrossFit Games … mostly. With top placings in nearly every event through the first two days, he held the lead going into the final events. Then came the rope climbs, which Froning was unable complete, causing the title of Fittest on Earth to slip through his grasp. Fast-forward a year to 2011’s first event in the Tennis Stadium in Carson, California. A giant rope climbing rig stood in Froning's path once again. Froning went on to win the event, showing that champions not only work on improving their weaknesses but turn them into strengths.
