Day 113: Coach Mike

How many coaches out there can snatch 240#? 

Better yet, how many coaches out there can snatch 240#+ AND jump over a 6'5" bar? Don't worry, Ill wait for an answer.

Heres another question, how many coaches have competed and excelled in all aspects of fitness before CrossFit competitions even existed?

Before CrossFit coach Mike competed in the Decathlon event in Track in Field and has competed in the National Level during his college years. The Decathlon included 10 events over a 2 day period which tested speed, accuracy, agility, power, endurance, strength, stamina, balance, coordination, and flexibility. The Scoring system in the Decathlon is similar to scoring in a CrossFit Competition where you earn point based on how well you do in a certain event. The events in the Decathlon are; 110Hurdles (42" hurdles), 100m , 400m, 1500m, high jump, long jump, javelin, shot put, discus, and the pole vault.
