How do you think your chances of going to the CrossFit Games 2010 are? I finished in 1st place in the UK & Ireland Sectionals so I’m right up there. However, I have a sneaking suspicion that the Scandinavian boxes are going to have produced some monsters! It’s all on the day and what each WoD is like. We’ll see!
