4 photos, of the same man, in a 30 second period.   The variance and breadth in expression is the reason I make this post.  All pictures were processed individually with obvious differences.

This photo shocked me.  I thought Kenneth(180lbs) was much larger than Josh Bridges (165lbs), but in this side by side photo, you can see that height, not girth is the primary difference.  Both men are extremely swollen after having done 100 wall balls, 100 pull ups, 100 pistols and 100 one-armed dumbbell snatches.

He looks like a champion.  Josh Bridges made it look easy today.  After winning the 100′s work out (event 4), he reached into the audience and plucked a child (his son I presume) from the crowd.  Many other athletes just collapsed after this unbelievable show of strength and power.

Kenneth Leverich was unforgettable in 2012.  He was young, kind, approachable and built like a seasoned CrossFitter.  If it were not for Josh Bridges (photo coming tomorrow), Leverich would appear bigger than life.

Annie Thorisdottir (7)

The 2013 CrossFit Games season is here!  A sold out crowd at South Brooklyn CrossFit got to stand just a few feet away from the remarkable and photogenic Annie Thorisdottir.  Annie moved with focus and determination.   She never broke pace, for the 10 minute AMRAP workout, and the crowd went nuts.  She showed us why she is the champ, she glowed, she smiled, I think she even pranced.
