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.

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.

Graham (far left) won the CrossFit Games in 2010.  His performances in 2011 and 2012 were of championship caliber.  Tony (center) is the director of CrossFit Media.  He has grown the CrossFit Media Department from 1 employee into a major web & television studio.  The Dave Castro (far right) is the c0-director of the CrossFit Training Department and the Director of the CrossFit Games.  Since 2007 to 2012, the CrossFit Games have grown from 70 to 70,000 participants.  Will CrossFit become the largest participatory sporting event in the world in 2013 ?

I shot about 8000 photos in 6 days at the CrossFit Games.  I also shot about 12 hour of video, mostly athlete interviews.  The two cameras – Canon 5D Mark III and 5D Mark II.

Even with the great ISO available on cameras today, I don’t like shooting over 640.

For the second year, CrossFit Inc, Coach Greg Glassman, Dave Castro, Tony Budding and a gang load of other all-star CrossFit.com employees have brought the CrossFit world to television, via ESPN.  Tonight, was a great night, watching the first installment of the 2012 CrossFit Games on Direct TV channel 209 (ESPN 2).  The 2012 CrossFit Games will air more than 100 times between now and the 2013 CrossFit Games.

The 2012 CrossFit Games must have had 300 media/media related personnel.  I remember hearing that the official CrossFit media team took over 40,000 stills on Friday (day 2).  This guy in the photo is a photographer from Peru. These LED signs that many of us squatted in front of, made the 90+ degree stadium even hotter.
