I predicted Kyle (left) to be a serious contender in 2009 – 3 years later Kyle Kasperbauer takes 3rd place at the CrossFit Games.  Rich Froning (right) looks to be the favorite for 2013; a one man dynasty ?

We got up at 3:45 AM and made the treck to Camp Pendleton.  The athletes showed up a couple of hours later, got in the water, road bikes, and ran.  The day was long and filled with great photo opportunities.

An epic all-star battle between these three CrossFit elite.

The 16-35mm is a good lens, even with noticeable distortion when completely wide on a full frame camera.
