The Outlaw Way, Part 2: Why National Champions at the Games Will be Awesome

The Outlaw Way are back for Part 2 of their CrossFit Games commentary (watch Part 1 here). In this 6-minute episode, the crew talks about the new National Champion element of the Games. Over the course of six minutes, Rudy Nielsen lays out his reasoning for why he likes the National Champions going to Madison.

“Another thing I like about it is there’s going to be some star that pops out, right?” comments Nielsen. “There’s a guy from Trinidad that is good at something that happens early that’s one of those cut events, a long race or something like that.”

He continues, “There’s going to be a start that pops out that everyone’s going to love. It’s going to be fun to watch. Some guy that nobody’s ever heard of…and it’s going to be fun to watch.”
