For those who need an introduction, this is Rich Froning, four-time CrossFit Games champion. Watch this highlight reel of his win at the 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games.
But it almost wasn't a repeat win. Up until the final three workouts on the last day, a win was anything but a certainty. Many wrote him off. Some said that for the first time, they had seen some weaknesses in his game. A few fervent supporters stood by him.
And this small group of believers was proved right. Froning displayed an intensity on the final day unlike anything you may have seen from this man before. And we're not just talking about intensity as it related to power output. We're talking about a fire, a passion, a determination, perhaps even an anger? You can see these emotions displayed clearly in this video.
