In each sport, we celebrate the winners, but we should also remember that it is the spirit of the athletes that make each game great.

The success of the CrossFit Games now in its 10th year is no different, due to the support of a strong community of athletes, affiliates and fans. The Spirit of the Games Award honours a Games athlete who embodies the spirit of that community and this year it was awarded to Kara Webb of Australia, with the stadium crowd ringing in typical Aussie support with ‘Oi Oi Oi’.
