Greg Glassman, the founder of CrossFit, talks in this video about the future of the CrossFit Games, specifically about the growth of the purse and how that will affect the level of competition. In 2007, the winner of the CrossFit Games received $500. This year, the winner will receive $250,000. The question was raised, can the "garage" gym crossfitter compete against a six figure sponsored athlete?? I think so.
