Just like is any CrossFit competition, you have to be good at everything to win. Chris, or more popularly HAM, was the most well rounded out of everyone which is what made him a clear winner. Measurements, benchmarks, and points were all exceptional. We also need to add that HAM was on the first responder team that won last weekend, and he is training for the Boston Marathon. Crazy mofo.

I remember a year ago talking to HAM and complementing him on his improvements at that time. He told me then that he would never reach is full potential in CrossFit because he would never give up pizza and beer on the weekends. Well, he proved himself wrong. It is especially cool to see someone win who has been doing CrossFit for over a year before the challenge and get this level of results. It is a great testament to the paleo principles.
