From one Christian brother to another: I really appreciate how you have praised God in your interviews throughout the Crossfit coverage. Your boldness for God is just as impressive as your fitness level. Keep it up!

Congratulations Rich Froning! Praise the LORD for He is worthy of all praise! You did it brother!
"Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.
The ungodly are not so, but are like the chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish." -Psalm 1

Just added up the scores brother! All you have to do is complete each of the final three events, and even if you finished last on each of the final three events, you will still be in first place over-all! You are the 2011 CrossFit Games champion! Praise the LORD!
