If you really want to find the best athletes in America, you'd have a better chance looking where you might not first think to do so.
Since the Reebok CrossFit Games held its inaugural competition in summer 2007, contestants from around the world have come together for a couple of days out of the year to prove they can harness near-perfect athleticism better than anyone else.

Oh, and Sam Briggs' back could probably eat you...
If her rope routine doesn't finish you off first.
You couldn't handstand a day in Brooke Ence's shoes.
How Björgvin Karl Guðmundsson can do this is as hard to explain as his name.
