From May 15 to May 31, hundreds of CrossFit athletes from around the world competed in eight regionals, and CrossFit HQ made this cool video. The CrossFit Games start in 32 days, on July 21! The Games have been held every summer since 2007. Athletes compete in workouts they learn about only hours beforehand, and the Games are styled as a venue for determining the “Fittest on Earth,” where competitors should be ready for anything.
- Peter M. took his last class at CFSBK this morning! He is moving to Greenwich, CT. We miss you already, Peter!
- Congrats to Noah S., who wrote a paper about cybersecurity, which won an award from the faculty at NYU Law School, where he just graduated last month! The paper is written so that one could hand it to a business leader who doesn’t know how to code and get them up to speed about overall strategies for managing cybersecurity risk at their firm—which means it might be useful to CFSBKers who are lobbying their bosses for better cybersecurity at work or calling the shots themselves.
