Outstanding Olympic Quotes

“The key is not the will to win. Everybody has that. It is the will to prepare to win that is important.” — Bobby Knight, American basketball coach of the 1984 gold medal-winning men’s team.

“I am building a fire, and every day I train, I add more fuel. At just the right moment, I light the match.” — Mia Hamm, American soccer player and 1996 and 2004 gold medalist

Scoring
Once you finish, you will turn in your scorecard at the registration table. Results will be tabulated on-site. In each event, first place receives 100 points, second receives 95, and it continues to fall by 5 points through fifth place, which is worth 80 points.  From sixth to 20th place, the drop is 2 points: sixth is worth 78 points, seventh is 76, and so on.  Then from 21st place on, the drop is 1 point: 21st gets 49 points, 22nd gets 48, etc.  This means that participating in an event guarantees you points, and skipping means leaving points on the table.

Awards
During the closing ceremony, the top three competitors in each event will be announced, as well as the top “respect” competitor in each event.  The individual event winners and the top three overall competitors with the highest total points receive custom awards.

Volunteers & Equipment
If you can’t complete this year, please volunteer. We need volunteers to help register pax, input scores, oversee events and take pictures and video. We need 45 lbs kettlebells and sleds. Click here for to volunteer yourself or equipment.

Final Words
This is a can’t miss event. (Check out last year’s highlights.) No other CSAUP or competition provides this level of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd F.  Come and compete against your bros and against your performance at BROlympics 2017.  If this is your first games, set a baseline to measure against future BROlympics.  Be there for yourself, but more importantly, your bros. SYITG!
