This whole idea of 'fitness' is very unclear.
I'm sorry, but Ashton Eaton could destroy Froning in a strength endurance competition... as could Trey Hardee.
First, it is fittest, not best athlete.
Second, who sells more magazines, Mark Wahlberg or Paavo Nurmi?
Third, I hate everything to do with crossfit, but lets face it, we runners are not really overall fit. We're just skinny endurance beasts with, usually, very little explosive strength and athleticism.
