Background Info rom Aaron…

-This quadrennial event (every 4 years) originated in 1982 in San Francisco and alternates between N. American and European host cities

-It’s the largest LGBT sporting event in the world: 10,000 athletes from over 80 countries competing in 34 different sports (http://www.gg9cle.com)

-This will be my 3rd Games: 2002, Sydney Australia (indoor volleyball) and 2010, Cologne Germany (track & field)

-In 2010, I won 2 Gold (4x100m relay and pole vault) and a Silver medal (Decathlon)

-Just like the CrossFit Games, the age categories are 5 year increments and I’ll be competing in the 40-44 yr. old category

-My planned events in Ohio are: Decathlon, sprint relays (4×100 and 4×400), pole vault, javelin, triple jump and long jump. I’ll be representing both the city of San Francisco and Team USA

-The meet is 5 days long, Monday Aug. 11th – Friday Aug. 15th

-GG9 says that many sports will be live streamed at http://www.ccesportsnetwork.com. Their programming schedule is still pending.

-I’ll do my best to keep folks updated on my Facebook page
