Asking CrossFit to cancel Glock prizes for the Winners of the 2016 Crossfit Games
We are asking that CrossFit Inc and The CrossFit Games cancel their plans to award the 2016 Winners of the CrossFit Games with a Glock pistol.
"The top male athlete, the Top female athlete, and every member of the winning team will receive a GLOCK pistol." —Dave Castro, Director of the CrossFit Games"
Greg Glassman has talked about the values of the CrossFit Community and about doing things that are right and not for the money. This doesn't represent our community in any way, shape or form. Irrespective of anyone's right to bear arms in the US, branding the value of our community to be about awarding weapons as gifts and rewards is not what our community stands for.
CrossFit Inc would not form partnerships with fast food restaurants, alcohol companies, cigarette or pharmaceutical companies on the same basis. But a gun manufacturer is deemed as a good partner... this is not us. CrossFit is for health, fitness and the well being of the all people in all communities. This is not CrossFit. This should never be CrossFit.
This damages the reputation of every participant, athlete, and affiliate owner around the globe. We ask the community to sign our petition and for CrossFit Inc to immediately announce the cancellation of this partnership as this is just not appropriate for the global community that call themselves Crossfitters.

We ask that CrossFit Inc cancels the partnership with Glock for the Winner of the 2016 CrossFit Games as this does not represent our community values and completely misrepresents all the things at we all stand for when we proudly tell our friends, families and communities that we are CrossFitters.
