Â “Ready for anything” is probably the best non-technical definition of fitness we have. Ready for not just the unknown, but for the unknowable. Firefighters, cops and soldiers have no specific idea of what they will be required to do when they respond to a call or engage the enemy. They don’t know how long the effort will be, how much rest they’ll get between calls, or how things will change mid-stream.
The 2010 Games are going to emphasize this component of real world fitness (to a point). We’re only going to announce the next element of the competition at one time. Everyone will learn what the event is about an hour before it kicks off. Shortly after the event is completed, the athletes (and the public) will learn when their next event is. We’re not going to say how many events there are, nor how they are spread out throughout the weekend. We will say that there will be some cuts of athletes and teams throughout the weekend.
