Going Team and Taking Podiums w/ Alex Smith, Cody Mooney, Jessica Griffith, and Dani Speegle — Barbell Shrugged #407

Super teams are taking over the 2019 CrossFit Games. For the first time in the history of the CrossFit Games, the affiliate cup has transitioned into a team competition where athletes around the world can team up to create super teams.
