CORRECTION:  This podcast, originally aired on January 19, 2022, has been removed by Morning Chalk Up.  It incorrectly stated that CrossFit Games and its then Director of Sport, Dave Castro, knew on the day of events taking place at Lake Monona, Wisconsin, during the CrossFit Games, that tests showed unsafe levels of E. coli at event locations.  There was a one-day incubation period before the department reported results for testing at event locations, which were specifically requested by CrossFit. The test results returned to CrossFit on the first day of events at Olin Boat Launch (taken from samples the day before) reported the water there was safe.  Unsafe levels of E. coli at this area were not reported to CrossFit until the day after participants were required to swim in this area after exiting their kayaks.  We regret the error.
