Coach Rick Scarpulla of Ultimate Advantage Training has been helping CrossFitters lately (including me) prepare for CrossFit competitions.
As a side note I find it interesting how some high level coaches have started being attracted to CrossFit now that it has developed into a relatively wide spread sport. Now that there is something to win, REAL coaches, like Rick, who live eat and sleep the forging of winning athletes, have started becoming interested.
Anyway, a recent article of his sums it up this way: "CrossFit is a strength sport that requires endurance, not an endurance sport that requires strength."

One guy he worked with also characterized competitive CrossFit as "a strongman competition for people who aren't very strong", haha. I see where he's coming from.
I figured the very strength oriented people on this board would find this stuff interesting.
