Another day and another new leader in the 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games Open. This time it’s in the women’s competition, where two Emily’s (Emily Friendman and Emily Bridgers) now head the field after some impressive performances in workout 12.2.
In the men’s side there has been some big movement in the top 20, but Rich Froning Jr. continues to be the man the beat, while we now have a brand new top three in the team section.
Two days into the workout (11AM AEST, 4PM Pacific time) here is how the leaderboards look:
The big mover in the females section is 25 year old Lindsey Valenzuela, who has posted the highest amount of reps so far for workout 12.2, with 108 completed snatches. That moves her into 10th position overall, but still a bit off leader Emily Bridgers, second placed Emily Friedman and third placed Kristin King.
At this stage, Valenzuela and weightlifter Lindsay Taylor (104 reps, 526th place), are the only athletes to pass the 100 mark in this workout, but we are still waiting on last years winner Annie Thorisdottir, and 2010 champ Kristan Clever, to post their scores.
In the men’s half, we have seen a few more big names posting scores online, with Pat Barber (84 reps) and Jason Khalipa (94 reps) both moving into the top 20.
Rich Froning Jr., however, has held onto top spot, ahead of Sean Thomson, and last years games open winner Dan Bailey.
In terms of the best score posted so far for the workout 12.2, Froning holds that title after pulling out 98 reps, but he’s now been joined by Scott Paltos who also got 98.
9th place Neal Maddox is just behind them with 97 reps for WOD 12.2.
In the Team section, yesterdays leader CrossFit Athletic has slid down to fourth spot after scoring a combined total of 421 reps in workout 12.2.
RAW Training now leads the field, with QCCF Awesome in second place, and Front Range CrossFit rounding out the podium.
The best team score so far for workout 12.2, is now held by CrossFit Safe with 506 reps.
