Day four into workout 12.3 of the 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games Open and today marks the end of week three. We now only have two more workouts and two more weeks in the competition but already we are seeing some of the more well know names and even some new ones making their presence felt.
Here is where the leader board stands at 18:00 AEST, 00:00 Pacific.
In the women’s division the past 24-hours has seen last years champion Annie Thorisdottir, who had been holding on to the top sport for the last 4 days, lose her position. Earlier in the day it was Julie Foucher with her 531-reps that held 1st place. Yet she only managed to maintain that position until the 2010 champ, Kristan Clever posted her outstanding score of 540-reps. That works out to an amazing 15 completed rounds!
All these reps and all these rounds means the women’s leader board has seen quite a transformation in the last 24-hours. Annie Thorisdottir now sits in 4th, behind 3rd place Andrea Ager (503-reps). Julie Foucher is 2nd, leaving the top spot to Kristan Clever, who now sits in 1st place with just two events to go. Rounding out the top ten is Megan John (468-reps) and Cameron Williams (447-reps) who are tied for 9th.
The men’s division unlike the women’s did not see an overnight change to any of the top three places. Rich Froning Jr (531-reps), Josh Golden (483-reps) and Dan Bailey (518-reps) all held onto their respective 1st, 2nd and 3rd positions.
Jason Khalipa, the 2008 Games champion was pushed out of the top ten and currently sits in 15th. Neil Maddox, Jason’s training partner has also slid down the leader board overnight and now sits in 10th place.
To the teams division: just like last week, not only did Valley CrossFit (2484-reps) swoop in overnight to claim 1st place, Brick Nation (2633-reps) and Raw Training (2449-reps) took second and third. The only change this week was Brick Nation took 2nd place while Raw Training took 3rd. QCCF completes the top ten with 2317-reps.
With only two more events to go only time will tell if all these big names will be able to hold onto their lead.
