We’re nearing an end to week two of the 2012 CrossFit Games Open, and it’s fair to say workout 12.2 has done good job of dividing the leaderboard.
After a relatively simple exercise in WOD 12.1 (burpees), this week’s snatch has seen some of the serious contenders rise to the top, and some of the early bolters fade away.
Last weeks male co-leader Danila Shokhin has now dropped out of the top 40 after managing just 60 reps in workout 12.2, while reigning champion Rich Froning Jr. has shot to the top of the leaderboard after posting the highest score so far in week two.
In the women’s half, Kristan Clever continues to dominate and holds onto the top spot, but has been joined in the top ten by a number of other high profile competitors.
Here’s a quick look at where some of the big names are after workout 12.2:
Rich Froning Jr. (2011 Champion) – 1st place, 98 reps in workout two
Dan Bailey (2011 open winner) – 4th, 95
Blair Morrison (5th 2011) – 19th, 87
Jason Khalipa (2008 Champion) – 24th, 94
Rob Forte (3rd Australia 2011) – 27th, 83

In terms of our ‘celebrity’ CrossFitter’s, The Biggest Loser trainer Bob Harper struggled this week, scoring only 47 reps, but has told us via Twitter he’ll give the workout another shot before the deadline closes on Sunday at 5 pm PT. At this stage Fitness Lonnie is still yet to register a score.
Earlier this week we did a piece on some of the former, and current professional athletes taking part in this year’s Open. At this stage, MMA fighter Dustin Winterhalt is the best placed out of all of them sitting in 189th position after scoring 75 reps in workout 12.2.
With half a day still remaining in workout 12.2, we can expect to see even more changes to the leaderboards. We’ll keep you up to date with all the news as it happens.
