It’s been just 24 hours since the 12.2 workout for the 2012 CrossFit Games Open was released, and already we’ve broken the magical 100 rep barrier with 25 year-old Lindsay Taylor completing 104 reps in the grueling snatch workout.
While it’s only early days, The second WOD is already proving to be a leaderboard divider with some big changes in all the divisions.
One day into workout 12.2 and here is where we stand at 12pm Sydney time, 5pm Pacific Time:
While Taylor holds the top score so far in the Female division with 104 reps, her performance in workout 12.1 (96 reps) means she is still a fair distance from the leaders in 93rd place overall.
At this stage Gayle Shaloo from the South West region is the leader after scoring 80 reps in the second workout. Katie Schmitz (82 reps) is in second place and Pamela Gagnon (77 reps) in third overall.
Last weeks top three Kristan Clever, Andrea Ager and Jenn Chailler are all yet to complete the workout, along with last years champ Annie Thorisdottir, so expect some big changes in the next few days.
The leader in the men’s section is certainly no stranger to the CrossFit community. Last year’s winner Rich Froning Jr. currently holding the number one spot after pulling out 98 reps in the 12.2 workout, which at this stage is still the best score.
Froning is just ahead of Travis Page (79 reps), with last years open winner Dan Bailey (95 reps) in third spot.
The big mover on day one was CrossFit veteran Tommy Hackenbruck who posted the fourth best score overall with 90 reps, to jump him into 199th spot overall, after an average performance in WOD 12.1 (110 reps).
However, big names like Pat Barber, Jason Khalipa and Ben Smith still yet to post a score, as well a last weeks co-leaders Scott Pankchik and Danila Shokhin.
In the teams section, last weeks leader Brick Nation, and second placed Valley CrossFit are still yet to post a valid score on the Games website, and have been overtaken by CrossFit Athletic who is now in number one spot after posting a team score of 440 reps.
Eugene CrossFit is in second spot after posting 348 reps, while CrossFit Wilmington (371) is in third.
Fit2Fight, who are in 44th spot overall have the best score in workout 122 with 446 reps.
The big slider in this division was Swartz’s CrossFit Melbourne, which went from third position to 24th after posting a score of just 110 reps in workout 12.2.
Overall it’s been a eventful day on the leaderboard with many changes seen, however, with thousands of athletes still to complete the WOD, we can expect to see some big changes over the next few days.
