It might not be the easiest, but at least most competitors are familiar with the final workout for this year’s CrossFit Games Open.
The seven minute ladder AMRAP of thrusters and chest to bar pull ups is the exact same workout that ended last years Open, so most of us already knew what a good score was heading into day one.
In the first 24 hours we have already had a number of big names complete the WOD, including current female leader Kristan Clever, 2008 male champion Jason Khalipa and 2009 runner-up Tommy Hackenbruck.
Here’s where the leaderboards’ stand at 10:30am AEST, 3:30pm PT:
For the first time this CrossFit Games Open, 2010 champ Kristan Clever has completed the workout in the first day instead of the last. Her score of 137 reps is the best yet in the women’s’ field and keeps her in the number one spot overall. Remarkably, Clever has posted the highest score in four of the five workouts so far.
From Clever, there is a big gap to North Central’s Emma Moburg-Jones and Sarah McCormick.
Danielle Sawyer has the second best score for the workout with 119 reps, a massive 18 reps less than Clever’s total.
At this stage most of the big names, including Annie Thorisdottir, Julie Foucher and Emily Bridgers, are yet to post a score.
The men’s comp has a new leader with South American Orlando Trejo in the top spot after posting the fifth best score of the week so far, getting 145 reps.
At this stage the best score of the week is 155 reps by Jason Khalipa who now sits in third spot overall. His training partner Neal Maddox is in second spot after posting 146 reps. Coincidentally, that’s the exact same score he got in last year’s CrossFit Games Open.
Tommy Hackenbruck posted the 12 best score for the week, so far, with 140 reps and now sits in 60 position overall.
Last week’s leader Rich Froning is still yet to complete the workout, as too is Sean Thomson who was in second spot overall after workout 12.4.
Just like Kristan Clever, Valley CrossFit is still leading the team comp after day one of the fifth and final workout, after posting a combined total of 137 reps, which is just the 168th best score so far.
It’s is still early days however with many athletes yet to complete the workout, so we can expect that number to change drastically over the next three days.
Hacks Park Ute and CrossFit Wilmington round out the top three, while the best team score at the moment is 552 reps by CrossFit Katy.
