Re: 2018 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread
The reason you haven't seen it come up before is because rowing wasn't the main factor in the workout like it was this time.
It's entirely likely people have used them before. Honestly it's not their fault that they used the rower they had that they thought was legal. If the Open requires a concept 2 rower then they should specifically say that.
The only thing is that they should have realized after watching their effort and comparing it to someone else's that they would get caught with the big of a score. I wonder if they did it knowing full well that they could make CF look a little silly.
Looking forward to 18.2 today.
