Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

TREVOR BACHMEYER BANNED AND DISQUALIFIED

What people will do.... i am just amazed

April 11, 2017

Trevor Bachmeyer, 44, has been disqualified from the 2017 Reebok CrossFit Games competition. Bachmeyer was previously ranked first worldwide in the Masters Men 40-44 Division, and second in the individual division in the NorCal Region.

Each year, prior to awarding invitations to Regionals, CrossFit confirms the capacity of potential Regional athletes through video review. Bachmeyer submitted a video of Open Workout 17.3 upon request. His video submission was flagged by one of CrossFit's judges, which prompted a request for additional videos. After review of Bachmeyer's 17.5 video, a judge determined that only a single round was performed and then repeated on a loop to give the appearance of 10 rounds. Subsequent analysis by CrossFit Inc.'s video department also supported this determination.

Bachmeyer's Open scores will be invalidated immediately. In addition, he will be banned from competing in any CrossFit-sanctioned event for a period of four years from today, pending an appeal, if any.
