Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

So what do we expect for 17.5

DU's and what???

Something with a barbell? OHS, hang power clean, power cleans.... muscle ups, ring dips.... front squats from the ground, S2O...

Looking at the athletes this must be something with heavy weight and lungs or maybe even a 17.5 and 17.5a.

Looking at the athletes they select has proven to not be helpful in the past.

I think DUs and Thrusters are very likely. Beyond that I have no clue.

Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Just to close off the whole thing with the open...

CF HQ should have looked into the scoreboard and fixed the final problem that is still there!!!

If you did not compelte all 5 weeks then you should not be infront of anyone that completed all 5 weeks... many of them and their results are ahead of those that completed all 5 weeks which is not fair on those that actually did complete all 5 weeks. It all has to do with the number of points they received for being last that specific week.

This means that thousands of people would actually move XXX number of places up the leaderboard.

Come on CFHQ, fix this because this is not fair on allot of people. If you don't then i can't see why we should bother next year if the leader board is only good and correct for the elite but now for those 99% normal humans trying their best.

Here's an example of this.

No result logged for 1 week yet still ahead of others...

Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Alex,
I agree with you. I think a zero rep score should bump you behind the last person who completed all workouts.

For the individual athletes in 75,000th place it may make a difference. For the event organizers (CrossFit HQ), it probably doesn't matter much. It would matter more if it meant the difference between qualifying for Regionals or not.

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.
