Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Rather lengthy C&P about Teams from pages 4 and 5 of the 2013 Rulebook (formatting is lost due to it coming from a PDF).

Quote:
Teams will consist of at least three (3) men and three (3) women who validly register and train primarily at the same gym (as defined below) starting no later than January 1.
Athletes may only compete for one Team during each CrossFit Games season.
i. The intent of the Team competition is to determine the fittest gym. Therefore, the athletes who represent each Team must train primarily at that gym. CrossFit defines this as training the majority of their training days and workouts at the Team gym.
Creating an “All-Star” Team with Athletes from different gyms is not acceptable.
1. “More Than Half” Rule: Athletes must train at the same physical location
as the Team more than half of their training days per week, and may not
train at another location more days a week than they train at the team
location. More than half means:
- Four (4) days if the Athlete trains six (6) or seven (7) days a week
- Three (3) days if the Athlete trains four (4) or five (5) days a week
2. This should be continuously true for the season with reasonable
exceptions for temporary travel. For all Teams who progress to Regionals
and/or the Games, all competing members of the Team must continue to
meet these requirements.
3. If there is any ambiguity about whether a member of the Team meets
these requirements, they should be prepared to produce daily training
logs and photo documentation proving that they train more than half of
the time at the Team location (e.g. An Athlete who formerly trained at
another gym, or who lives suspiciously far from the team gym). If the
Athlete cannot prove they meet all requirements if requested by CrossFit
Inc., the Team and individual may be subject to disqualification.
4. More than one Team may come from a gym, as long as all members of the
Team consistently train at that physical location.
5. Being a trainer at a gym does not automatically qualify an Athlete to
compete for one of their Teams. The trainer must personally workout
there for more than half of their training days.
6. Affiliate owners may not compete on any team except those from their
Affiliate. Affiliate owners may not change their Licensee of Record in
order to compete for a different team.
7. If an Affiliate or gym opens after January 1st and before the
commencement of the first Open workout, their owner may not compete
for another Team.
ii. Athletes must be listed on their Team roster prior to the close of the first Open workout in order to compete for that Team during the Open, Regionals or Games.
iii. Team captains must first register as an individual Athlete, and then select which Affiliate they train at. They must then register a Team, and select any Athlete from their home Affiliate who is not competing for another team. Athletes may also request to join the Team. If a Team captain does not train at an Affiliate, they may select “unaffiliated,” and select from the list of “unaffiliated” Athletes. “Unaffiliated” Teams must train at the same physical location and meet the same requirements as all other Teams.
iv. If a gym or owners own or operates multiple locations, each location must register its own Team. Teams may not include Athletes that personally workout more than half of the time at another location, even if the other location shares a name, owner, membership plan or programming.
v. Athletes must be registered as a member of the Team before the close of the first Open workout, and they may not compete for any other Team during the course of the season, even if another Team from their gym qualifies to compete at the next stage or stages.
vi. IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE TEAM CAPTAIN TO ENSURE THE TEAM IS USING ONLY ELIGIBLE ATHLETES. There will be no warnings issued. If a Team uses an ineligible Athlete, the Team will be disqualified from competition and, subject to the discretion of CrossFit Inc., some or all of the Athletes on the Team may be prohibited from competing as individuals in later stages of the season or future seasons or Events.

From page 11

e. Advancement
II. one week from the end of the Open to declare whether they will compete as an individual or for their Team. They must choose one or the other.
I still think this is a problem. Unless I'm reading it wrong, theoretically a gym could send a team to the regional without any of the members that actually earned the spot (e.g. the top 3 men and 3 women who earn the team a spot all go individual).

That is true. They take the top 3 individual scores for each Open workout, so yes it can be from different people each time, or the same 3 people that all go individual. I think you are missing the point though. They are looking for the fittest GYM, not the fittest 6 person team (that's why they don't allow "all-star" teams). So it's not unreasonable to allow scores from members of the gym that compete individually.

Mikko said he sold his share of his box on FB. Looks like he could be training full time.

Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Just had a dream last night that the first event of the open was going to be a 4min AMRAP of 385# Cleans.....

Something is wrong with my sub-conscious!

Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

So, everyone-
Any more predictions on what the first WOD of the 2013 Open will be?

As long as it's not the 7min burpee AMRAP, I'm fine with whatever.
