I personally don't see him as a "big name", but I do think a lot of these events can work towards his favour, especially the third one. That is a big hole to get out of though.

I wouldn't be surprised. He is 12th now because he had a 2nd in the handstand walk so he can still do it. The guy that I think will win the region is Mat Fraser though. Have been watching him for a while and this has been his first full year training for regionals/the games. He's a force.

Anybody else see how well the #1 team from Africa has done? It's just 3 events so far but it will be interesting watching them as the weekend progresses.

In this case when I say "big name" I'm thinking well known (and repeated Games competitor) and not necessarily someone who is actually in contention at the Games.

Definitely a lot of ground to cover, even if he does well the rest of the weekend.

True, however, Sam Briggs came 26th on the second event, and despite several firsts afterwards she didn't didn't make it.

I also second the Matt Fraser thing, the guy doesn't have many holes to his game.

Re: 2014 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

I am guessing Danny Nichols out of the South West may take the overall event lead on the hang snatch. Not sure how good he is at HS walking but he may surprise a few people this weekend.

Find out how right I am by the end of the day.

Kroon got no weight on the snatch, pretty much puts her out of contention, on the first attempt at 160 is wasn't even close!

Also, it looked like Horan was successful at 175 but got called no rep, thoughts?

It was VERY close, but I have to admit, at real-life speed, it did strike me as short of proper depth.
