Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Seems that the South West did not have any tearing.. must be in the New York water or something.

Crazy thing to happen to 4-5 guys in the same event.

Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

I think it was when the men tried to go unbroken and none of the women attempted that plus not being warmed up fully for the movement.

These are the elite and something like this is not based on the movement as they all workout 2-4 times a day.

or it was the water as Vic put it

Anyone ever think maybe Event 1 leading into Event 2 had something to do with the tears. Stretching the muscle out with all those pull ups with the vest on. Way Faster times in the east too.

Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Lucas Parker withdrew from the East Regionals after event 2. He doesn't give the diagnosis, but sounds like it could be rhabdo. Here is his statement from his Instagram:

Regionals update:

I decided to withdraw from this weekend's competition.

Halfway through the first event I started getting dizzy and lightheaded. I felt the distinct urge to sleep.

After finishing the event and leaving the floor with assistance from the medical team, I spent about half an hour getting my pulse, blood pressure, breathing, and temperature monitored and back to normal with help from the medical team.

After this I observed a very red colour in my urine.

In warmup and execution of event 2, my symptoms returned and persisted.

This is now becoming a trend for me - this pattern of events has occurred in other crossfit competitions.

Based on this, I felt it was unwise and unproductive to continue, this time.

Nobody is more disappointed about this than I am! Indeed, I am as perplexed as I am upset. I believe my prep this year was solid, and I felt good in the days and minutes leading up to this "system crash." THANK YOU to the medical staff and volunteers who took care of me and kept me safe.
The plan now is to continue recovering, and to pursue further testing and information.

I'll post more detailed thoughts in few days.

Wonder if he has a medical condition he doesn't know about yet? Just seems odd someone at his level would have this rhabdo, what sounds like at multiple comps.

Clearly he trains well on a day-to-day basis. I wonder why he'd have this negative reaction at competitions.

Yes that is crazy about Lucas. He is a great dude. Remember the games when he was not on point same circumstances. Maybe a back off session and get some major tests done. Hope that he heals up and finds himself back in the game if it works for him.
