Re: 2018 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Alex, Yes that was so close. But thankfully did not go. Was busted up with injuries. Test them all find them all. Shoot throw in testing for all of the teens and masters.

CLB bounce strict press. Thankfully Boz come over and sorted it out on the 3rd attempt. Good for you Boz

she did all 3 lifts the same way yet only 1 was a NR... either the athletes don't listen to the requirements or the judge was not that good.

either its a good lift or its a NRep...

All three no reps but Boz came over right before her 3rd attempt. The males got the tougher judges for sure.

Very true, Cole Sager moved his heal and got a no rep


Maybe nerves for the judges at the start.

Re: 2018 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

The judging i've seen in general has not been consistent and kind of crappy.

There's been a couple ok/good judges but most seem like people they just picked off the street.

Also something as simple as a STRICT press...how do you mess that up...i mean you don't even have to listen to the directives to know, no bouncing, no jerking, no bending legs...makes me think some people were just gaming the system, seeing what they could get away with.

I will say Patrick Vellner surprised me big time with his DL, good on him.

You can tell some people don't really train the strict that much and work jerks and push presses way more.

Re: 2018 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Um, ok, so the slug/sled dog pull thing....

The finish is both feet need to cross into the blue line...

So, uh....can I just run to the finish line and leave the damn thing exactly where it is At the beginning?

Should have been that the whole slug crosses the line.

Other than that, not a bad event that Chaos

Judging was very inconsistent throughout. HQ needs to get that right before it really costs someone.

Re: 2018 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

I think that its always going to be that way. Grid was a good example of judging. Those athletes were going so fast that sometimes the professional judges had a hard time keeping up. And they were fantastic at it. They had instant replay to help and rules on how to remedy the situation.

Noah Olsen was hosed in the Crit. His pedal fell off, clearly mechanical. Crit racing has mechanical stations on both sides of the coarse. So he and Pat V should have been able to get those fixed and get a free lap and finish in the pack. Extra wheels could have been around for those peeps who could have flatted. So they put so much time into the bikes, training the athletes.. could have been more informed. Pat and Noah would have been in better shape after the 1st event to give Mat F a better run.

The worst calls I saw were CLB doing her bounce strict press. I really can't believe that she did that to her judge. Almost like Brooke Wells and her hspu with new standards.

Don't even get me going on the 45+ masters men. What a S@#T show from the Masters Qual to half way thru the games.

Re: 2018 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

another thought on Chaos:

Fikowski is so freakin' awesome. watch him on the burpees -- full burpee (full jump), burpee with slight jump, burpee with heel lift, burpee with no lift, just touch the tape. you can tell he's thinking "you're not gonna no rep me? fine, guess i'll just continue with these down-ups"
