Fastest Karen!

Anyone know what the fastest karen time is? I have done 50 wall balls in 1:25 so that means around 4:30 would be a sick time. I posted a 5:48 today which was pretty fast i thought. Just curious if anyone knows who holds the record.

I don't know who holds the record specifically, but sub 3-minute Frans seems to be what's considered Elite. Here's a PDF of Crossfit Southwest's standards for performance:

Hmm. What does Fran have to do with the fastest Karen time?

Nothing... because I'm absolutely retarded. I was thinking of today's WOD so I had Fran on my mind. Ignore me

However... on a related note (now) haha... that document I posted does have Wall Ball setup for 55x @20lbs for 2mins. Assuming that rate was constant, that would be 5:27 would be considered Elite according to that document.

Re: Fastest Karen!

The fastest time posted on Beyond the Whiteboard is 3:55 which is a pace of over 38 shots per minute, but obviously that was without any Games-style judges to verify ROM standards and whatnot. Peter Egyed, who finished in the top 16 at the Games this year, has a 5:30 posted. So if you're in his neighborhood or faster I think you can call yourself elite.

Re: Fastest Karen!

How tall is BrOPT? I can't imagine doing Karen in 4:43 even if I did all the reps unbroken simply because of the time it takes for the ball to reach the target and drop back down. But then again I'm 5'8".
