Re: CF Games 2011 General Thread

how is the scoring done on the last events with the cuts? is it the same? is it even possible for anyone to beat fronning at this point without a DNF?

love the choices for events this year. truly have included everything.

I am impressed too.

That's what you should look like at 60.....

not 200 lbs overweight in the hospital undergoing quadruple bypass.

No joke, we watched one of the 60+ womens heats in a lull yesterday, I can't believe those ladies were doing TTB... they're probably fitter than I am at less than half their age

Re: CF Games 2011 General Thread

Fronning and Anne T have huge leads (which is awesome cuz I really like both of them) but CF said that the new scoring system was going to bring a closer competition at the end....would you think CF could create the final WODs to force a closer finish? Trying to pick an event based on Anne Ts/ Rich's weaknesses (good luck) or picking something that is Kristen Cs strength?

They will not pick something based on someones strength / weakness. Thats not cool.

A skill event next followed by a everything event? (FGB?)

They might do a "points = seconds" advantage for the final workout (usually a chipper) which would make it come down to the final workout basically.

If they really wanted to make it closer they could say 3 pts = 1 second. So Annie who is 20 pts ahead would get a ~7s head start and froning who is 83 pts ahead would get a ~28s head start.

Future Headline... Froning was in the lead until the last event called "Everyone with the last name not Froning gets 100 points."

Apparently according to the games fb page comments, the skills 1 rankings for women have been significantly re-arranged, which is how Annie T got such a big jump, because Kris's ranking from that event dropped. ??
