No women yet that I have heard. There was a rumor that Taylor Streid in central might have withdrawn because of a pec, but she has a shoulder issue.

Talked to my coach about the pec shenanigans, and he said he thinks it's happening to women in large because they train dips mkre often since more of them struggle with that piece of muscle ups, where guys don't do the same.

Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Just got back yesterday from judging the Central regional. It was my third year judging, and definitely the smoothest one yet for us. Josh Bunch and Sue Burton do a spectacular job with this event. I'm looking forward to Madison this year! Volunteer judges will be assigned to either teams or teens/masters so I'm not sure what I'll be doing yet, but either way I'm happy!

Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

I think at this point you would be foolish to deny the dips in event 2 weren't a bad idea. I would really like to see Castro change that event for the remaining Regional events. If not and if I was an athlete competing, I would be extremely careful how I approached that event.

Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

There is nothing inherently dangerous about Event 2 or inherently dangerous about the Ring Dip. 45 ring dips on the first day of competition is a very manageable amount and relatively low volume.

The pec injuries may be happening on the competition floor, however the injury was created in the training leading up to the regional competition. Its a multifactorial situation where you need to consider their shoulder extension+IR mobility, the deeper ring dip standard than they probably complete in training, their recovery during training (at the actual tissue level, Tendons can be pathological even without pain.), their training load before regionals, their training load over the previous year, increased situational stresses...etc.

The final ring dip is "just the straw that breaks the camels back". Injuries just don't happen. Tissues break down when they are not loaded appropriately. They can either be a large trauma in one pin point event, or it can be because an accumulation of micro trauma over time. These are micro trauma injuries that manifest it self into a larger event.

Kudos to you, Diana! I think it would be a blast to judge at a competition, but I know you put in long days. Well done!

Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Cool article.. I have never delved into the depth of this. Great write up.

Long straps, killing yourself to keep up with the trend, survival of the fittest and injuries just part of the game.

With any sport PED's come in to play. HQ has busted several athletes over the years. Tendon strength/growth could come into play with juicing up the system faster than the body is ready. Not saying anything about the athletes that were injured. As Im rehabbing from foot and shoulder injuries myself.
