Can the murph be performed "as they like as long as they do the required number of reps" or they need to follow its structure, first run, 100 pullups, 200 pushup, 300 squats and another run?

Anyone know how many of the competitors (Including masters) are actually affiliate owners?

Being able to put 100% of their time into CF and having an income to support it is not easy for those that have a normal day job!

Just curious :)

I suppose you could look at each competitor's games profile page, and if there is no clear answer follow them on twitter or facebook and find out what their occupation is. After that, it is just some simple math, and you can post the answer for us all.

I was hoping someone had already looked at this and had the information :D

I don't use twitter/facebook/instagram and other media, don't have the time or interest :yikes:

45+ mens last year top 3 were owners. This year the same.. as far as overall I don't know. But I am sure that most have jobs that give them time to workout out or they put it in their busy schedule. Sometimes I hear their story and its like mine.. Crossfit is the passion and we have people around us to share in that healthy passion.

I think that Injuries are the big element in the Masters. I had a good 6 months in pain this year with a bad back and 5 months last year to a wrist injury.
Everyone in the 45+ has issues training with the kids.

if they allow hand protection, then use hand protection.
you're still gonna need them (your hands) the rest of the week and it makes no sense risking tears when it is so preventable.

Is there any way to go back and watch early heats during the live coverage? Or go back and watch the team's first event of the day, rewind does not seem to be an option on the live stream.

Now that's teamwork!

(looks like she hurt her back on one of the deadlifts and hobbled to the subsequent muscleups; and finally had to be carried back to the finish line after their set)
