At this time we can conclude that he's nothing as prescribed. All the dots lead to cheating. Watched some of his instagram videos of him doing one rep of something then saying that was 1 of 50 reps.. hard to believe coming out of a 44 year old.

This is going to be like a grey cloud over his head for ever within CF...

I posted on his IG account that he should have put up legit real videos of him doing the actual online qualifier WODs to put himself out there. Maybe the reality is that he really cannot do CF ? At any rate I have no idea what the deal is with him nor do I care. One of buddies here locally was sitting in 44th after the Open I wanna see how close he gets. I figure if I can get healthy for 2018 I might be able to crack top 100 worldwide (40-44)

Interesting thing I noticed about athletes on the bubble....

I follow Nick Fory's progress, as I used to work out at his gym. In the Central East region, he did not qualify for Regionals. He placed 22nd, and the cut off is 20 spots. However, in the combined regional he has accepted his invite to Regionals. Is this because scores are compared to other regions and he outperformed top 20 men in other regions? Or is it because some of the top 40 accepted team spots, opening spots for more individual competitors?

There are 47 men listed for the Central Regionals. Six have are competing with a team, one declined, leaving 40 for individual competition.

Graham Holmberg is in the same boat - didn't qualify in his region alone (24th place), but with a combined Regionals, he'll be in the competition.

I'm seeing a lot of new names ranking very well in every region.

Out of the Central Region, 6 went team and 1 declined. So they asked 7 more. Holmberg was 1 of those 7.

Not sure what happened to the 23rd guy from North Central. Maybe they he declined or went team and they didn't bother putting him on the leaderboard.

Because some went team. All 3 of Mayhems guys qualified top 20 but obviously declined to go team. When someone declines or declares team they invite the next person on the list

Anyone know been through the process to get your 1 free affiliate owner ticket into regionals?

I don't want to drive all the way there and not have a ticket waiting...

How do you feel about the first 2 regional workouts?

[url]https://games.crossfit.com/workouts/regionals/2017[/url]

Kinda long on #1.

All out blitz on #2 and will bet semi heavy for these guys and gals with the 80/55#.

Will be cool to watch them go at it.
