looks like Team Murph.. but who really knows?

I think that Murph is going to give bragging rights within the elit. A 2min Fran or1min grace is not that impressive anymore but a 30min Murph in the heat... Now we're talking.

This is the only way to take CF to the next level and it showed last year.

I don't think competitors or teams will sandbag it, maybe pace it better and not burn out, but no one will sandbag a hero workout as a sign of respect.

I think it time for team murph

30 min un partitioned Murph with the vest. I would love to see that one. Breaking 40 min is a feat into its self. Plus the judges are more harsh on the standards than we are finishing 298…299 and 300 air squats with the vest.

Any update on Briggs?

Besides Murph.. nothing announced. I think last year at this time we knew more?

Castro put up Team Event 3 & 4 on his Instagram. 21-15-19 Deadlifts and Burpees w/ 100ft handstand walk between rounds.

Hopefully we'll hear more in the next couple days!

Individual Event 11: 280 ft. handstand walk for time.

I'm sure their shoulders will be feeling great after 10 previous WODs :)

How fast do you think a top athlete can do 280' on their hands?

I hope they do the handstand walk in the soccer stadium. I'd love to see someone go unbroken. If they do it in the tennis stadium with lanes and built in rest, it's not as interesting.

280' such random… depending how they do it I would say 70-90 seconds.

I would be sad if Sam Briggs cannot come for the US.
Such a wonderful athlete, her capacity to perform especially in the longest event is just insane.

The Murph won't probably be such a killer this year, we can be sure the athletes are more prepared for longer events and for heat this year.

But we can be sure at leat a couple of events will surprise everyone and move the rankings a lot.
