That would be pretty awesome - to see a more average CrossFitter next to the top athletes would really highlight just how good those top athletes are.

In 16.1 there will be two employees from Western Digital competing next to Chyna Cho and Emily Abbott:

The WD are included because they support CrossFit for their 2,000 employees. Kind of a cool way for CrossFit to show how a corporation uses CrossFit.

Since the first Open is at NorCal, I also suspect they'll do something special for Jason Khalipa and his daughter (who was recently diagnosed with leukemia).

I have faith that 16.3 is going to be the repeat. Sponsored by RX Smart Gear and Shawn R is sponsored by RX. That is my bet so far for the repeat.

Time to look for tickets to Colorado Springs

Immediately after 16.4 is announced, the reigning Fittest Woman on Earth, Katrin Davidsdottir, will face bronze medalist Sara Sigmundsdottir.

They say that no retest of any 2013 workouts have been done. Wonder if they start now? My money still on 15.3 retest.

My bold predictions for the 2016 Open:

TTB & OHS

DL & Bar Muscle Ups

A 2 part workout, where the 2nd part is max reps C2B in 1 minute.

16.5 = 14.5 +15.5: Rowing, thrusters, bar facing burpees.

This sounds like the worst workout in the entire world and I hate it already. It will probably take me an hour. Which means it's sure to happen. Let me just find my puke bucket...
