Interesting to see Khalipa ahead of Rich on this one...

Jason lewis is 1st in 15.1A, doing 396 on C&J and only 1 rep at 15.1. this looks ridiculous and a mockery of himself.

He paid his entry fee like everyone else. Anyway, a 396# C&J will get tons more girls than a bunch of T2Bs

The live announcement score is at a big disadvantage, I'm sure if Rich and Fraser redid the workout, they would come away with better scores

Is there a way to sort the leaderboard to see the top scores for just 15.1 or just 15.1a?

I think HQ hit this one out of the park.

They make it so it is a great all around test, and it pulls in guys and gals who might normally never do this for a shot at some $$ off a max c&j. We get to be the lucky ones and watch videos of people posting videos of them.

There are more people who will take notice of this because of the workout and other possible ones down the pipe.

In the end what is a few extra 2k$ for them for added people involvement and watching?

[QUOTE=Stephen Hrapsky;1249633]I've been looking around, and couldn't find any info on the custom leader board. Is it not working for 2015? I can't seem to get it to work correctly.[/QUOTE]

All I see on the custom leaderboard page is "Will be back soon." I don't know the story behind that....? The marketing before the Open said that you would be able to do a custom leaderboard with your friends, so I expect it to be working during the 2015 Open.

[QUOTE=Kendra Riggs;1249646]Is there a way to sort the leaderboard to see the top scores for just 15.1 or just 15.1a?[/QUOTE]

Click on the "SORT" dropdown list and change it to "OPEN WEEK 1" for top scores of 15.1 or "OPEN WEEK 1A" for top scores of 15.1a.

[QUOTE=Justin Lawler;1249594]So here's the question...do you get prize money for winning ALL of 15.1 (including 15.1A) or is there prize money for each 15.1 and 15.1A? Maybe someone with no shot at regionals stands around for 9minutes, and then hits an insane C+J, wins 15.1A, gets $2,015.[/QUOTE]

Here is what the rulebook says about prize money: "A cash prize of US$2,015.00 will be awarded for the top male and female score worldwide in each Open workout (weekly)."
The fact that they put the word "weekly" in there makes me believe that one prize for a combined 15.1 and 15.1a will be awarded. I doubt you can win prize money by doing 1 rep of 15.1 and killing 15.1a, as some on the leaderboard have done.

Says Rich is on Team Mayhem Freedom, I've heard of Hobart of course, but I'm not familiar with the other names on the list, does anyone have any info on them, and could they possibly be a contender this year with their current roster?

Leaderboard sorting by country isnt working for me.

Which is kinda a shame as it would be nice to compare to countrymen instead of region (for us, european)

I think we will see another 2 part workout later on in another week, but with the 2nd part being a skill test, rather than a strength test. Maybe something like max muscle ups in 2 minutes (or c2b or pull ups, depending on division). I sure hope so, because 1rm clean and jerk is not really fair for smaller and lighter athletes.
