First HQ will send out invitations for Regionals. Then, of the people who accept invitations, their scores will be removed from their Team. Then, the Teams will be re-ranked. Then, CFHQ sends another round of invitations for individuals and for teams.

I would be more than happy to see triple unders. Mostly because I can do them.

I am still very skeptical on the HS walking showing up. but who knows, I have no idea what those guys are thinking.

Hacks pack is back. Team competition seems to be heating up a bit...

I feel like one downside to the team competition is that it is 6 people instead of 4.thats a lot to focus on when you have a field full of teams. The invitational this year and the team series both had 4 person teams and seemed to work better

Athletes must accept their invitation by April 17, 2015 at 17:00 PT, or give up their Individual spot. Within this time frame, eligible Athletes
must declare whether they will compete as an Individual or as a Team member at the Regional competition; they must choose one
or the other. Upon completion of the invitation process, and no later than April 22, 2015 at 17:00 PT, final Individual Regional rosters
will be announced on the CrossFit Games website. During this process, the Team Leaderboard is unofficial and subject to change until
all Individual Athletes have completed the video review process and either accepted or rejected their invitation to compete at Regionals.

i. If a significant amount of invited Athletes choose not to compete as Individuals, CrossFit Inc. may, at its sole discretion, invite additional
Athletes in order of their Open finish.

ii. Athletes who accept the invitation to compete as Individuals at their Regional competition will have their contributing Open scores removed from their respective Teamís score. The Team Leaderboard will then be re-sorted and the top Teams in each Open Region
will be invited to compete at their respective Regional competition.

iii. Teams will be invited to their Regional in the following manner:
a. 10 Teams from Asia, Africa and Latin America Open Regions
b. 15 Teams from Canada West, Canada East and all U.S. Open Regions
c. 20 Teams from Australia and Europe Open Regions

iv. Teams may select four (4) men and four (4) women to their Regional roster.
a. Only Team members who competed for that Team during the Open are eligible for selection.
b. A Team member is required to have entered at least one valid score (prescribed or scaled) during the Open. That score is not
required to have contributed to the Teamís score.
c. During the Regionals, only three (3) men and three (3) women will be checked in on-site and permitted to compete. Alternates
will not be involved in any way in the registration process or competition at Regionals. The extra man and woman may be
used as alternates should a Team member be unexpectedly injured or forced to withdraw PRIOR to arriving at the Regional
competition.
d. Individual Regional Athletes who do not qualify for the Games are eligible to rejoin their Team roster and compete for that Team
at the Games (should that Team qualify for the Games) as long as the Individual Athlete meets all Team requirements.

Do teams have to decide their regional roster before or after the regional workouts are announced?

IIRC, last year, Teams had to decide on their regional roster before the regional workouts were announced.

Should be before.

I hope they don't put triple unders in. It's just more of the same in terms of the movement, there's not as much skill involved, either you can do them or you can't, not to mention they're hard as crap to judge.

Coming from a long-time jump roper, have them do alternating single-leg double unders, probably not many people who can do more than 10 unbroken. Or single unders for time, to see who will continue to do them with their feet together versus sprint-style speed roping.

Just been looking over the Open results

Each year there are more and more competitors but more and more questionable results

And this does affect the top athletes

Crossfit are absolutely raking it in from the Open

Just saw on Mitch Barnard's instagram that there are rumors of only reebok gear being allowed at regionals. Has anyone else heard or seen anything about this? If it's true it seems pretty absurd to require that, when regional competitors arent given the loads of free reebok gear like the games athletes are.
