Re: 2018 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

I think any of the equipment used - rowers, ergs and so on can break or malfunction as long as they have a plan on how to not affect the athletes that much is vital.

Re: 2018 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Very true, Cole Sager moved his heal and got a no rep


Maybe nerves for the judges at the start.

Re: 2018 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Testing the bottom 2/3rds would be flushing the system. This means you as an individual are going to be tested thus are you willing to take the risk?

I only wish they tested all those that qualified...

Re: 2018 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Just the tip of the iceberg Vic. Imagine how many PED users there are in local or other competitions that never get caught as they are never tested.

Re: 2018 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

I forgot all about Noah... now if he can use his head a bit more and plan the workouts better rather than blowing out as he did towards the end. This stopped him placing top 3.

Re: 2018 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Cole Sager will place high this year I think. Based on his improvement last year I can see him being closer to the top 5.

I also think Iceland will be back in the womenís side, I am hoping for Sara.

Re: 2018 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Looking at how difficult it is to bring the best of the best to the games i don't think they are going to leave this to chance, so i believe this will be a seperator again. HSPU will split at all...

Someone at CFHQ has paid attention to the comments because the bad scores are gone from the top of the leaderboard.

Re: 2018 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

I hope he keeps his word because this will make it exciting and mess with our heads.

Maybe bench press, squats, AAB, rope climbs... whatever it will be the judges must know how to judge the movement.

Re: 2018 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

I hope this is not a rematch of 17.1 that would be boring, on the other hand that would get rid of the repeats for 2018 and we know we would have 4 new WODs the remaining time.
