Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

you know you get a little excited for the open then they do the same stuff.. Sadly again knowable and non changing with 15.2 being 15.2. Atleast castro did not have a seriously smug I got a secret look and expression on his face.. just more of the same 365 days later. Well glad that I am lighter this year..

Just gotta get to the next round..

Here I was thinking that 14.5 would be the repeat. I do suspect that a "For time" wod will show up somewhere this year.

Scaling C2B down to chin-over-bar is not really that much easier. The people that needed to scale TTB down to knee raises probably can't do pull ups, either. Disappointed it's not jumping pull ups. There's still going to be thousands of women stuck at scores of 10 Rx or 6 Scaled.

Those thousands of people will have a year to work on them before next year's open.

If the C2Bs were first they'd have to take zeroes...

Very true Beth... considering T2B to knees above parallel is quite a difference.

They didn't really think about that in the scaled division! had they gone to jumping C2B or pull ups but kept the same starting point 10 reps for each it would have been fair and a little more of a challenge.

My wife is not in the Open but we fixed a scaled version of the scaled WOD so that she could do it. We used a light resistance band and she did strict pull ups.. she thought that was great.

Im sure CF HQ is aware of that and that they did it on purpose for whatever reason there is.

Watching the announcement from Dave Castro he was clear.. this will separate those that should be at the top of the leaderboard and those who should not and where they should be.

Quite fair I would say now after hearing that.

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

Last year during this WOD Brent Fikowski had his score dropped 50 reps, then 50 reps re-instated - what is the general consensus on snatch balancing during this WOD? http://games.crossfit.com/judge/14.292268

I think snatch balance is not allowed. OHS starts and finishes in full lockout overhead with hips and knees extended. The rules specifically allow for a snatch to count, but don't specifically allow snatch balance. I think cfhq should have specified the start and finish position of the OHS. I think sn balance is covered under the "uncommon movements" clause.

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

Is there something wrong with the leaderboard?

If someone has scaled for 15.1 & 15.2 they should be below someone that has scaled 15.1 and Rx 15.2 right?

Checked my own score and that did'nt seem to be the case.

I noticed a few other scores where they have Rx 15.1 and scaled 15.2 but they place higher than someone that has Rx both 15.1 and 15.2

Seems CFHQ have a little programming issue. Or have I totally lost my mind?
