Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

I've not heard the announcers mention it like they have in the past, are the athletes making money for individual events? I remember last year was something like $3,000 for first place in an event.

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

^^ nice!

looks like they updated the events page accordingly (20lb for men, 14lb for women)

And from Emily Abbott's instagram post above:

Is that official Steven, or just speculation?

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

Just to compare how far crossfit competitors have come...

check out the scores for the five 16/17 y.o. teen boys that just completed:

vs. 2010 Amanda (they are same reps / weights) --

I am also very impressed by those teens but there is a big bias here :
In 2010 Crossfit was geared toward strength and conditioning, with no emphasis on the olympic lifts. At the time the guys had already a big engine and a good level of strength but most of them were not very skilled for olympic lifts.

Remember the 2009 games ? 16 guys were able to clear quite easily the deadlift ladder (with a max weigth at 495 pounds), but only one of them was able to snatch over 225 pounds.

Now Crossfit includes a lot of emphasis on the olympic lifts, most crossfit games athletes could compete at a national level in olympic weightlifting.

Those days the teens practicing crossfit are also practicing a lot olympic weightlifting movements and are probably much more comfortable with squat snatches than most of the 2010 crossfit games athletes, it doesn't mean they are better than the Crossfit games athletes were in 2010.
