Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

Anyone else notice something was added wrong this morning? Ben smith was supposedly 4 points ahead before midline madness, then he finished 6th and fraser in 2nd and smith is now 8 points ahead of Fraser. They were all saying how Fraser was in first now but nope; I added the points up myself and it works out now. Must have been added wrong this morning on the leaderboard cause that doesn't make sense how he could place several spots lower and gain a lead.

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

Someone on reddit.com mentioned that the YouTube stream comments mentioned that they had not assessed the penalties associated with knocking down a hurdle on the sprint events until just now. Seems like a serious oversight at this point in the games.

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

The conspiracies are flying all over the youtube feed and on instagram comments both about the individual scoring ("Fraser is on Nike so they are penalizing him" is a popular one) as well as with the final work out for the teams (thinking that the solo format is a huge advantage for Mayhem, which it may be. I don't know).

I'm waiting to see if there is any kind of an announcement or explanation during the update show between events before I bust out my tinfoil hat.

Kidney issues stemming from Murph. Her medical team recommended the withdraw.

That's terrible. She wasn't herself in that event and hasn't been since.

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

IMO not good programming for the final events (especially the first one). Way too many people getting stuck of the first movement for it to be an exciting final event.

I'm all about introducing unknown movements, but when everyone gets stuck, it's just not exciting.

Women's heat 3, 2nd place was CAP+51. I managed to tie that score from my couch. ☺
