Re: 2011 Games Predictions

The signs I've seen point to the games being similar to last year: few if any monostructural events. Because of this I think Dan Baily and Rich Froning will be the guys coming out on top. Mikko might have a shot, but I don't think he'll be able to take the newer guys. I don't think Khalipa, Spealler, or Orlando have a realistic shot at the top, but you never know what will come out of the hat. Orlando might crush the competition when they get to the hammer throw.

As for women I think it would be shocking if anyone besides Kristen or Annie came out on top. As to which one . . . I still have to go with Kristen, though I think she and Annie will be close.

1. Rich Froning
2. Mikko Salo
3. Austin Malleolo
4. Dan Bailey
5. Graham Holmberg
6. Ben Smith

This was tough, lots of super tough guys this year.

1. Kristan Clever
2. Annie Thorisdottir
3. Camille

Big Annie fan, but hard to pick against Kristan until someone actually knocks her off.

Team
1. Crossfit New England

Don't really know enough about the teams other than to just pick a winner

Ben smith was 4th and won't be going to the competition.

And you don't think Froning will be ANYWHERE in the top 10? After last years performance, being 3rd in the open this year, and destroying everyone but Dan Bailey at regionals? I say no way. I think he and Dan Bailey will be strong contenders for the top spot and will take Spealler and Khalipa.

You must be thinking of someone else.

Ben Smith won the Mid Atlantic by 6 points.

Well I'm using a formula to determine the ranking based on their statistics available on the games site.
