13.1 going down
Besides the Open being a chance to qualify individuals and teams for the Regionals (the next level of competition after the Open), have a great time, and for everyone to be able to participate in really challenging workouts, there’s also an inter-gym competition going on.
As I first wrote a couple weeks ago, we’re involved in a challenge involving Open bragging rights against our fellow CFers from the other side of the tunnel, CrossFit Sweat Shop.
The competition works like this: There are five workouts in the Open. The gym that wins three out of the five is crowned the overall champ.
The scoring system is as follows:
- 1 point awarded for each of the top 5 male and top 5 female scores under 40 years of age
- 1 point awarded for the top male and top female between 40 years old and 49 years old
- 1 point awarded for the top male and top female 50 years or older
If you’re following at home, that’s a total of 14 points. The team that wins the most points, wins the workout for that week. If teams end up tied 7-7, the tiebreaker goes to the team with the single best individual performance, male or female, regardless of age group.
Nabil (owner of CrossFit Sweat Shop) did a great job of writing up the results here. He even did color-coding. We ended up tied 7-7, with the tiebreaker going to us by virtue of Candace’s 183-rep performance. What a close contest!
Here’s how the scoring went (gym in parentheses):
Rikus Pretorious 170 (CFSS)
Scott Lipp 167 (CFSS)
Nabil Langkilde 158 (CFSS)
Justin McNulty 157 (CFO
Brandon Banks 157 (CFO)
Candace Hester 183 (CFO)
Michelle Mahler 177 (CFO)
Rene Garcia 169 (CFSS)
Tamara Holmes 169 (CFO)
Helen Langkilde 157 (CFSS)
Shane Gravitt 137
Leka Dobbs 150
Steve Pollini 180
Lones Stern-Banks 155
Strong work by all! Can’t wait to see what happens in 13.2!
