Friday Results

Two events were scheduled for Friday, with the second event — Up and Over — being announced only hours before it began.

Event Six — The Capitol

The Capitol was one of the few events performed without a time limit, meaning each athlete’s grit and mental toughness was challenged as much as their body. This event began with 20 Pig flips (a specialized implement weighing 350 to 510 pounds), followed immediately by a 3.5-mile run towards the Wisconsin State Capitol building.

Athletes will then carry two 70 to 100-pound Jerry bags 200 meters before switching to a 150 to 200-pound Husafell sandbag carry for 200 meters. The last leg of the final carry included an ascent up 49 steps towards the building’s entrance.

Interestingly, this was scored as two separate 100-point events. The first Shuttle to Overhead workout (A) score was calculated from the athlete’s total time to complete the three runs. The second Shuttle to Overhead workout (B) was dependent on the total number of jerks completed across the three rounds.

Wednesday Results

Wednesday, Aug. 3 marked the first day of the Games; only Individuals and Teams competed. There were three events scheduled.

Event One Results — “Bike to Work”

Toomey, who is the five-time defending champ, was the favorite going into the event. She got second (and 96 points), and it was American Haley Adams who came with with the win — finishing three seconds faster than Toomey. This was Adams’ first career event win at the CrossFit Games.

After the event’s completion, judges took an opportunity to review several questionable performances and adjusted the standing accordingly.

Event Three — Skill Speed Medley

The Skill Speed Medley was a series of three rounds of progressively more challenging combinations of pegboard climbing, jump rope, pistol squats, and handstand walks. Each round had a three-minute time limit.

The first round required athletes to climb a pegboard, perform 75 unbroken reps of jump rope, perform 10 unbroken pistol squats with each leg, and end with a handstand walk. The 20 best performers moved on to the second round which called for a more strict pegboard climb, 50 unbroken jump rope double-unders, 10 unbroken pistol squats per leg, and a handstand walk beginning with a pirouette spin.

The competitors with the five best times progressed to the final round: a strict pegboard climb, 50 unbroken jump rope double-unders with a hand crossover, 10 unbroken pistol squats per leg, and a a handstand walk beginning with an L-sit on parallel bars.
