Midwest Sectional

Results: Midwestern Sectional

The first competition of the 2010 CrossFit Games season is complete! After a long weekend at CrossFit TNT, the final numbers are in. On Friday, 135 men and 70 women entered the arena vying for the opportunity to represent at the North Central Regional in Castle Rock, CO on April 30 - May 2, 2010.

After the dust settled on what proved to be two brutal WODs on Saturday, plus the final on Sunday, the top 30 men and women now prepare for Denver.

Rochelle Simmer (Event Organizer) summed the event up:

"The 2010 Midwestern Sectionals are over and CF TNT's box is empty. The last two weeks with Rochelle Simmer working over 15 hours a day for two weeks straight, Rochelle's fiancé Jeff, Sarah and Diane dedicating every second of their free time to make everything perfect, TNT was able to open their box which is brand new, and put together the first ever Sectionals.

With over 600 people, (athletes, staff, volunteers, spectators, sponsors and vendors) our box was packed with the crowd cheering, the athletes grunting and the music blaring! It was a rock concert with athletes. Read More"

Congratulations to all! Note: If you finished just outside the top 30, there is still a chance you might have a chance to compete in the Regionals. If any of these athletes are unable to compete in Denver, the next highest athletes will be invited up in their finishing order. This holds true all the way up to the start of the event.

jerry - before ripping a debate on whether or not you think standards were met during any of our sectional WODs, try not to make an accusation before knowing what the ROM standards were that the athletes were briefed and held accountable to.

any athlete at the midwestern sectionals, to include the top athletes at the end of the weekend, will all tell you they had plenty of reps not counted on account of not meeting the required ROM.

also - don't make an assumption that "extension" isn't being met based off a few quick video clips. every athlete was judged fairly and kept to an honest standard.

with that said - another awesome video - can't wait to see the women's division!

The box jump standards were enforced. I know that I personally missed at least 10-12 reps due to poor ROM. The judges were strict and fair across the board. A few short video clips are clearly not representative of the entire performance and each clip does not show the judges counting or correcting the athletes rep.

So, I see some cf'ers went to the Crash-B rowing meet and got smoked. What ever happened to Castro's bold statement that "The strength and value of CrossFit lies entirely within our domination of other athletes. This is a truth derived through competition, not debate."

Seems to me that has been proven bunk.

Some prefer chalk. Brian trains with baby oil.

Great weekend- many thanks to Rochelle and her crew of judges and volunteers who made the event run super smooth! Smooth like Brian's baby oil.

Congrats to ALL of the athletes who competed- participating in such an event is reason enough to be very proud.

I don't remember feeling like I needed to stretch my lats during my box jumps?? I don't know though, maybe I was doing them wrong... Brian, will you bring some extra oil with you to Denver? I'll try any trick in the book to get to Aromas! Videos were amazingly done! Can't wait to see the Womens' heats!

16. Cegon wrote...

Congrats Luke! It appears there was a glitch and you should have been announced as # 29. Great Job. See you in Denver.

18. Paul C wrote...

Roughly 3-4 hours between wod 1 and 2
