Thanks to Our Sponsors
Our sponsors, Nike and Gatorade, are pround to present Los Juegos CrossFit 2010 - Centro y Sur America Regionales (The Central & South American Regionals for the 2010 CrossFit Games). They will be providing all competitors with a welcome package, and complimentary Gatorade and water throughout the 2-day event. In addition, several local sponsors will be selling food and drink (including beer) to spectators and athletes. Finally, as a courtesy to all competitors, each CrossFit Affiliate sending competitors will have a designated "Team Locker Room" where their athletes may store their belongings and rest between events.

Recommended Packing List:

  • Umbrella and rain gear (the likelihood of rain at some point during the event is high)
  • Jump Rope (Individuals only - otherwise a standard jump rope will be provided to you)
  • Trail running shoes
  • Athletic tape
  • Yoga mat, pillows, blankets to rest between events

Scaling options are available for some events, but not all. Scaling an event automatically disqualifies a competitor (Individual or Team) from earning one of the Central & South American seeds to the 2010 CrossFit Games.

As stated earlier, the scoring for the Central & South American Regional will be based on the same scoring system used for the 2009 CrossFit Games. 1 point will be awarded for first place, two points will be awarded for second place, etc. In the event of a tie among Individuals, the tiebreaker will be the total number of repetitions in Event 3. And in the event of a tie among Teams, the tiebreaker will be the total number of Burpees in Event 1.

To answer a few questions I received via e-mail:

1. Snatches - the snatch for Individual Event 2 can be performed as a full (squat) snatch or power snatch) . The key is that the bar must not stop anywhere along the way to the overhead position.

2. Handstand Push-ups - for Team Event 2 each athlete on the team must complete a single Handstand Push-up as required.

3. Push-ups - Kipping push-ups are allowed, however, after reviewing the video of the kipping push-up on CF main site, the Judges remind athletes that they must lock out their elbows in the top position. The Judges are concerned that athletes performing kipping push-ups may not lock out the elbows due to the speed of the movement.

4. Pull-ups - Kipping pull-ups of all varieties are allowed: standard kip, frog kick and butterfly. The key is not the style of pull-up, but achieving the required range of motion.

As more questions come in, I will reply and post them here as well for all to see.

Some more questions & answers:

5. Team Event 1 - each athlete must remain on the rower until they complete their 500m. They may row as fast or slow as they wish, but must complete their 500m before starting/restarting Burpees.

6. Team Event 2 - the Overhead Squat must be initiated from the ground, meaning the athletes must perform a clean and jerk, snatch, etc. to get the barbell into an overhead position. No assistance from teammates is allowed other than changing the weights.

7. Team Event 3 - the run is approximately 900m in total including both the uphill and downhill portions. The trail will be marked with Nike Race Tape.
