European Regional Events Announced
A first look at what the European athletes are up against this weekend.
CrossFit Games action heads across the Atlantic Ocean this weekend. The following message comes from event organizer Mads Jacobsen.
It's almost time for the European Regionals. The event will be held at the Eleiko sport center in Halmstad, Sweden (link to map). The competition will determine which athletes Europe will send to the CrossFit Games Finals at the Home Depot Center in Los Angeles.
Event 1 & 2
Within a 15 minute timeframe the athletes need to complete a distance run. The athlete with the fastest time will be the winner of that event and receive the appropriate score.
Then the athlete will use the remaining time to perform as many overhead anyhows (70/50kg) as possible, until the 15 minutes have passed. The athlete who manages to move the weight from the ground to an established overhead position the most times will be declared the winner and receive the appropriate score.
The clock never stops during this two-in-one event! The faster the athlete is on the run, the more time the athlete will have to perform as many reps as possible.

The weight must remain in the overhead lock out position, while the partner performs his/her squats. Once the overhead lock out position is compromised the squats performed no longer count. Once the weight is again in the overhead lock out position the athlete may continue the squats.
