Buddy carries, heavy thrusters and pull-ups kick off the Affiliate competition.
The Affiliates opened the 2010 CrossFit Games action on Friday morning. Just like the individuals, the teams did not know what task lay ahead of them until an hour before Dave Castro counted them down.
The first event was a brutal test that required the whole team to perform well at 3 movements, 2 familiar and 1 most likely foreign.
Two rounds for time of:
70 thrusters (155/105 lb.)
50 chest-to-bar pull-ups
100 meter buddy carry
(12-minute time cap)
Teams were seeded according to their performance at Regionals. The final heat of the Affiliate competition consisted of the first place team from the worldwide competition. Some second place teams were also included, as well as the defending champions from last year.
Final heat teams: CrossFit Auckland (Australia), Ute CrossFit (Northwest), CrossFit Rebel SA (South Africa), CrossFit Cayman (South America), CrossFit Calgary (Canada), Northwest CrossFit (2009 CrossFit Games Champions), CrossFit Apex (Central East), CrossFit Delray Beach (Southeast), CrossFit Wilmington (Southeast), San Francisco CrossFit (Southwest), CrossFit Central (Southcentral), CrossFit Omaha (Northwest), CrossFit New England (Northeast), CrossFit Fort Vancouver (Northwest).
