2010 CrossFit Games Finals

Affiliate Cup Event 3

Final Affiliate workout of the day brings the heat.

After a cut, the remaining 48 affiliate teams were given a chipper.

Two rounds for time of:
Run 300 meters
15 jumps over 28” box
15 dumbbell squat cleans (45/25 lb.)
30 double-unders
15 push-ups (hand must release from floor)
15 GHD sit-ups
30 yard lunge

Perhaps the most interesting aspect was an innovative push-up standard that required athletes to raise their hands from the floor at the bottom of each rep. Gone are the days when judges have to decide if an athlete “went all the way down.”

With the temperature approaching 95 F, the teams hit the track again, and CrossFit Lions set the pace early with a best time of 18:58. Later, Games veterans Pat Barber and Tamaryn Venter helped CrossFit New Zealand record a fast time of 17:31, but R.A.W. Training topped that with 16:41.

In the final heat, the top boxes went at it, and CrossFit Invictus came out as the early leader but was passed by CrossFit Fort Vancouver during the technical parts of the workout. The team of Nathan Loren, Adam Neiffer, Jessica Core, Marie Rochat, Marissa Rodriguez and Ryan Smith finished in 16:16 to set the best time of the day and retain their overall lead. CrossFit New England crossed the line second in 17:31, followed shortly after by CrossFit Omaha in 17:43.

This concludes Saturday’s portion of the Affiliate Cup. Only 16 teams move on to the final day of the 2010 CrossFit Games.

Current standings after three events:
