2010 CrossFit Games Finals

Women's Individual Event 2

Report and results from the first event of the day.

Day 2 of the 2010 CrossFit Games began at 7 a.m. with the announcement of the second event: a modified Helen that might be described as “Hell-In”

If last night’s event was a sprint for some, the first event of Day 2 was to be a marathon:

Run 1,200 meters
63 kettlebell swings (1.5/1 pood)
36 pull-ups
Run 800 meters
42 kettlebell swings
24 pull-ups
Run 400 meters
21 kettlebell swings
12 pull-ups

If that wasn’t enough, athletes had 90 seconds at the end of the workout to establish a 1RM shoulders-to-overhead lift.

The competitors were also told they would all do a minimum of four workouts total on the weekend.

Samantha Briggs of the United Kingdom set the pace in Heat 2, and her 18:30 stood until a truly epic Heat 3 duel between Kristan Clever and Annie Thorisdottir. The pair found themselves going head-to-head in the kettlebell swings in the second round, and while Annie broke first at the halfway point, she made up the time and finished first in 17:52. Clever was second in 18:23, and Briggs’ time stood up for third.

Clever, however, owned the overhead portion of the two-part event with a behind-the-head jerk of 205 lb. Jessica Pamanian was second (195 lb.), and Julie Foucher was third.

Camille Leblanc-Bazinet, who finished second in Event 1 last night, was sixth in the multi-Helen but tied for 29th in Event 2b.

“I’m happy with last night and the first part today, but I was not able to take the weight off the floor on the jerk, so I was disappointed,” she said “I was like, ‘are you kidding?’”

Leblanc-Bazinet was looking for a jerk of 155 but had to settle with 125 after being to exhausted to clean the weight back to the rack.

Elyse Umeda was 13th in multi-Helen and felt that the run portion of the Southwest Regional prepared her for the track at the HDC.

“We figured it would be around a 20-minute WOD at least. It went pretty well as we planned it,” she said. Her time was 21:25.

The men are currently on the track.

Worst scoring in the history of crossfit. How is a DNF worth fewer points than a completed event? And how is the scoring not the same for events? Just doesn't make sense.

Did the Games live server just go down for anyone else?

How the F can someone who didn't finish a WOD (Annie) be ahead of someone who did (Julie)????? That is SO NOT FAIR.
