2011 Reebok CrossFit Games - Day 3

Jason driving the sled home during the last event, finishing overall in 7th place!

We spent most of Day 3 of the CrossFit Games watching all of the final events.  It was intense!  We also managed to enter a couple more mini contests at Vendor Village.   

Individual WOD7: Dog-Sled.  For time:
Three rounds:
  • 30 Double-Unders
  • 10 Overhead Squat 135#/95#
Three rounds:
  • 10 Handstand Push-Ups
  • 40ft Sled Push sled+385#/275#

2. Men on the DUs.


3. Final ladies heat on the OHS.


4. Jason on the handstand push-ups.


5. Annie Sakamoto pushing the sled at 116#!  Some of the female competitors had a very hard time doing this.


6. Camille and Annie finishing the event.  One of my favorite events to watch.


7. Spirit of the Games winner, Annie Sakamoto, thanking her judge.


Final Team WOD: Team Girls.  For time: "Elizabeth", "Fran", "Isabel", "Grace", "Diane", and "Karen"

8. The final team event relay.


A great event to watch!  Congratulations to CrossFit New England for winning the event!  I loved how the teams that did not finish the WOD within the time cap kept going.  Their dedication to completing the WOD along with the crowd's enthusiasm was amazing to witness and be a part of.

Break before the final events: After lunch, on our way to vendor village, Ana and I stopped at the master's arena since we saw people playing with the rings.  I was able to get a muscle-up in before the volunteers kicked everyone out to disassemble the equipment.  We then walked around vendor village one last time to see if we could get any good deals on things.  We stopped at the GymnasticWOD's booth so I can enter the frog hold contest and the Marine's booth for the pull-up hang contest.

9. Muscle-up in the master area.


10. Frog hold contest at Gymnastic WOD.  Yes, yoga!


11. Yayyy!  My time was good for second place!


12. Marines Pull-UpHang Challenge.  I held it 5s short of winning the top prize =/.  

Individual WOD8: The End 1.  3min AMRAP:
  • 20 calorie Row
  • 30 Wall Ball Shots 20#/14# at 10ft target

  • 30 Burpees

This was a long final event and probably one of the tougher workouts at the games.  Event 8, 9, and 10 were separated by 1 and 2 minutes, respectfully.  The wall ball shots were rough on the shorter ladies since they were to a 10ft target.

The last event had us all on the edge of our seats!  My favorite part to watch was when the competitors pulled the sled.  Everyone was on their feet at this point!


18. Ladies on the shoulder-to-overhead.

19. The amazing Annie Sakamoto for the finish!  Inspirational.

20. Jason on the sled pull.


21. After doing 3 WODs.


22. The fittest woman on earth, Annie Thorisdottir, getting interviewed by Miranda.


I wish we could have stayed for the closing ceremony, but we had to hit the road as we all had work the next day.  The games weekend was definitely one of my best weekends this summer.  Watching some of the most fittest people in the world compete was so inspiring and motivating.  Congratulations to Annie Thorisdottir and Rich Froning Jr. for winning the games, Annie Sakamoto for winning Spirit of the Games, Jason for placing 7th overall, and to everyone who competed!

The CrossFit community is so strong and supportive and I am proud to be a part of it.  Or to put it another way, I officially feel like I am part of a cult now as I came home with a bunch of CrossFit-related merchandise: more than 2 weeks of workout tops, wristbands, various accessories, lifting shoes, a jump rope, med ball, and  a 1.5pood KB.  I wish I knew that all the competition equipment go on sale after the games.  Next year I am totally driving my SUV down there!


23. Jason and I after the final event.
