We are one day away from the fourth workout for the 2019 CrossFit Open, which means we’re nearing the end of the road. This year’s Open has been one of the most pivotal and talked about Opens that we’ve seen from the sport of CrossFit for quite some time. As opposed to previous years, the year’s Open is serving as the main qualifier for CrossFit Games bound athletes, as CrossFit Regional competitions are no more.
After the conclusion of the 2019 CrossFit Open, the top 20 individual male and female athletes will qualify for the CrossFit Games. In addition, the top male and female athletes from every country with an affiliate in good standing with CrossFit HQ will also receive invitations. This means that there will be more athletes at the 2019 CrossFit Games than we’ve ever seen before.
With a majority of the CrossFit Open 19.3 scores being in, we wanted to highlight who is topping the Open leaderboard after three weeks. There are a handful of new faces at the top, but as the weeks have gone by familiar faces are quickly climbing to the top. Note, this leaderboard is not official and could be subject to change with the progression of the Open and further validation of scores.
2019 CrossFit Open Leaders After 19.3

- Jean-Simon Roy-Lemaire — 35 points
- Bjorgvin Karl Gudmundsson — 58 points
- Leftaris Theofanidis — 61 points
- Mat Fraser — 65 points

Top 5 Women

What Will CrossFit Open Workout 19.4 Bring?
As the weeks go on, it’s going to be interesting to see who comes out on top at Sanctional competitions and the Open. Remember, if an athlete receives an invite and accepts it through a Sanctional competition and also tops the Open leaderboard, then the next athlete in line on the Open leaderboard will receive the invite. All that being said, there’s going to be a lot to take in once the 2019 CrossFit Open is officially over.
Now for the burning question — What will CrossFit Open Workout 19.4 entail?
