Nasty Nancy Event Breakdown

This remix of Nancy adds 100 meters to the run, increases the weight for overhead squats by 90lbs and 60lbs for men and women, respectively, and tosses in 15 burpees for good measure. 

5 rounds:

  • 500-meter run
  • 15 overhead squats
  • 15 bar-facing burpees

Women, 125 lbs / Men, 185 lbs

Freestanding Handstand Hold Event Leaders

Davíðsdóttir asserted herself as a contender by winning both events in block three — pretty easily at that. She won the handstand hold by 41 seconds over runner-up Kari Pearce. Noah Ohlsen won this event, but it was closer. He beat Fraser by only two seconds.

  3. Samuel Kwant, 1:32
  4. Jonne Koski, 1:27
  5. Adam Davidson, 1:24

Freestanding Handstand Hold Event Breakdown

We’ve seen handstand walks, handstand push-ups, and even handstand obstacle course races — but never a handstand hold for time. After completing Nasty Nancy (not to mention four events on Friday, Sept., 18), the athletes will see who can maintain a freestanding handstand the longest. Not only will the handstand hold test their shoulder strength, but also their thoracic stability, balance, and grit.

Time cap: 20 minutes

Awful Annie Event Leaders

The final event of stage one was undoubtedly one of the toughest. Men’s winner, Mat Fraser, won event seven by 16 seconds. And it was Tia-Clair Toomey who absolutely crushed Awful Annie. CrossFit HQ originally reported Kara Saunders as the winner of the event; it was later clarified that she finished Awful Annie in second place behind Toomey. Here are the top five women and men for event seven: 

Awful Annie — Top Five Women

  1. Tia-Clair Toomey, 8:01
  2. Kara Saunders, 8:54
  3. Brooke Wells, 9:10
  4. Haley Adams, 9:19
  5. Ragnheiður Sara Sigmundsdóttir, 9:28

Awful Annie — Top Five Women

  1. Mathew Fraser, 8:46
  2. Brent Fikowski, 9:02
  3. Jacob Heppner, 9:07
  4. Justin Medeiros, 9:09
  5. Samuel Cournoyer, 9:22

Awful Annie Workout Breakdown 

The first half of the workout has the athletes accumulate 150 reps each of double-unders, using a heavier rope with virtually no spin, and GHD sit-ups. After the competitors are thoroughly taxed, they’ll have to complete a descending 5-4-3-2-1 rep scheme of cleans with a relatively heavy load. Block four will be recorded between 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. in the athlete’s local time zone.

For time:

50-40-30-20-10

  • Double-under
  • GHD sit-up

5-4-3-2-1

  • Clean

Friday, September 18th — Day 1, Stage 1

Yesterday in the women’s division, Brooke Wells moved up from fifth place to second, Kara Saunders dropped to fourth, and both Amanda Barnhart and Dani Speegle made it into the top five after the last two events of day one. 

On the men’s side, American Noah Ohlsen captured the runner-up spot. However, Bayden Brown is just one point behind him in third. Jeffrey Adler moved up to 4th from 5th, and Jonne Koski joined the top five. Also of note: Canadian Patrick Vellner rocketed from 21st to 8th place after the last two events.

Friendly Fran Event Leaders

Barring Mat Fraser’s incredible 3:08 performance, which was 47 seconds faster than the Noah Ohlsen’s, most athletes were neck-and-neck. Tia-Clair Toomey won by nine seconds, and the other four men were separated only a few seconds. Bayden Brown and Scott Tetlow tied even, with a time of 3:58.

Friendly Fran — Top Five Women

  1. Tia-Clair Toomey, 3:40
  2. Kara Saunders, 3:49
  3. Brooke Wells, 4:28
  4. Kristine Best, 4:33
  5. Haley Adams, 4:36

Friendly Fran —  Top Five Men

  1. Mathew Fraser, 3:08
  2. Noah Ohlsen, 3:55
  3. Bayden Brown, 3:58
  4. Scott Tetlow, 3:58
  5. Jacob Heppner, 3:59

Friendly Fran Workout Breakdown

This remix of Fran has athletes doing three rounds of 21 reps of both thrusters and chest-to-bar pull-ups. Sound familiar? On paper, this workout is close to Fran, but as both CrossFit CEO Eric Roza and five-time Games veteran Dan Bailey have confirmed it’s a whole different animal. 

3 rounds:

  • 21 thrusters
  • 21 chest-to-bar pull-ups

Women, 85 lbs / Men, 115 lbs

Time cap: none

1-Rep-Max Front Squat Event Leaders

Toomey, who represented Australia in the 2016 Summer Olympics for Weightlifting, managed a 313 lb front squat to walk away with her second victory thus far. In the men’s division, Fraser was bumped down to fourth and Griffin Roelle won with a 490 lb lift. Tyler Christophel lifted 457 lbs, Justin Medeiros hit 437 lbs, and Fraser lifted 425 lbs. In fifth, was Chandler Smith, who front-squatted just a pound less than Fraser.

1-Rep-Max Front Squat — Top Five Women

  1. Tia-Clair Toomey, 313 lbs
  2. Laura Clifton, 302 lbs
  3. Kara Saunders, 294 lbs
  4. Dani Speegle, 293 lbs
  5. Amanda Barnhart, 291 lbs

1-Rep-Max Front Squat — Top Five Men

  1. Griffin Roelle, 490 lbs
  2. Tyler Christophel, 457 lbs
  3. Justin Medeiros, 437 lbs
  4. Mathew Fraser, 425 lbs
  5. Chandler Smith, 424 lbs

1-Rep-Max Front Squat Breakdown

This event is pretty straightforward. Athletes will have to work up to the heaviest front squat they can handle. The athletes can make as many or as few attempts as they want to reach a max within a 20-minute window.

Time cap: 20 minutes

Damn Diane Event Leaders

Mat Fraser won the first event handily, placed top five in the max front squat, and then dominated Damn Diane, leading runner-up Noah Ohlsen by 12 seconds. And Tia-Clair Toomey is out for blood — completing her 45 deficit deadlifts and 45 strict deficit handstand push-ups in just 2:28. (Though, Canadian Carol-Anne Reason-Thibault trailed her by only four seconds.) In an unfortunate turn of events, Laura Horvath failed to finish Damn Diane. If 45 reps per exercise seem tame, consider that the men and women dead-lifted a total tonnage of 14,175 lbs and 9,225 lbs, respectively. 

Damn Diane — Top Five Women

  1. Tia-Clair Toomey, 2:28
  2. Carol-Anne Reason-Thibault, 2:31
  3. Brooke Wells, 2:34
  4. Kari Pearce, 2:40
  5. Kristin Holte, 2:50

Damn Diane — Top Five Men

  1. Mathew Fraser, 2:44
  2. Noah Ohlsen, 2:56
  3. Jonne Koski, 3:29
  4. Samuel Cournoyer, 3:39
  5. Jay Crouch, 3:45

Damn Diane Workout Breakdown

To get block two started, the competitors will have to do three rounds of 15 deficit deadlifts and 15 strict deficit handstand push-ups. Damn Diane will test their strength and endurance before moving on to the fourth event of the day. 

1,000 Meter Row Event Leaders

Not one male athlete in the top five overall placed top five in the 1,000-meter row. It was Russian Roman Khrennikov, currently in 22nd place, who was top of the heap. He bested Mat Fraser by seven seconds. Karin Freyová, sitting in 14th overall, took home the women’s 1,000-meter row — which was extremely close. The difference between first and second place? 1.5 seconds. 

1,000 Meter Row — Top Five Women

  1. Karin Freyová, 3:15.80
  2. Amanda Barnhart, 3:17.40
  3. Dani Speegle, 3:18.10
  4. Katrín Tanja Davíðsdóttir, 3:20.60
  5. Brooke Wells, 3:21.10

  2. Khan Porter, 2:51.70
  3. Samuel Kwant, 2:53.30
  4. Travis Mayer, 2:54.10
  5. Brent Fikowski, 2:54.20

1,000 Meter Row Breakdown

The last event may seem simple, but it will push athletes to their absolute limits. After completing three utterly taxing events, competitors will compete to see who can row 1,000 meters the quickest

Time cap: none
