How Did Athletes Rank in the Two Workouts Performed in All 10 2022 CrossFit Semifinals?

Here are the full rankings of the two workouts that were performed in each CrossFit Semifinal.

All 10 of the 2022 CrossFit Semifinal contests are complete. While there is still the virtual Last-Chance Qualifier to come on June 29 through July 1, 2022, for athletes who narrowly missed earning a qualification at their respective Semifinal, most of the 2022 NOBULL CrossFit Games roster is established. 

Two of the six workouts at each Semifinal were the same across all 10 Semifinal contests. Typically, Semifinal workouts are programmed by the event’s organizer. However, in 2022, two of the six workouts were programmed by CrossFit HQ were performed at all 10 Semifinals to have more comparable results across competitions since they all filter top athletes to the 2022 Games. The mutual workouts were:

2014 Regional Event 5

10 rounds for time:

Time cap: 11 minutes

Barbell Complex

Three attempts for max load of:

Below are the full results of the mutual workouts, comparing all athletes against each other. Of course, this is not a directly equal comparison as the mutual workouts were not performed in the same order at each Semifinal. Additionally, the other four workouts at each Semifinal had unique physical demands that varied and could have impacted performances in the mutual workouts.

2022 CrossFit Semifinals — 2014 Regional Event 5 | Results

Below are the Men’s results across all 2022 Semifinals with at least the top three athletes from each Semifinal.

Individual Men

  1. William Leahy IV | MACC — 2:33.30
  2. Arthur Semenov | Far East Throwdown — 2:36
  3. Jeffrey Adler | Atlas Games — 2:44.38
  4. Spencer Arey | Syndicate Crown — 2:45.00
  5. Roman Khrennikov | Far East Throwdown — 2:47
  6. James Sprague | Syndicate Crown — 2:47.63
  7. Saxon Panchik | MACC — 2:47.92
  8. Henrik Haapaleinen | Strength in Depth — 2:48.48
  9. Ricky Garard | Torian Pro — 2:49.04
  10. Rafael Sancen | Syndicate Crown — 2:49.20
  11. Dallin Pepper | MACC — 2:50.15
  12. Lazar Đukić | Lowlands Throwdown — 2:50.59
  13. Michael Smith | Lowlands Throwdown — 2:51.63
  14. Anthony Haynes | Far East Throwdown — 2:52
  15. Luka Đukić | Lowlands Throwdown — 2:52.02
  16. Willy Georges | Strength in Depth — 2:52.14
  17. Patrick Vellner | Atlas Games — 2:53.21
  18. Kristóf Horváth | Strength in Depth — 2:53.72
  19. Jay Crouch | Torian Pro — 2:55.92
  20. Bayley Martin | Torian Pro — 2:57.57
  21. Matt Dlugos | Granite Games — 2:59.65
  22. Nycolas Joyal | Atlas Games — 3:00.20
  23. Robert Heuer | Fittest In Cape Town — 3:02
  24. Estian Ferreira | Fittest In Cape Town — 3:04
  25. Jason Smith | Fittest In Cape Town — 3:06

  28. Esteban Ospina | Copa Sur — 3:21
  29. Kalyan Souza | Copa Sur — 3:22
  30. Guilherme Malheiros | Copa Sur — 3:24

The spread of results makes it clear which Semifinals were the most competitive for this contest when overlooking the previously-ranked extraneous variables. Copa Sur’s times were the slowest across all 10 Semifinals, and those from the Granite Games and Fittest In Cape Town weren’t much stronger. The spread at the top is a mishmash of Syndicate Crown, MACC, and Far East Throwdown with Adler’s time from Atlas Games thrown in.

Below are the Women’s results across all 2022 Semifinals with at least the top three athletes from each Semifinal.

Individual Women

  1. Kristi Eramo O’Connell | Syndicate Crown — 3:21.28

The Granite Games and Atlas Games were mainly in the middle of the pack.

  33. Roja Hashemi | Far East Throwdown — 205 pounds

The Far East Throwdown and Fittest In Cape Town were not calling for as heavy weight on the barbell as in the Syndicate Crown or Torian Pro. The Granite Games were towards the top of the leaderboard but mostly clustered together right before the teens.

The Atlas Games, Granite Games, Syndicate Crown, Lowlands Throwdown, Far East Throwdown, Strength in Depth, Copa Sur, Fittest In Cape Town, MACC, and Torian Pro results leaderboards have been finalized. The Last Chance Qualifier will complete the roster for the 2022 CrossFit Games, scheduled to take place in Madison, WI, from Aug. 3-7, 2022.
