Day 1 of the 2017 CrossFit® Games South Regional is in the books and we’re halfway through the second day. Unlike the East Regionals, athletes at the top of both the women and men’s individual South leaderboard were much less predictable. With the exception of Camille Leblanc-Bazinet commanding the number one women’s individual spot, there’s much more variance in the top fives.
After the first day, top spot Camille Leblanc-Bazinet finished first in both events with 2016 Reebok CrossFit Games 11th place finisher Tennil Reed following close behind. Jessica Aelvoet, Games hopeful, is close behind in third, and took second in the second event of the first day beating Reed by 1-second. Aelvoet was positioned in first in the 2017 Open for the South region.

On the men’s side, veteran athletes Logan Collins, Travis Williams, and Dakota Rager are controlling the top three spots, while Tommy Vinas and Cooper Wise, Games hopefuls following closely behind. Other notable names from the CrossFit community that fall below the top five include Elijah Muhammed in sixth, and Jared Enderton in 13th.
Thankfully, we haven’t seen any reported injuries for the South Region, such as East Region’s top-ranked Alex Vigneault’s pec injury that came from practicing the ring-dips before event two.
