CrossFit Open Workout 18.4 Fastest Times (Plus Who Tops the Leaderboard)

Four weeks down, and one to go.

So far, the 2018 CrossFit Open workouts could best be described as a series of extreme ups and downs that have helped push a majority of CrossFit athletes to new levels. With the conclusion of CrossFit Open Workout 18.4, we wanted to highlight the fastest 18.4 workouts times, along with who’s sitting at the top of the leaderboard after four weeks.

After workout 18.3, athletes across the world wondered what 18.4 would entail, and if it would be a breath of fresh air. That breath of fresh air soon became relative when Dave Castro announced “Diane” combined with handstand walk + heavier deadlift couplet workout.

Generally, after week three you’ll begin to see familiar faces rise to the top of the leaderbaord and secure their position among the Open competitors. In a lot of cases, the Open is a good gauge for judging who’s going to excel at Regionals and where an athlete’s strengths lie.

This year is no different, and 2017 CrossFit Games Champion Mat Fraser is dominating the individual men’s open division, while Cassidy Lance-McWherter has been doing the same for the women’s.
