The 2019 Reebok CrossFit Games kicked off the second day of action in Madison, Wisconsin on Friday. Thursday showed no shortage of excitement, with big event wins, cruel cuts, and dominant team victories.
Every day we will provide an updated leaderboard with the individual cuts. On Thursday, the field of individual men and women was cut almost entirely in half. There were 148 men and 134 women at the start of the Reebok CrossFit Games, and on Friday the field was represented by just 50 men and 50 women.
The first event on Friday was the Ruck run, and both the men and women competed at the same time. Athletes ran 4 laps of a 1,500-m course, adding weight for each lap. Men and women used the same weight during this event. The time cap was 40 minutes. After the Ruck run, the individual field dropped to 40 men and 40 women.
The second individual event of the day was the Sprint Couplet which went on to cut the field down to 30 men and 30 women. The Sprint Couplet had a 6 minute time cap. It didn’t end there though, Mary was thrown in as the third and final individual event of the day. Mary cut the field to 20 athletes, and was 20 minutes of hand stand push-ups, single-leg squats, and pull-ups.

*CrossFit HQ announced on Saturday that there has been an adjustment to the men’s leaderboard. Joshua Wichtrup contested a judging error during the Event 6 Spring Couplet on Friday, and his appeal was granted by CrossFit HQ. This moved Wichtrup up to 26th place, and as a result bumped France’s Willy Georges down to 21st place in the overall standings. Casper Gammelmark moved up to 20th place and earned a spot in Day 3.
