Jacob Heppner Trolls CrossFit Community With Insane Open Workout 20.1 Score

The craziest part is that Heppner didn't even break a sweat!

Few athletes compare to Jacob Heppner when it comes to stirring the pot in the CrossFit community. In one of Heppner’s recent YouTube videos he shares his absolutely incredible performance from CrossFit Open Workout 20.1. You know — the Open workout that has been causing CrossFit athletes everywhere to loathe burpees even more — yeah that one, and Heppner just performed it in world record setting fashion. 

Currently, Daniel Kamali of Spain holds the top spot for CrossFit Open Workout 20.1 with his score of 8:12, and USA’s Dillon Cravens is positioned in second with 8:53. Note, scores have not been confirmed by HQ yet and athletes have until 5 PM PT to submit their final results, so these two are subject to change. 

We’re not going to lie, 8:12 is good, but Heppner’s recent performance of 7:25 takes the cake for the top spot. What might be most impressive about Heppner’s performance is that every round he looks seemingly un-phased by the work and barely breaks a sweat — talk about a strong work economy, and that’s not even mentioning the fact that he also cleans the floor before in-between rounds. 

 

In Heppner’s YouTube video’s description he writes,

“For this performance I want to thank “Final Cut Pro” for allowing me to obtain my goals!!!! Funny part is I guarantee there are people in the Open that actually do this for real. Thats the sad part. Some people will say it isn’t real. To those haters….I would agree.”

Every year, it always seems like there’s at least one news story covering an altered or faked Open workout submission. Hopefully, we don’t have to cover any of those stories this year, but sadly, it always seem inevitable. Moral of the story, don’t fake scores. 

On a side note, Heppner has yet to submit his official score for CrossFit Open Workout 20.1, so we’re excited to see what he finishes the workout with. For the 2018 Open, Heppner brought home 2nd place in the United States and finished 3rd worldwide, so we’re expecting a score that’s probably not too far off his satirical video above.

Something I think everyone can always learn from “Don’t judge a 📖 by its cover” – if models can be photoshopped to look skinnier, then you best believe Reality TV shows can edit video to make someone look like an absolute villain. Hung out with @luke_parker777 for a few days and had an absolute blast getting to know him, and working out with him. Easily one of the most genuine Christian men I know, and I’d easily kick it with him as much as I could! . . 💥 Trolls please feel free to comment below about how much you hate this guy. I’ll proceed to ask you if you’ve actually hung out with him. But go on you can keep believing that Reality TV is soooo real (munching on Cheetos)… @bachelorusa

Heppner is a 4-time CrossFit Games athlete who missed the 2017 Games due to knee bursitis, and the 2018 Games due to not meeting a judging standard in CrossFit Open Workout 18.4.

However, last year, Heppner came back to the Games in a big way and took home 6th place, and if we had to guess, cracking the top five is of the utmost priority for him this year.
