How to Watch CrossFit Open 18.3 Announcement (Plus Current Leaderboard)

Brace yourselves, because the third week of the 2018 CrossFit Open is here and workout 18.3 is set to drop tonight. The announcement will be streamed live tonight at 8 pm EST from Skyline CrossFit in Houston, Texas. If you tune in tonight, you’ll get to watch multi-time CrossFit Games athletes Kyle Kasperbauer and Neal Maddox face off head-to-head. Last year, Kasperbauer took home first, while Maddox claimed second in the 2017 CrossFit Games 35-39 age group.

Last week’s 18.2 & 18.2a two-part workout involved a heavy strength focus (max clean), which was a complete 180 compared to workout 18.1’s endurance based 20-min AMRAP. It’s going to be interesting to see what Dave Castro has up his sleeve this week. If we had to guess, this week’s workout will involve some high-skill task, maybe gymnastics?

After two weeks of workouts, the leaderboard has shifted multiple times, especially after some 18.1 scores were disqualified. Check out the top ten male and female athletes after the first two CrossFit Open workouts in the individual Open age categories below.

In addition to placings, we’ve included the top five athletes in each category’s scores for the first two workouts, so you can see how you stack up to the current leaders!
