How to Watch CrossFit Open 18.4 Announcement (Plus Current Leaderboard)

Only two weeks remain in the 2018 CrossFit Open, and we’re beginning to get a hint of the top competitors for the 2018 CrossFit season. With the conclusion of the ridiculously tough Open Workout 18.3, we’re now bracing ourselves for what 18.4 might entail.

The announcement for workout 18.4 will be streamed live tomorrow evening at 5 pm PST from CrossFit Fury in Goodyear, Arizona. If you tune in this week, you’ll get to watch CrossFit Games veterans Björgvin Karl Gudmundsson and Scott Panchik go head-to-head in the first 18.4 workout. Last year, Gudmundsson took home 5th at the Reebok CrossFit Games, while Panchik finished one spot behind him in sixth.

Current CrossFit Open Leaderboard

If you’re late to the party, workout 18.3’s leaderboard had plenty of score submission errors, and until late last night and early today, it was difficult to tell who actually placed well in the workout. We speculated that this was due to an English language barrier gap and a misunderstanding for record tie break scores.

For example, over 60 entries for the male individual open athletes had errors in them, which made seeing the true overall leaders tough because you couldn’t tell who actually completed the workout in the time cap. As of now, the leaderboard shows only four male athletes completing 18.3 under the 14-minute time cap, with no female athletes doing so.

Below we’ve included the current top 10 leaders from the individual open leaderboard after the first three 2018 CrossFit Open workouts. More and more familiar names are starting to rise to the top of the board.
