Headcoach Ramon Gysin about this week of competition:

‚WOW. Muscle Ups as a first movement in a WOD during the Opens. What a nightmare. That is so mean. Blabla. No, this is not mean. This is CrossFit. It’s a challenge. Face the challenge. Have no Muscle Up? You have one year to work on it. And you know what? THIS is fair. YOU have one year to learn that skill. If you really want it, you will have your Muscle Up by next years Games Open. Here’s a detailed analysis and description of how many people managed their first Muscle Up within this years Games Open.

Back to our performance:

I am pretty proud of our girls – they did a fantastic job and overcame their fear of doing Muscle Ups. We had a bunch of girls who managed to absolve several rounds. Fantastic. Unfortunately, the guys weren’t able to keep up this time. For the teams, it would have been so important to have guys coming into the third or even forth round with Wall Balls and Double Unders.

Rank 42 in this WOD allows us to stay overall on rank 35. Everything is possible but we have to perform extremely well in the last two WOD’s. We will do!!‘
