WhatsApp Image 2017-02-25 at 17.40.59

Thursdaynight/ Fridaynight, February the 22th 2019, the first WOD of the CrossFit Games Open was released. Some woke up at night to check their phones. Everyone was excited to see what’s going on.

And there it was: …

Workout 19.2

  • 10 DB

Men 50lb dumbbell /24 inch box
Women 35lb dumbbell /20 inch box

All details here.

Looks quite easy but it was a real Sucker. 

With the Dumbbell Snatches also a new equipment and movement has been introduced.

I would like to quote Ramons‘ words about the Open:

One year ago I already wrote:

„First week down. The box is literally vibrating. Five weeks in which everyone is nervous and the air is full of tension.

I love the opens and I hate it as well. I love it, because people seem to be more alive. They want to achieve something – they have goals they want to reach, they compete against each other and training with equipment as weights and an amazon exercise ball really help them to fulfill this purpose. I love to see their smiles if they did much better than expected.

I also love to see their fear cause I know this experience will teach them a lesson in life as well.

I hate it (sarcasm right there ;)) because it is extremely time consuming and it’s hardly possible to get any other work done during these five weeks. Our team invests plenty of extra time and effort to make this happen for you!“

Well, this did not really change! It’s one of my favourite times of the year, people are alive, they share there success, they suffer together, workout together, have fun together!

120 athletes registered for our two boxes! Amazing!

After that nice suckfest the overall CFBS-Top-Ten-leaderboard looks like this:

The Team is currently sitting on place 81 in europe but we have to wait till the deadline is over. CFHQ seems to have big IT-troubles and they extended the period to submit your score. We’re still wondering how many Re- and Re-Redo’s happened…

But for now we have 7 Girls in the Top 20 in switzerland:

Alessia Joy Wälchli (first place!), Jana Sollberger, Sarah Mentzen, Aline Seebacher, Nora Jäggi, Jessica Preis, Katrin Luethy.

The Top 5 at CrossFit Basel and CFBaselDowntown are:

  • Alessia (11:41)
  • Jana (13:24)
  • Sarah (14:11)
  • Aline (14:15)
  • Nora (14:24)
  • Ramon Gysin (15:04)
  • Sascha Albini (15:06)
  • Joel Wächter (15:28)
  • Tom Schwander (16:13)
  • Benoit Luthy (16:16)

We want to give a special mention to our masters! There are 16 Masters from division 35-59 (!) which belong to the fittest Top 20!  Respekt!

F.ex. Sascha is on first place in the 40-44 years group and Jana (2.) and Katrin (4.) are Top 5 in the 35-39 division in Switzerland. Way to go!

Current standings of CrossFit Basel and CrossFit Basel Downtowns internal Open competition:

Very close! On the third place: The Bomb Squad with the best Spirit, marketing and merchandising.

The Bully-Buddies aka Team Tizi are second. Quietly hidden but successfull.

The DT Outlaws are at the top! Maybe also because of the power of the powerbelly himself? Anyway: Slothfit for life!

Let’s see what next! 17.2 is near.
