Open Workout 19.1

Thursday night/ Friday night, February the 22nd 2019, the first WOD of the CrossFit Games Open was released. Some woke up at night to check their phones but everyone was excited to see what’s going on.

And there it was: …

Workout 19.1

15min AMRAP

  • 19 WB
  • 19cal row

Men 20lb ball / 10 feed target
Women 14lb ball / 9 feet target

All details here.

Looks quite easy but it was a real sucker. 

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. 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 favorite times of the year, people are alive, they share their success, they suffer together, workout together, have fun together!

105 athletes registered for our two boxes! Not as much as last year but still amazing!

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

CFHQ seems to have some IT-troubles and so not everybody was able to submit a score.

Our top male Athlete, David Dieterle, aka DIDI, aka DIDI Sorglos, is sitting in the 48th place overall in Switzerland – congratulations to this outstanding performance!

On the female side, we have Lani Messner sitting in the outstanding 16th place overall in Switzerland! Keep pushing it to the limit Lani.

The Top 3 male at CrossFit Basel and CFBaselDowntown are:

Also congratulations to all the first timer, who did their first CrossFit Open Workout! You did great and I hope it was at least a little bit of fun.

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

Very close! YAY Burpees in first place with the best Spirit. Huge mutual support and the first Team with a mascot. In the following picture, it shows the emotional state after 19.1.

Do not forget, it is about to work out together and have FUN!

Let’s see what next! 19.2 is near.
