NO BULL CrossFit Games Open 2021 // THE RECAP

It’s done ! Once again. The 2021 Open is history !  What a great three weeks. 

81 members of CrossFit Basel/Downtown participated, making CrossFit Basel the box with the second most registrations in the whole German-speaking area of Europe (including Germany and Austria). This is awesome !

The circumstances were definitely special, but we are extremely satisfied with how we managed to stage this great event together. As announced in advance, many went above and beyond, did double-unders, wall-walks, toes-to-bar, kipping pull-ups or chest-to-bar pull-ups for the first time, or achieved feats you didn’t think you could do. The Power of Community !

The Open 2021 ended with not one (!) but two (!) workouts: 21.3 and 21.4. These workouts combined our gymnastic and olympic weightlifting skills and pushed us to the limits one last time ! 

21.3

For total time:

15 front squats
30 toes-to-bars
15 thrusters
Then, rest 1 minute before continuing with:
15 front squats
30 chest-to-bar pull-ups
15 thrusters
Then, rest 1 minute before continuing with:
15 front squats 
30 bar muscle-ups
15 thrusters 

Workout 21.4 begins immediately upon completing or reaching the time cap for 21.3.   95 lb. for the front squats and thrusters. Time cap: 15 min.

21.4

Complete the following complex for max load:

1 deadlift
1 clean
1 hang clean
1 jerk

Time begins immediately following the completion of 21.3. Time cap: 7 min.

Well done to all and congratulations on your well-deserved success ! As expected, you showed up at each event, fight through the pain and supported each other. With this special outdoor open edition, we showed that we are able to adapt and to grow stronger together in any kind of situation. 

Now some numbers and final performance analysis:

For the 21.3 and 21.4

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

REMINDER:  This is how you can help your team score points:

1 point for showing up and posting a score online (no matter what category you compete).
5 points if all teammates earn an official score on the workout.
1-3 points per athlete that finishes in the top three in the box (male/female, 1st 3 points, 2nd 2 points, 3rd 1 point).
5 points for the team with the best spirit.
8 points (team) – Team Bonding: If your team gets together socially outside of the gym (ALL of you – pic posted on our FB page as proof)…you get points. This is a one time bonus, you can do it as many times as you like but it will only earn you points once. It can be done at any point during the three weeks.

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

Be ready for the last workout tomorrow ! It is coming …
