Review the workouts and schedule for the third day Morgen Chalk Up CrossFit Games Portal.
Ranking list, end of the second day
- Mathew Fraser – 875 | Tia-Clair Toomey – 770
- Jeffrey Adler – 440 | Katrin Davidsdottir – 480
- Samuel Kwant – 415 | Kari Pearce – 455
- Justin Medeiros – 395 | Haley Adams – 415
- Noah Ohlsen – 395 | Brooke Wells – 400
Event 6: Toes-to-Bar / Lunge, women’s department
- For the time:
- 30-20-10 repetitions
- Kettlebell Longe (Yards) (32 / 24kg)
- The keys to this event should be swift and unbroken and not make mistakes. The women came first and Tia-Clair Toomey tried to rebuild her point pillow after finishing fifth and third in the last two races on Friday.
- Toomey came out hot, caught her toes up to the bar, and cycled them quickly. Davidsdottir was first off the pull-up bar, but at: 40.3 with Toomey and Wells just 2 seconds behind.
- In the middle round, Toomey showed a strategy that would ultimately pay off if she placed her kettlebells right in front of her chin-up bar rather than near the lunge start line. This allowed her to get back on the rig faster, which allowed her to overtake Davidsdottir for the lead in the final round of 16.
- Toomey got off the pull-up bar one rep before Davidsdottir and took that momentum into the final lunges. Davidsdottir gave up the gas when it became clear that Toomey would cross the line first with a time of 3: 33.63 and jump back with 100 points from Friday afternoon. Davidsdottir finished second and because Adams was last he won a jump of 60 and overtook second place in the leaderboard.
Event 6: Toes-to-Bar / Lunge, men’s department
- In the men’s heat, Noah Ohlsen came out hot, doing 3 reps ahead of Fraser at the: 40 mark off the rig, with Fraser and Medeiros right on his heels.
- Ohlsen opened up a head start in the first 30 yards of lunges, but Fraser followed the same strategy as Toomey, dropping his kettlebells almost directly under his chin-up bar so he could quickly transition and start his set of 20 toes at the start of Bar just one rep behind Ohlsen instead of several. It is worth noting that Medeiros was the only other athlete who took advantage of this strategy.
- Ohlsen kept a slight lead over Fraser in the second row of lunges with Medeiros right behind. But after a slight stumble, Fraser passed the challenger and was the first on the rig to start the last set.
- Fraser opened a 2 reps lead on the pull-up bar, pedaling the last ten yards of lunges to take the event victory with a time of 3: 04.77. It was Fraser’s third win in a row and the 24th of his career. Ohlsen finished second, followed by Medeiros third.
Event 7: Snatch Speed Triple, Frauenabteilung
- For the time:
- 1 snatch at each bar
- Quarter finals:
5 athletes, 1 minute cap
W 145-150-155 lb.
M 225-235-245 lb.
4 athletes, 2-minute cap
W 160-165-170 lb.
M 245-255-265 lb.
- Last round:
3 athletes, 3-minute cap
W 175-180-185 lb.
M 265-275-285 lb.
- Tia-Clair Toomey with her Olympic background came as the obvious favorite in this event, although neither Davidsdottir, who is particularly good at speed events, nor Wells could be counted.
- In the quarterfinals, Toomey went through all three dumbbells, grabbed each one, and crossed the finish line in: 9:24 p.m. Wells seemed to run too slowly and had a three-way race to the finish with Davidsdottir and Pearce. Adams tried to lift the last bar and was eliminated.
- In the semifinals round, Toomey crossed through all three dumbbells again, despite switching to the second bar at 160 pounds. Wells accelerated the pace and did all of her exercises successfully, as did Davidsdottir. Pearce failed on her first attempt at the last bar and sealed the deal for her elimination.
- In the final lap the story was similar for Toomey, she handled all three lifts smoothly and drove to an event win with a time of: 30.06. Wells took a measured pace, successfully hitting their lifts and securing second place, while Davidsdottir missed the final bar once by 185 pounds before successfully completing the lift and finishing third.
- For Toomey, this was her second event win of the morning, expanding her lead and extending her record of total event wins to 21.
Event 7: Snatch Speed Triple, Herren Division
- When the men hit the competition floor, Fraser was again the favorite, but commentators noted that Jeffrey Adler had “called his shot” and declared that he would win the event.
- In the quarter-finals, Fraser raced through all three lifts with Adler right on his heels. The pair finished the round in: 21.04 and: 21.17. Ohlsen and Medeiros both failed on the last crossbar, but Ohlsen recovered faster and crossed the finish line to reach the semifinals while Medeiros was eliminated.
- In the semifinals, Fraser did another short work on all three lifts and ended with: 25.47. The other three athletes were all fighting on the last bar. Kwant and then Adler made it and crossed the finish line, leaving Ohlsen out of the final.
- Fraser’s run on the final lap wasn’t as clean, he failed once on the final barbell at 285 pounds, but recovered quickly and was able to hold back a persistent Jeffrey Adler who finished second. Samuel Kwant was third overall.
- The win was Fraser’s fourth straight win, which brought Toomey’s record to victory.
Event 8: Bike Repeater, women’s department
- For the time:
- 10 rounds
- 1 legless rope climb (15 feet)
- The keys to the bike repeater were the good handling of the bike in the turnarounds and transitions as well as the management of grip and fatigue when pulling the upper body.
- Katrin Davidsdottir quickly took the lead in the 3-2-1 go, but Tia-Clair Toomey took over in the second round.
- In the fourth round, Pearce and Adams were battling for second place as Toomey built a big lead while Brooke Wells appeared to be struggling and slowing down.
- By the back half of the race it was clear that no one could catch Toomey as she shot through her transitions and climbs. And on lap eight, Adams passed Pearce.
- Toomey finished the event win 17: 37.51, her third win in a row and the 22nd event win of her career. Adams finished second, Pearce third, Davidsdottir, who has struggled with legless rope climbing in the past, finished fourth. Wells was last done a little over a minute later.
Event 8: Bike Repeater, Herrenabteilung
- Justin Medeiros took an early lead on the first lap and showed skills on the bike and in the transitions. In the first half of the race he, Fraser and Ohlsen stood head to head.
- In the fifth lap, however, Ohlsen had fallen to fifth place at the bottom of the field.
- The race got hot over the last three laps. In the eighth lap, Adler sneaked up and overtook Medeiros on the bicycle loop. On the ninth lap he challenged Fraser on the bike and even overtook the leader for a moment at the end of the legless rope climb.
- Fraser leaned forward on his bike on the tenth and final lap, restrained Adler on the last stretch, and climbed. Fraser took the event victory with a time of 12: 54.76, Alder right behind with 12: 56.35.
- The win was Fraser’s fifth straight win and broke the record set by Tia-Clair Toomey yesterday. With another 100 points, Fraser started the finals of the day with a lead of 390 points over Jeffrey Adler and a lead of 395 points over Justin Medeiros.
Event 9: Happy Star, women’s section
- For the time:
- 200 to 300 meter mountain run
- 5-7-9-11 repetitions of:
W 95-105-110-115 lb.
M 135-145-155-165 lb.
- The athletes returned to the ranch for the final event on the second day. An interesting component that was only announced shortly before the start was the variable mountain runs. Instead of repeating a single lap, athletes had to start each lap with a different run.
- The women were first and the race got off to a quick and furious start when Brooke Wells started the first hill run. Tia-Clair Toomey stayed close, and after completing the first round of burpees over a beam 30 inches off the ground, Wells received no replay on her first engine.
- Toomey and Wells fought against it at breakneck speed in the second and third laps. Haley Adams stayed strong in third place in the third round but dropped back to fifth at the end of the fourth round.
- Wells tried to make a move on lap four and stormed up the hill, but Toomey stayed close and they both started the final 11 burpees at the same time. It soon became clear, however, that Wells had slowed down her pace and failed several iterations of the engine, falling back to single iterations by the end. Toomey crossed the line first at 8:42:59 a.m. and while Wells fought, Pearce and Davidsdottir finished the event in second and third.
- The event win gave Toomey a clean run for the day.
Event 9: Happy Star, men’s department
- A familiar story developed on the men’s side when Samuel Kwant took an early lead in the first hill run, but Fraser stayed close and took the lead on lap two as Medeiros moved into third place.
- Fraser accelerated the pace, built a sovereign lead on lap three at the end of the engines and was able to drive to a fourth and final event win of the day with a time of 8: 18.21.
- Kwant held off a late attack from Adler and the pair finished second and third, separated by 7 seconds. Ohlsen finished third, while Madeiros, who faded in the last mountain sprint, finished last.
- The event win gave Fraser six consecutive event wins and a clean run for the day. It also brought his career event win to Jan.
