Well, the dust has finally settled on the 2017 CrossFit Games Open, and it was a doozy. This was my 7th year competing in the open, and it was just as challenging as the first. For many of you, this was your first year competing. No matter how long you do this, the Open will always show that you have something(s) to work on, and, hopefully, motivate you to get better.
The question is, “Who won the Battle of the Sexes?” After Week 3, the men were down 2-1 and needed to win the last 2 workouts. AND… that’s exactly what happened!!! The women made it close, they just didn’t get enough participation to win. TWO more scores, and they would have won Week 5 and the whole shebang! Something to keep in mind for next year.
Congratulations to everyone on an amazing 5 weeks. Time to get ready for next year! It’s only 47 training weeks away!
