WOW! What an incredible first workout of the 2022 Open! How did you like the endless box jump overs? Congrats to those of you who got your first wall walks, first heavy DB snatches and completed your first Open workout.
We always enjoy the Open vis a vis our Intramural Open in-gym competition. It's a great time to work together to encourage and support our gym-mates to do amazing things, to push a bit harder, to commit to being part of a team, and to test our fitness.
We have divided the gym into teams based on our median height. We had two weeks of pre-season during which we would earn valuable points for our teams by completing the Judges course and registering for the Open. Heading into the first workout on Friday Team Talls had a 14 point lead. Team Talls had 15 people register for The Open and 7 people complete the Judges course. Team Smalls had 11 people register for the Open and 5 people complete the Judges course.
Team Smalls made a HUGE surge with very strong finishes despite having fewer teammates complete the workout. Eighteen Team Talls completed the workout compared to 15 on Team Smalls. Team Small earned all those points by having more folks finish in the top 3 in all categories and by earning the Spirit of The Open (work 5 points.) At the end of 22.1 the teams are tied! It will be exciting to see how each team does this week!
