Ce week-end des 8 et 9 mai, se tenaient les qualifications européennes pour les Crossfit Games, en Suède. Au programme de cette première journée du samedi, trois compétitions :

Events 1 & 2 :

Within a 15 minute timeframe the athletes need to complete a distance run. The athlete with the fastest time will be the winner of that event and receive the appropriate score.

Then the athlete will use the remaining time to perform as many overhead anyhows (70/50kg) as possible, until the 15 minutes have passed. The athlete who manages to move the weight from the ground to an established overhead position the most times will be declared the winner and receive the appropriate score.

The clock never stops during this two-in-one event!  The faster the athlete is on the run, the more time the athlete will have  to perform as many reps as possible.

Event 3 :

20 Chest-to-Bar Pull-ups
20 Box Jumps
20 Toes-to-Bar
100m overhead carry (80/60kg)
20 Toes-to-Bar
20 Box Jumps
20 Chest-to-Bar Pull-ups

Richard Vanmeerbeek, dont nous vous avions déjà parlé ici, lorsqu’il avait remporté les qualifications pour le sud de l’Europe, s’est à nouveau classé dans le groupe de tête, puisqu’il est actuellement en 4ème position !
