My 5th CrossFit Open is in the books. It didn’t go how I hoped it would, but not bad overall. Slight drop for 2016 after breaking into the top 10% last year. A shoulder injury limited me to singles on the chest-to-bar pull-ups in 16.1 as well as the bar muscle-ups in 16.3, otherwise my ranking may have been pretty close to last year.
- 2016 – 19,127th out of 166,846* (top 11.5%)
- 2015 – 13,195th out of 141,884 (9.3%)
- 2014 – 13,737th out of 80,281 (17.1%)
- 2013 – 9,251st out of 46,227 (20%)
- 2012 – 16,389th out of 22,174 (73.9%)
With Dave Castro mentioning they might introduce a 35-39 Masters division next year, it’s neat to see how I would compare. Far far away from the top 200 that get to compete in the Masters Qualifier after the Open, but I’ll take top 6.5% (1,981st out of 30,327).
*Each year I compare my place to the number of men who complete at least one workout, not everyone that signs up (178k+ this year). I don’t care about beating the guys who don’t show up to play. 🙂
