So I’m just going to post the events and their descriptions for Events 2 and 5 for the 2011 CrossFit Games below. My take on them…. awesome. They’re only 2 of 5 (or more…. definitely more) events, and they capture so many unique facets of fitness.

I approve! (Since you care)

Remember, this stuff is pasted straight off of the Official CrossFit Games site.

While sitting in the stands, the athletes learned Events 2 and 5 for the individual competition. Both are 3-part skills tests. Individual Event 2 is:

Skills 1
Max L-sit for time (1 attempt)
Max distance softball throw (2 attempts)
Max distance handstand walk (1 attempt with 1 mulligan if less than 5 yards)

Athletes will be scored for this event in the same system as the Regional scoring. And they will be ranked in each test with the sum of their 3 rankings determining their final score for the event. Low score wins and will receive the identical points as the other events.

Individual Event 5 is:

Skills 2
1 rep max weighted chest-to-bar pull-up for load
1 rep max snatch for load
Jug carry for distance in 60 seconds

Each athlete has 2 minutes to establish a 1 rep max chest-to-bar pull-ups, 2 minutes to establish a 1 rep max snatch, and then will have 60 seconds to carry 2 weighted water jugs, as far as possible.

Athletes will be ranked in each test with the sum of their 3 rankings, determining their final score for the event
