The gymnastics was only starting with the announcement of 19.3, here comes the Muscle-ups… If you can make it. 19.4 was unique in a sense that it was the first time a CrossFit Open workout had a rest portion built in. Essentially, 19.4 was 2 workouts, both requiring athletes to press down on the gas pedal in hope to bank enough time to finish the entire WOD in under 12 minutes. Let’s see how our athletes fared this week.

SPIRIT

Both teams came together to show their spirit and wear green for St. Patty’s day. We celebrated Hai and Lauren’s birthday and completed our annual beer mile. Lee of Team Black and Ilya of Team Grey were the winner of this years race. Overall, the spirit was fairly close but Team Grey once again took the Win.

And The Winner Is…

Team Grey managed to once again dominate the spirit of the Open, but Team Black has shown them that it takes more than fancy costumes to win the Open. Team black took week 4 with a score of 19 – 18. They managed to hold off Team Grey’s rally for another week. Team Grey has made some big moves this week, holding onto spirit and retaking the fitness challenge category. This week wasn’t ideal for them but they still aren’t out of contention, they are only 11 points behind heading into the final week.
