2023 CrossFit Games Teams Recap Day 3

Test 6 and 7 were done back-to-back, but it forced teams to make a strategic decision on who was going for the max snatches and who was going for the 10 snatches and run for the win.

As it was a back-to-back event, 200 points on the line, the overall winner was CrossFit Invictus who increased their lead on the leaderboard after finishing 3rd and 1st in the events, respectively.

CrossFit Walleye Athlete from Sweden also managed to gain some ground towards the podium after finishing 4th and 3rd in the events.

Test 6:

Before the final test outside, CrossFit Invictus Unconquerable announced they were withdrawing from competition. They were 25th on the leaderboard.

The last test of the day in North Park had people raising to their feet and cheering the teams on. Invictus was already in the lead, but until the last push, literally, of the Bob push CrossFit East Nashville seemed like it had it in the books, but Invictus pushed the Bob faster at the last moment, overtaking the others and increasing their lead even further.
