TREVOR BACHMEYER BANNED AND DISQUALIFIED

Here is the official statement from CrossFit:

“Trevor Bachmeyer, 44, has been disqualified from the 2017 Reebok CrossFit Games competition. Bachmeyer was previously ranked first worldwide in the Masters Men 40-44 Division, and second in the individual division in the NorCal Region.

Each year, prior to awarding invitations to Regionals, CrossFit confirms the capacity of potential Regional athletes through video review. Bachmeyer submitted a video of Open Workout 17.3 upon request. His video submission was flagged by one of CrossFit’s judges, which prompted a request for additional videos. After review of Bachmeyer’s 17.5 video, a judge determined that only a single round was performed and then repeated on a loop to give the appearance of 10 rounds. Subsequent analysis by CrossFit Inc.’s video department also supported this determination.  

Bachmeyer’s Open scores will be invalidated immediately. In addition, he will be banned from competing in any CrossFit-sanctioned event for a period of four years from today, pending an appeal, if any.”

About The Author

Editor-In-Chief at BOXROX. I come from a background of rugby and weightlifting. Growing up in the English Lake District, I spent a great deal of time swimming in its stunning lakes and rivers. In 2015 my brothers and I became the first people to swim the 145km length of the River Eden, from source to mouth, in 9 days. We also swam the Corryvreckan whirlpool, the third largest in the world, and Crossfit is a huge part of my training for these events.
