Watch Chandler Smith and Noah Ohlsen Demolish Open Workout 21.2

For most of us, even attempting an RX’d Open Workout is a challenge. For others, it’s competing the workout within the time limit. For CrossFit’s fittest, it’s all about demolishing the leaderboard — which is exactly what Games athletes Noah Ohlsen and Chandler Smith have done.

Both athletes shared their 21.2 attempts on YouTube, crushing the challenge in half the allocated time (the time limit for 21.2 was 20 minutes).

From his 21.2 attempt, it’s obvious Noah Ohlsen isn’t playing around. The man who only just missed out on a podium spot at last year’s Games blasts through this Open workout in just 9.33. At the time of writing, Noah leads the Individual Men’s category overall, completing Open workout 21.1 in 11:41. Will this be Noah’s year to become the Fittest on Earth?

Chandler Smith also took on the workout in magnificient form, beating out Ohlsen’s time by just one second — 9.32. His buprees are particularly impressive, with barely a change between the first set and the last.

“I chopped off my finger on day 1 of the 2017 @crossfitgames Open and ended up missing 17.1 and the whole season as a result. This one has been a long time coming,” Chandler wrote on Instagram. “On to week 3.”

This attempt puts Chandler within the top 10 male athletes worldwide for 21.2 and at 79th on the leaderboard at the time of writing (unofficially). With one CrossFit Open workout left to go and a time like that, we’re bound to see it rise.
