In Heat 1 CrossFit Awaside lead ahead of Lone Star CrossFit. The pegboard proved a challenge, especially combined with the burpees. CrossFit Invictus struggled through the last pegboard due to Jen Ryan’s hand fracture she suffered from the MACC. CrossFit Awaside had a decisive Heat win in 12:05.

In Heat 2 CrossFit Surbiton took the lead for most of the Heat, closely chased by CrossFit Oslo, but Surbiton crushed Awaside’s score with 11:34 for their first event win and third Top 3 finish. Oslo finished the event in sixth.
