CrossFit Games 2021 Individual Event 8 Details Teased

Individual Event 8 looks similar to event 13 from the 2018 CrossFit Games.

CrossFit has released a video teasing what individual event 8 will be at the Games this year and it could be similar to what we saw in 2018.

“A walk-through of Individual Event 8 (IE8),” wrote CrossFit to tease about the workout programmed by Dave Castro.

The 35-second video shows McKenzie Flinchum, 2019’s Games athlete, doing a handstand walk through obstacles, one of them being the parallel bars.

Individual Event 8 Could Be Similar to Event 13 in 2018’s CrossFit Games

It is unclear how many obstacles there will be during Individual Event 8 this year, for how long a person will have to handstand walk, or even if the event is only handstand walk and nothing more.

However, with the return of handstand walk with obstacles and parallel bars, it is normal to turn back to one of the last CrossFit Games events in 2018 titled Handstand Walk.

In that event, athletes had to perform a series of movements for time:

  • 50 heavy-rope double-unders

Followed by handstand walk through obstacles:

  • Pylon slalom
  • Ramps
  • Stairs
  • Parallel bars

Time cap: 4 minutes.

That year, the fastest male athlete was Cody Anderson who finished the event at 1:29:42, followed by Alec Smith at 1:38:60.

In the women division, Brooke Wells has won the event with 1:57:78. Courtney Haley came in second with 1:59:03.
