Less than 2 weeks from the beginning of the CrossFit Games and HQ has revealed Individual Event 5 for the Fittest on Earth competition. The workout will be heavily based on upper-body strength.
With a sharpie and a piece of paper, CrossFit official account on Twitter revealed Individual Event 5.
Individual Event 5
4 Rounds for Time:
- 4 rope climbs
- 500 / 400 skierg
- Sandbag carry
As usual, Dave Castro leaves something for the imagination. For example, we do not know the length of the rope to be climbed.
Sandbag is also a mystery as it is only speculative how heavy the bag will be and what distance athletes will have to carry it.
2020 CrossFit Games had athletes sprint a 320-metre hill with a corn sack on their back. Men carried 50lb bags while women carried 30lb bags.
Four Individual Events Revealed So Far
So far, 4 out of 15 individual events were partially revealed by CrossFit.
- Event 1 – Paddle and Swim
- Event 2 – Sled pull, pig flip, muscle-ups, pig flip and sled pull.
- Event 3 – 550-yard sprint
- Event 5 – rope climbs, skierg, sandbag carry
Individual event 4 has not been revealed yet.
