Down Under CrossFit Championship Day Two

DAY 2 RECAP – What went on at the Down Under CrossFit Championships

Athletes slowly securing their positions on the leaderboard, a close team competition and a visit to the beach.

Day 2 of the Down Under CrossFit Championship saw individual athletes “Battle the Beach” on a 800m run, 300m swim and a final 1km run.

They then returned indoors to perform strict handstand push-ups, muscle ups, rowing and a calorie Ski Erg.

Amanda Barnhart absolutely smashed Individual Event 4, finishing in 7:51, almost two minutes quicker than the fastest male. She also won the Battle the Beach event by one second, securing her top spot at the end of day 2.

Australian favourite Matt McLeod also won Event 4 and the Battle of the Beach, going into the last day of competition in first place. American Jake Floen, currently ranked 30th, surprised everyone by winning Individual Event 5.

X-terminators continue to hold the lead over Project X in the Teams division by just 18 points after Event 4. When asked about how ‘X-terminators’ came together @rob_forte disclosed “I saw James Newbury and Maddie Sturt’s name and I thought, ‘I wonder if they’ll want to go team?’. Rob was stoked when they both agreed to compete this weekend, even though both have already earnt individual spots to The Games. “The first goal of this weekend was to just have fun”. Will we see X-terminators standing at the top of the podium after the event this weekend? @downundercrossfitchampionship @win_entertainment_centre @reebokau @rogueaustralia @undefine.media 📸 @mikesalwayphotography #destinationwollongong #downundercrossfitchampionship #ducrossfitchamp
