CROSSFIT NEWS: O Course is Back for The 2018 CrossFit Games!

Who will win it this year?

Dave Castro recently released these photos of the O Course that will be featured in the 2018 CrossFit Games.

Dave Castro: “The o course is back. But in a different way.”

O Course CrossFit Games 2018

Last year Patrick Vellner and Tennil Beuerlein won the O Course, but this year it has been rearranged to form a new event. 

We asked top athletes and coaches what events they would like to see at The 2018 CrossFit Games.

SARA SIGMUNDSDOTTIR

“I would love to see:

  • 10-1
  • strict muscle up
  • paralette HSPU
  • heavy squat snatches that get heavier in each set”

CHRIS HINSHAW

Chris Hinshaw is the endurance coach for Mat Fraser, Rich Froning, Katrin Davidsdottir, Camille LeBlanc Bazinet and many more top CrossFit Games Athletes. The last time he was in Berlin we asked him what event he would like to see in the CrossFit games. Of all the answers, this is probably the most creative and unique! 

“One track, 40 men go first, 40 women compete in the second heat.

3,2,1 go then all the men run one lap, whoever is last is disqualified. All athletes continue running until one person is left standing, at the end of each lap whoever is at the back is eliminated. 40 laps total.

This would be EPIC to watch!”

5 Rounds for Time:

  • Row 350m
  • 9 KBS Snatch R 70bs
  • 7 KB Thruster R 70lbs
  • 5 KB Rack Walking Lunge R 70lbs
  • AB 18 Cals
  • 9 KBS Snatch L 70bs
  • 7 KB Thruster L 70lbs
  • 5 KB Rack Walking Lunge L 70lbs

“This workout screams Functional Bodybuilding. How good is your unilateral strength? It is also going to end up longer and reward the athletes that understand how to pace.”

KARA SAUNDERS

PAT VELLNER

“That’s tough, It’s always hard to know what other people are going to be great at. I would say maybe something with running, heavy deadlifts, toes to bar and an odd object of some kind, maybe heavy sandbags.”

TENNIL BEUERLEIN

“That’s a great question! It would involve strong man stuff, and an obstacle course, to finish with a hand stand walk! That would be awesome!”

Tennil Beuerlein

TIA-CLAIR TOOMEY

“This is a hard question to answer as I love so many movements but I really enjoy a combination of heavy lifting and gymnastics movements as it adds variety.”

ADRIAN MUNDWILER

“I would pick a snatch leader with ring muscle ups with increasing weight on the snatches. And the final lift must be heavy!”
