There were a total of 5 workouts prescribed for the competition. The most anticipated one, as expected, was the one-rep max. Female athletes had to perform a snatch, while men had to do clean and jerk.

One of the highlights was Annie Thorisdottir easily snatching 85 kilos (187 lbs). That is 5 kilos (13 pounds) less than what she lifted at the CrossFit Games, the same weight that Tia managed in the Coliseum.

Although impressive, Annie Thorisdottir was not the only female competitor to snatch 85 kilos. Swedish athlete Rebecka Vitesson tied in 1st place at the event.

Andre Houdet clean and jerked the most out of all male competitors: 165 kilos.
