Sam Briggs Wins CrossFit Open Workout 18.1

The Engine from England takes the win!

CrossFit Inc “On Thursday night, the 36-year-old took on Open Workout 18.1 in Brazil, going head-to-head against Kristin Holte only minutes after both women learned the details of the event. Briggs, the 2013 CrossFit Games champ, won that challenge, finishing 30 reps ahead of Holte in the 20-minute test of 8 toes-to-bars, 10 dumbbell hang clean and jerks, and a 12-calorie row (14 calories for men). Briggs traveled home to England and redid 18.1 sometime between Friday and Monday. She improved her already-impressive score by 43 reps to post 452 (15 rounds plus 2 toes-to-bars). This put her in first place worldwide for the women, 24 reps ahead of second-place Annie Thorisdottir.

Briggs also occupies the top spot in the Masters Women 35-39 Division.

Briggs excels at rowing and is known as an endurance athlete—they call her “The Engine”—so she had to know this was her workout to win. Only one other Open Workout, 16.1, featured a 20-minute time cap, and Briggs finished second overall to Emily Bridgers by just 6 reps.”
