The 1RM Snatch is Back! CrossFit Games Announces Individual Event 10 & 12

Two more Individual events were announced over the weekend, just in time for tomorrow’s 2021 CrossFit Games kick off in Madison.

So far we have information about the following Indy Events 1, 2, 3, 5, and 8. In total there will be 15 Events over four days.

Individual Event 10

X-Men actress and CrossFit enthusiast Anna Paquin took to the CrossFit Games Instagram account to announce IE 10. She follows fellow celebrity CrossFitter Max Greenfield, who announce the workout for IE2.

The True Blood star lets us know that Event 10 will be:

  • 30 Toes-to-bar
  • 1.5 Mile Run
  • 30 Toes-to-bar
  • 1.5 Mile Run
  • 30 Toes-to-bar

This will be a test of the athletes gymnastic ability, pacing, endurance and speed. We can expect a race to the finish!

Individual Event 12

But more exciting than that was the announcement of one of the last events – Individual Event 12.

This will be a one rep Snatch. The CrossFit Games cuts for individuals will be stopped when the field is halved after 10 events. This means the the field will be packed with 20 athletes lifting as heavy as they can.

The last time there was a 1RM Snatch was the in the early stages of the 2017 Games; where we saw some absolutely huge lifts from GOATs Brent Fikowski (291lbs) and Mat Fraser (291lbs). Garret Fisher won the event at 305 pounds. Chyna Cho smashed the event for the women with a 183lb Snatch.

The 2021 CrossFit Games are taking place between July 27 – August 1 2021 in Madison, Wisconsin. To stay up-to-date with all the latest updates follow BOXROX on Twitter or watch the livestream!
