Vellner, Sigmundsdottir, Briggs and Many More Out – CrossFit Games Day 3 Recap

The day started with a sprinting event that would savagely cut the field in half, from 20 to 10 athletes. For many big name athletes, the tension was palpable. They had to survive this event and make it to the final 10. 

After the Sprint Event was completed, all the following males were cut.

And all the following female athletes


There was tremendous pressure on the athletes starting the day with the Sprint Event.
