First of all, what a great way to start off the 2016 CrossFit Open! We had a 20% increase in participation from last year, with 90 athletes submitting a score for 16.1. Of those 90 athletes, 54 were men and 36 were women. But what I think to be our most impressive stat on 16.1, is that 82% of our athletes did the workout Rx’d, which leaves only 18% scaled. Our first week is proving that we have some incredibly fit athletes at Mad Apple CrossFit.
Now, lets breakdown the scoring for the Intramural Open. Below is how the scoring works:
Participation – 1 point will be awarded to each team for every individual who participates in the planned team events on either Friday or Saturday and submit their score to the Games website before the Monday deadline.
If the athlete does not complete the workout during our planned team events on Friday or Saturday, but still submits a score, that athlete will not be counted toward the team’s overall participation points. Athletes who workout Friday morning or Saturday evening will not count either, points will only be awarded to athletes who participate in the planned team events.
Spirit – Teams will be ranked 1 to 6 on their “team spirit” during the Friday and Saturday events. This may include, but is not limited to, themed clothing, team cheers, team dance moves, excitement toward teammates, etc. 6 points will be awarded to 1st place, 5 points to 2nd and 4 points to 3rd, etc. Ranking will be determined by the coaches from each team.
MVP – 5 points will be award to one individual each week that exemplifies the spirit of the open. This person may be RX, Scaled, Masters or a Teen. Each week coaches will post their recommendation and as a community we will vote on the winner each week.
Competitor Points – Draft picks can earn points for their team as follows:
Top 6 (3 M/3 F) athletes who score on the worldwide leaderboard will each receive 1 point for their team
Top 2 (1 M/1 F) athletes who score on the worldwide leaderboard will each receive 1 point for their team
Team Member Points – Athletes who were not drafted will earn points as follows:
Top 10 (5 M/5 F) athletes:
1st = 5 pts 2nd = 4 pts 3rd = 3 pts 4th = 2 pts 5th = 1 pt
Top 12 (6 M/6 F) athletes:
1st = 6pts 2nd = 5 pts 3rd = 4 pts 4th = 3 pts 5th = 2 pts 6th = 1 pt
Top 6 (3 M/3 F) athletes:
1st = 3 pts 2nd = 2 pts 3rd = 1 pt
Top 8 (4 M/4 F) athletes:
1st = 4 pts 2nd = 3 pts 3rd = 2 pts 4th = 1 pt
