What does training for half a dozen years do to a person’s fitness?
The last workout of the 2018 Open, picked from three options by the CrossFit community, was an ascending ladder of thrusters and chest-to-bar pull-ups, a repeat of the final Open workouts in 2011 and 2012.
Open Workout 18.5 allowed all the athletes who completed 11.6 and 12.5 an opportunity to compete against their former selves.
In 2012 Camille Leblanc-Bazinet won 12.5 with a score of 173. This year, 29-year-old Leblanc-Bazinet improved on her 2012 score by 26 reps, finishing with 199 reps and tying for second with fellow Canadian Carol-Ann Reason-Thibault.
The winner of 18.5 for the women was the only athlete to break the 200 barrier. Kara Saunders climbed up the ladder so rapidly she made it to 24 thrusters, completed all of them, and then got in nine chest-to-bar pull-ups before the seven minutes expired. She finished with a score of 201, and the win bumped her up to second place overall in the Open and first in the Australasia region.
Cassidy Lance-McWherter, the four-time Games athlete who finished 12th in 2017, won the 2018 Open for the women. Lance-McWherter never won a workout but had three top-10 finishes. In 2016 she missed qualifying for the Games by 9 points at the Atlantic Regional but came back and placed fifth in the world in the Open. She then won the Atlantic Regional in 2017. This year, she topped that feat and won the worldwide Open.
In third place overall is Carolyne Prevost, a professional hockey player who has competed at Regionals every year since 2013 but never qualified for the Games. In 2017 she finished 10th at the East Regional to post her best finish.
All three Icelandic women who completed 18.5 at the Open announcement at CrossFit Reykjavík kept their scores from Thursday night. Annie Thorisdottir, Katrin Davidsdottir and Sara Sigmundsdottir know the end goal is the Games, and all three women easily qualified for their respective Regionals. Thorisdottir finished fifth in the world in the Open, Davidsdottir eighth, and Sigmundsdottir 20th.
