With the finally tally of the Open results in, we wanted to give a few shoutouts to some notable performances in the 2018 CrossFit Games Open.Before we go into this, know that each one of you should be VERY proud of what you have done. 1st place in the world or last place in the world, you are working on being a better person, becoming the most fit version of you, and this is what truly matters in the long run. Ranking is nice, but not the most important, unless your goals are in line with this.
Again, all so very proud of everyone! Use any and all of this for motivation, consistency, and intensity in your pursuits to being a better you.
We got one life -- might as well make the best of it.
The following are notable performances (top). There are so many of you in the top 5% of the world's most fit and I just didn't have time to go through it all. We should be so proud as a gym. (please let me know if I missed any notable performances! There are so many I might have missed).
These are your gym family - congratulate them when you see them next!
