This year, we’re adding something new, and leaving something behind. We say goodbye to the mixed pairs, and say hello to the invite-only individuals.

Although the 2017 mixed pairs finals was one of the most gut wrenching events to watch (we can’t be the only ones who remember the incredible finish by Jen and Junior of CrossFit 204), we have replaced it with an exclusive individuals competition.

This was meant to do two things: 1) increase the competition level in the RX (mm/ff) teams, and 2) showcase the incredible individual athletes from in and around Winnipeg.

The RX teams will be fierce this year. The WODS will be tougher, the weights will be heavier, and the fitness of both teammates will be tested!

We had a few people ask for movement/weight requirements for the different divisions – hopefully this will give you an idea of where you fall:

INDIVIDUALS (BY INVITE ONLY):
You should be badass at all CrossFit movements.

RX TEAMS :

Both athletes on the team should be competent in each of the major CrossFit movements. As a team, you should be able to complete most standard classic CrossFit workouts as prescribed. A good strategy would be to have varied skills amongst your team members.

You should be proficient* with skills such as ring and bar muscle ups, handstand push-ups, toes to bar, overhead squats, DB/KB Snatches, rowing, box jumps, walking lunges, running, burpees, double-unders, rope climbs, tire flips, etc.

*NOTE: You will not be disqualified if you cannot complete a movement, you will simply be scored lower on that event.

Teams should also feel confident with the following:
Snatch and Thruster 155/105 lbs
Clean and Jerk 205/135 lbs

NON-RX TEAMS:

This category is suitable for athletes who may be first time competitors or those who have been doing CrossFit for a while but are still developing their skills and strength – both individuals should be familiar with the classic CrossFit movements.

This category does not require advanced gymnastics skills such as muscle-ups or handstand pushups, nor does it require the size or strength required for big lifts, however, having one of your team members more suited to some of these tasks may prove to be an advantage.

You should be proficient* with skills such as pull ups, push-ups, toes to rings, overhead squats, DB/KB Snatches, rowing, box jumps, walking lunges, running, burpees, skipping, stationary sled pulls, tire flips, etc.

*NOTE: You will not be disqualified if you cannot complete a movement, you will simply be scored lower on that event.

Teams should also feel confident with the following:
Snatch 95/65 lbs
Clean and Jerk 115/75 lbs
Thruster 95/65 lbs
