DAY 4 at 2022 CrossFit Games:Big Lifting Saturday

Day 4 of the CrossFit Games ended with a change in men’s leaderboard as Ricky Garard slips to second place and Justin Medeiros is now on top.

There were three events on tap for the individuals and teams, and it was the final day of the competition for age groups and adaptive athletes. When the dust settled at the end of the day the individual field was cut to 30 and the teams to 20.

It appears that Tia-Clair Toomey-Orr has solidified her hold on the number one position and now leads Mallory O’Brien by almost a hundred points. She is well on her way to winning yet another CrossFit Games title!

The individual events were Rinse N’ Repeat (50-yard swim, 8-calorie Ski Erg), Hat Trick (sprint, 20 wall-ball shots, 6 dumbbell snatches), and Sandbag Ladder (1-rep-max sandbag to shoulder).

Individual Event 8: Rinse ‘N’ Repeat

The athletes were all given a 50-yard swim and ski erg workout (8-10-12-14-16-18), which included up to eight rounds. If they failed in completing both within two minutes then it was game over for them!

Individual Event 9: Hat Trick

The midday event on day four was an all-out sprint, three rounds with four minutes to rest in-between. In each round the athlete had to sprint down the field, complete 20 wall balls (20 and 14 pounds, but 12- and 11-feet targets), followed by six dumbbell squat snatches with a heavy dumbbell, 100 pounds for the men and 70 for the women, then capped off with a final sprint across the finish line.

The women were the first group to do this CrossFit Games event. The 40 athletes were divided into 2 heats with each heat doing one round at a time.
