Week two of the CrossFit Open is done with scores from 22.2 reviewed and verified. With just one week left of the Open here are seven takeaways from the second workout and the leaderboard.

1. Teenage Open Champion?

Before the start of the Open, Brian Friend, Tommy Marquez and myself each selected their picks to win the Open in the men’s and women’s divisions. For the women I chose 18-year-old Mallory O’Brien based on her fifth place finish last year and also her now being coached by Mat Fraser as a HWPO athlete. The question with O’Brien is how much potential she has and how soon would we see it now that she’s under the tutelage of Fraser? After just two workouts it looks like Fraser and his team has tapped into that potential sooner rather than later.
