Week 2 is underway for the CrossFit Semifinals, and the field at the Mid-Atlantic CrossFit Challenge is absolutely stacked!

On the women’s side — Brooke Wells having a strong first day of competition, not just on the leaderboard, but with her elbow too. A lot of demanding workouts on her elbow from the first two events proved that she is looking healthy and ready to take on the season.

As for the men’s field, it’s about to be a dog fight for who can sneak into that top five and stay there through Sunday. Saxon Panchik with the early lead but many veteran Games athletes sit just outside the cutline.

Morning Chalk Up’s Lauren Kalil sits down with Brian Friend and Dex Hopkins to talk about all of the major moments from the day and who they’re watching at the MACC moving into day two.
