The second season of Semifinals qualifying has come to an end and the collective CrossFit community has (hopefully) had some time to wind down from a whirlwind four weeks of live competition. I was fortunate to travel to three events in-person including one overseas in Europe, and now that the jet lag has finally worn off I wanted to share some observations and takeaways from the Semifinals and my time in the sister cities of London and Knoxville. 

I tried to spread things out between direct competition results and themes that apply to competition past, present, and future, so if you brought your Semifinals BINGO card with you, you might be in luck.

Common Event Comparisons

New to the live event Semifinals this season were two workouts programmed for both individuals and teams by CrossFit. Similar to Regionals programming of the past, it allowed for some comparisons of performance across events as well providing a semblance of consistency across testing, particularly with the strength events.
