Sasha Nievas has posted her Open Workout 23.3 video along with a completion time of seven minutes and 45 seconds—eleven seconds faster than the previous top time set by Mal O’Brien during the Live Announcement (7:56).

Nievas was a topic of controversy last week when it appeared she had edited her 23.2 video submission. The Games veteran from Argentina, who is currently unaffiliated, has been in communication with CrossFit HQ on the issue and her scores remain on the leaderboard at the time of publishing.

What’s Next?

Though it’s not clear when the Open leaderboard will be finalized, registration for the second stage of competition, 2023 NOBULL CrossFit Games Quarterfinals, begins next Monday, March 13th.

According to the 2023 CrossFit Games Rulebook, section 2.02, “The Individual Quarterfinal will begin on Thursday, March 16. Once the Open competition has concluded and the leaderboard is finalized, CrossFit will send out invitations to the Quarterfinal event.”
