Nerding Out at the 2023 Rogue Invitational, Days One and Two
We now officially have two days and three events of the Rogue Invitational in the books and the leaderboard is shaping up almost exactly as we expected, but that doesn’t mean we also haven’t seen our fair share of surprises.
As we have done for other major competitions this year, in this post we will be sharing 10 of the most interesting, and perhaps unknown statistics that have come out of the Rogue Invitational over the first couple of days.
Let’s dive right in.
- Last year when Laura Horvath won the Rogue Invitational, she was averaging an eighth place finish after three tests had been completed. This year she is currently averaging a finish of 2.3 after three tests.
- Including the last time Tia-Clair Toomey-Orr competed at Rogue in 2021, she now has 10 straight test finishes inside the top seven.
- In Event 2” “Seat at the Bar,” five out of 19 (26%) of men and six out of 20 (30%) of women didn’t finish under the time cap.
- This is the second year in a row that Ricky Garard has finished 18th on Event 3.
- Including this year’s Games, Jeffrey Adler has 12 straight workout finishes inside the top 10.
- Six of the top 10 male finishers in Event 1, finished in 10th or worse on the next event, and five of them finished outside of the top 10 in Event 3 as well.
- Five of the top 10 female finishers in Event 1, finished in 10th or worse on the next event, and five of them finished outside of the top 10 in Event 3 as well.
- After a 13th place finish in Event 1, Patrick Vellner is tied for second place after three events, only 20 points behind first.
- After three events there are currently no American athletes in a podium position on either the men’s or women’s side.
- Due to the width of the log bar on Event 2, every female athlete did singles on their muscle ups throughout the entire workout.
