2020 Crossfit Games Phase I

My picks for the top 5 were

Mathew Frazier - 1st
Noah Ohlsen - 2nd
Chandler Smith - 6th
Jacob Heppner - 12th
Patrick Vellner - 9th

Tia-Clair Toomey - 1st
Kara Saunders - 8th
Haley Adams - 3rd
Dani Speegle - 13th
Ragnheiour Sara Sigmundsdottir - 21st

On the men's side, Justin Medeiros, Samuel Kwant and Jeffrey Adler rounded out the top 5

On the women's side, Brooke Wells, Katrin Tanja Davidsdottir and Kari Pearce rounded out the top 5

I thought the programming for phase 1 was really good

Friendly Fran (5 min)
1RM Front Squat
Damn Diane (5 min)
1000m Row (4 min)
Nasty Nancy (20 min)
Handstand Hold (2 min)
Awful Annie (10 min)

Most of it was on a short time domain and as a result every second mattered.  In a live competition, I think this would have been more entertaining.  The 1RM was a good event that was a real separator.
