Two more events were released over the weekend for the Teens and Masters Divisions. The Double-Under Snatch and Quatrain event details were published on the CrossFit Games site.

Both events are scheduled for Saturday. The first is the Double-Under Snatch Event. It is the first event on Saturday for the teens and masters. For the 50+ Masters divisions, this will be held inside the Coliseum. For the teens and Under-50 Masters divisions, they will be in the Age Group Pavilion.

The competition for the teens and masters divisions are definitely taking a step up from previous years. In 2015 and 2016, there were only seven events for these groups and it felt much more like a regional-style event.

This year, however, the Teens and 35-49 Masters already have 8 scheduled events with one more likely to come on Sunday. The 50+ Masters divisions appear to have kept the same number events as previous years – seven.
