After slowing sharing athletes who will be competing at the Rogue Invitational on its Instagram page, men’s and women’s field is set after Rogue published a list of competitors on its website.
The men’s field is as expected. All of the top 15 men from this year’s CrossFit Games will be in attendance along with the top 5 from The Q, Rogue’s online qualifier.
The women’s field is a bit different.
Five of the top 15 women have declined their invite. Tia-Clair Toomey, Mal O’Brien, Brooke Wells, Hayley Adams and Kristi Eramo O’Connell all declined their invitation to compete.
For Toomey, the decision to sit out the competition, is not a complete surprise as she continues to slowly get back into training after injuring her back prior to the Games. Toomey will, however, be competing on a team at the Down Under Championship alongside PRVN teammate Brooke Wells.
Hayley Adams, not on the list, appears to have been a late scratch after being confirmed to compete by Rogue on September 7.
No word on why O’Brien and O’Connell have elected to sit this one out.
The five athletes filling in for those athletes are Annie Thorisdottir, Carolyne Prevost, Matilde Garnes, Dani Speegle and Ellie Turner.
Thorisdottir was one of the first athletes that Rogue confirmed would be competing, likely a sign that Toomey had declined her invite early in the process. Garnes finished 6th in The Q and was added to the official roster yesterday.
And Rogue rounded out the roster with Speegle, Turner and Prevost who finished in 17th, 18th and 23rd, respectively.
With that, the field is set. 20 men, 20 women and a $1.25 million prize purse. It all takes place in Austin, Texas, on October 28-30. Stay tuned!
