This morning the Rogue Invitational Online Qualifier leaderboard was different than what was published on their Instagram page yesterday morning. Kyra Milligan, who was in 5th place yesterday and one point ahead of Christine Kolenbrander, found herself tied in points with Kolenbrander and in 6th place because of the tiebreaker.
No official announcement had been made by Rogue at the time and I reached out to the Rogue Invitational media team asking for clarification. According to Rogue, the software had a “stackup glitch” on Workout 1B that was fixed overnight.
This fix gave Kolenbrander an additional point, bumping her up into 5th place giving her the automatic invite to compete at the Rogue Invitational next month.
Rogue did, however, decide to invite the top 6 men and women from The Q to compete at Round Rock in October. So, Kyra Milligan and Jayson Hopper, both in 6th place, have received an invite from Rogue.
The Rogue Invitational Instagram page has been slowly releasing athletes who have accepted their invite to compete this year. Here is who has accepted their invite and been announced by Rogue:
|1||Ricky Garard (Q)||Dani Speegle (Q)|
|2||Victor Hoffer (Q)||Manon Angonese (Q)|
