Crossfit Move Fast Lift Heavy 247’s Christian Harris and Winter Nicolette Rodriguez were the first pair off of their rower and held the lead through the synchro dumbbell snatches and box jumps. All 10 pairs who rowed first finished their box jumps before any team pair who skied first finished their box jumps. With a slower pace on the dumbbell snatches and box jumps from Move Fast Lift Heavy 247’s second pair of Will Carter and Chloe Gauvin-David, CrossFit East Nashville PRVN was the first to advance to round two.
Despite Tim Paulson and Andrea Nisler being the first pair to finish round two, having to wait for Taylor Williamson and Tola Morakinyo to finish their 30-inch box jumps lead East Nashville PRVN to lose their lead to TTT CrossFit Black into the third round. AB CrossFit – Mayhem followed right behind in third place.
Nisler and Paulson on the 30-inch box jumps was the first pair to finish round three despite having the taller boxes. The second pair finished was CrossFit Mayhem Independence’s Sam Demeester and Kyra Milligan who made their move in round three. Their pacing paid off as they volleyed themselves into second place heading into round four.
Mayhem Independence continued their charge edging past East Nashville PRVN through the dumbbell snatches and maintaining through the box jumps. With barely more than a second advantage going into round five, it was going to come down to the final set of box jumps.
Morakinyo and Williamson were the final pair of the four from East Nashville PRVN and Mayhem Independence to their dumbbell snatches but a strong showing of fast muscle snatches kept them in the running. Onto the box jumps, Mayhem Independence’s Milligan and Demeester were the first pair to advance, followed by Morakinyo and Williamson (East Nashville PRVN), then Nisler and Paulson (East Nashville PRVN), and finally Mayhem Independence’s Angelo Dicicco and Zoe Jones.
With East Nashville PRVN being the first team to get both of their pairs to the box jumps, they were able to edge out Mayhem Independence for the heat and test win. TTT CrossFit Black stayed steady in third place from round three to grab a third place in test four.
