Taylor Self Goes Sub-8:00 to Win Workout 3 in Taylor Self vs The World

After falling just one rep short of Dallin Pepper and Colten Mertens on Workout 4 of the 2024 CrossFit Quarterfinals, Taylor Self stepped up big time this afternoon when they took on Workout 3.

Self and Mertens took the floor for the second heat after Jayson Hopper and Dallin Pepper gave the gymnastics-based workout a shot at CrossFit Crash. Hopper set the time to beat of 8:20, but Self did not need a full eight minutes to complete the handstand push-up, toes-to-bar, rope climb and ring muscle-up workout.

Self finished in 7:59, beating Hopper by 21 seconds. Colten took 3rd in the group with a time of 9:18 and Pepper rounded out the group in 9:32.
