Tia-Clair Toomey-Orr, Brooke Wells Fail to Complete 24.3

When the 10 round thruster and chest-to-bar/bar muscle-up workout was released for the final workout of the 2024 CrossFit Open, many knew they would be unable to complete the workout before the 15-minute time cap. But for the elite athletes, it was not a matter of how many reps, but how fast could you complete the workout.

In total, 6,513 men and 1,999 women finished the workout ahead of the time cap. So obviously only the top athletes made their way through all 170 reps. However, two elite athletes did not finish the workout – Tia-Clair Toomey-Orr and Brooke Wells.

Toomey-Orr completed 128 reps, or two full rounds into the heavier thrusters and bar muscle-ups. Wells did not complete one bar muscle-up and finished with a score of 107 reps.

Toomey-Orr finished in 11,222nd on 24.3 after taking a 61st on 24.1 and 10th on 24.2. Despite not completing the workout, she is in 2,613th overall.

For Wells, she started the Open with a 33rd and 35th in the first two Open workouts, respectively. Then on 24.3, Wells’ 107 reps was good for 25,221st place. She now sits in 6,350th overall on the worldwide leaderboard.

Despite the poor placement on 24.3, both women are well within the Quarterfinals cut line for the North America East region. The top 10,182 women from NA East advance to Quarterfinals next month.

Toomey-Orr’s finish comes a week after she dropped out of the 24.3 Open live announcement show because of her wrist injury. As for Wells, it is unclear why she failed to complete a single muscle-up. A request for comment was not returned.

Toomey-Orr and Wells were not the only athletes to post a score much worse than the first two weeks, but none are to the pedigree of these two Games veterans. The individual Quarterfinals are just four weeks away (April 17-22). Both will need to be healthy as only the top 40 men and women will advance to their region’s Semifinals.
