Last year the teams had the 1RM Clean & Jerk for their strength event and individuals had the snatch. This year the teams will get their shot at the snatch. After hinting at a platform on the North Lot field, the CrossFit Games confirmed the event shortly after.

The female pairs will go first and will have four minutes to establish a 1RM snatch for each athlete. Immediately following that, the men will have four minutes to hit their 1RM snatch. It will be a quick event, just eight minutes in total, but will require explosive power after their work on Wednesday.
