March Madness is a common term for college basketball this time of year but I think CrossFit can officially claim this term as well. We are three weeks into the Worldwide CrossFit Open, where athletes around the world compete to get their spot on the big CrossFit stage in August at Madison, WI.
Like many CrossFits, we do not have any potential athletes or teams competing for that big spotlight but we have the fire of competition within us just the same! This is our third year doing the CrossFit 45 North Intramural Open. What that means is, we have split up all of the willing athletes into two separate teams (Team Anarchy and Team SP, aka SumoPrancercizors).
Each week, every athlete gets points for their team by completing the workouts assigned by CrossFit Headquarters, dressing in the theme of the week, cheering on fellow athletes and various other ways to get bonus points! At the end of the 5 weeks, the winning team will get their name on the beloved "Cup" Trophy!
It is another close year and with 2 weeks left in the Open, the Cup could still go to either team. Here are the past years results and the weekly results so far this year!! If you are in the area, come enjoy the fun on Friday Nights for the next two weeks. See the pictures below to see the Madness that exists in March for everyone at CrossFit 45 North. We have fully embraced and are loving all of the March Madness!
