CrossFit Open 17.1: Preliminary Analysis

This is part of a series on The CrossFit Games 2017 Open Workouts. For more, checkout: 17.1 Final Analysis.

It’s Saturday morning and hundreds of thousands of CrossFit athletes of all Fitness Levels will be taking a crack at 17.1 this weekend. We compiled some early stats to give you an idea of what you might want to shoot for on this one.

Keep in mind that on any 20 minute workout you should heed the old adage “slow and steady wins the race.” Otherwise, you’re going to look up at the clock 8 minutes in and wish it said 18. We know the 10s and 20s are going to feel great, but don’t give in to the siren call and make the final 12 minutes miserable. Consider yourself warned.

The following percentiles are based on several thousand results that have already been posted to BTWB (thanks guys!). These percentiles may change slightly as the weekend progresses and more scores are entered into the system.

Men’s 90th Percentile: 15:56
Men’s 50th Percentile: 19:58
Women’s 90th Percentile: 16:18
Women’s 50th Percentile: 213 reps (3 of the last 15 Burpees)

How many people are finishing this thing?

Don’t feel too bad if you get time capped on this one. In the Rx’d Individual division we’re currently seeing 49% of the Men and 56% of the Women not finishing before the 20-minute time-cap. And that’s in addition to all the athletes who decided to attack the Scaled version instead.

    Agh! Finished in 16:19 so it’s close to 90%. Might try again to shave a few seconds. I’m in the 40-45 category, would this be different ranking?

    This year, will you do something to take into account the number of people taking the scale version over the RX in adjusting the difficulty rating of the RX version?

    Please include the Masters 60+ If you do a category analysis.
    Thank you!!

    Can anything be done about all the scores incorrectly logged as 20:00? I feel like logging 20:01 puts you way further down the percentile than it should because of all the people who forgot to penalize with a second per missed rep.

    Great analysis – would love to see the breakdown for Masters and including total reps for those of us capped!

    If you click “like me” on the filtering in results it should answer your scaled/age group questions.

    For our own purposes, we’re manually correcting anything logged incorrectly on our site 🙂

    Is it possible to have the raw data ? It would be amazing for the community.
