2016 CrossFit Open Announcement 16.2 Replay
Dan Bailey won this workout and finished at 19:49. Bjorgvdn Karl Gudmundsson finished 428 reps, which was 2 reps shy of completing the workout. HOWEVER, there was a judging error on Dan Bailey’s score. Here is what CrossFit HQ said about it, “Dan Bailey completed only 8 of the 9 required squat cleans at 275 lb. He and his appointed judge both miscounted the score in the fourth round before Dan went on to complete the remaining reps at 19:49. Because of the judging error, Dan’s score has been withheld from the Leaderboard at his request.”
