Sam Briggs and Travis Stephenson (Who?) Win 16.3

March 15, 2016

Scores for 16.3 have been submitted and validated, and to no big surprise Samantha Briggs is at the top for the women… But who on Earth is Travis Stephenson who claims to have clocked 190 reps and the top spot on the men’s side of things?

We aren’t saying it’s impossible for an unknown name to do well at (or win) an Open workout, but given the fact that Travis posted scores that only got him in 24,191st and 29,513th place in the first two Open workouts this year, the score of 190 seems a little suspect. We will keep you posted when a video of those 190 reps from Travis surfaces…

We dug around online to find out what we could about Travis, and he seems to be an online business and marketing guy so we came to the conclusion that this score submission may be a wild stunt to funnel you into his online marketing webinars. Prove us wrong, Travis! Let’s see that video!

EDIT: Travis’ score was never validated and Devin Thaut (also…who?) won 16.3 with a score of 150?

For now, here’s what the current Leaderboard looks like both for the Open workout 16.3 and the overall standings after three weeks of the 2016 CrossFit Open.
