No OPT's or AFT's, although OPT's brother is running away with 1st place! AFT's wife had a baby on Thursday but he wasn't planning on competing, regardless.

Why no OPT? Did his 2007 win earn him a spot?

Nope, not as far as I know. His wife had a child in January so they are plenty busy these days, but I think he wanted to focus his energys on creating a great qualifiers and he's done that. It's going off so well right now, the organizers should be very proud of that. The support from the whole CF community has been amazing. One more event to go!

thanks for the info gaucoin. definitely sounds like it was an incredible event. at the same time i was very much looking forward to seeing OPT in action, it is always amazing to watch him crossfit. must have been hard for someone as competitive as he is to make the choice to sit.

at least he has avoided all the unfortunate stuff that the bainbridges have had to deal with...
