CrossFitGames09AffiliateCompAerial.jpgThe Affiliate Cup finals happened on Sunday afternoon. Northwest CrossFit had such a commanding lead from Friday's events that they were practically guaranteed the win. As long as they didn't come in last and CrossFit Central came in first, they would take home the Cup.

The four other teams fighting for the final event victory were CrossFit NorCal, CrossFit Calgary, CrossFit Invictus, and Oregon CrossFit.

The workout was:
75 squat cleans (100/155 lb.)
150 toes to bar
150 box jumps (20/24 inches)
75 thrusters (95/135 lb.)
35 muscle-ups
150 burpees
150 double-unders
300' walking lunges with 35 lb. plate overhead

In a 30min workout, Invictus edged out Calgary by a mere 7 seconds, winning in 31:16.

The original competition was designed for five teams in the final event. There was a scoring error (simple mistake in addition on the OHS/Pullup workout) that was discovered after the announcement of the final five teams was made. In the spirit of competition, the decision was made to expand the pool to the sixth team instead of removing Oregon from the competition with the corrected results. With the corrected results, CrossFit SoCal ended up in a tie for sixth place. We had a tiebreak system built into the scoring from the get-go (best overall finish in any single event), so Oregon kept their sixth place finish.

This picture was taken during Friday's second round of events by Dave Re from a small plane chartered to photograph the event from the air. It's larger than our typical picture posted so that you can see the athletes better. Open in a new tab if you can't scroll automatically.

Where's the love for NW Crossfit? They show up and win without any hype, and all the talk afterwards is about all the other teams.

I agree with (#2) Northwest Crossfit got no attention coming into the games and dominated the first day but I haven't even seen a picture of them let alone some details, who was on the team? More about their gym?

What was the rule for the affiliate finale? Could all teammembers do reps at the same time, or only one at a time?
