A HUGE congratulations to all the competitors, and a HUGE thank you to all the volunteers, supporters, and sponsors who came out and made this the greatest weekend in CrossFit's history.

Sorry for the lack of posts yesterday. The entire media team was in clean-up, travel, and recovery mode. We have so much information, photos, and videos on their way. Keep checking back!

As much as I've been dying for more, I knew you guys were probably exhausted, not to mention in transit.

Thanks for all you do - we love it!

As a competitor in the Affiliate team challenge, I can't express our thanks enough. If you were not there, you can't appreciate all the work that went into running 3 days of events. And that's only the things I could see, not to mention everything behind the scenes. A special thanks to the judges who did an excellent job with a VERY difficult task. The whole experience was better than I expected. For those few people who were complaining about not having updates sooner and the scoring system, please think before you criticize.

For full results for the Affiliate Cup, Men's and Women's on those words beneath the text that says "live scoring" next to the Games logo at the top left of the page.

As in the results pages linked under "Live scoring" at the top of the page?

The pages are

They were updated at the completion of each round right through the weekend. Very useful information, nicely done.

Was there anyone that failed the steroid test? or are those results not known yet?

All of the coverage so far has been much appreciated - you media guys must be worked into the ground by now in your own version of the Games! Looking forward to the videos etc but make sure you get in some recovery time too. Sometimes we take all of this for granted when in reality there is a huge time and passion commitment on your part. Thanks!

I can only speak for myself, but... I was sure glad I'm a CrossFit-ter by the end of the weekend :D I was pretty much toast... but I can't imagine I'm even a tenth as sore as the competitors... ;)

MANY THANKS to the judges, volunteers, and Games organizers for their endless energy, time, and enthusiasm!

It was very clear that spectators, coaches, judges, and competitors wanted everyone to be successful.

I had a ball competing and cheering/encouraging others on!

I WILL keep checking back... There's no where else to get my fix!

Besides the athlete & spectator close-ups & in the spirt of open source, I'd love to see some posts specifically regarding the details, rationale & key-learnings around the scoring system & choice of events...

Also "behind-the-scene" posts about the movers&shakers, logistics, finances, media, qualifiers, etc would make my day.

It was a great Competition and ultimately the best guy won. But my thoughts go to the scoring of the deadlift and its effect on the competition overall....obviously no one thought anyone would DL 505 after the run, but 15 competitors scoring 1 point creates a significant distortion over the field. Hindsight they should have played it out to 600lbs and averaged ties. ie 15 tie for first, avg would have been 8 probably net 5-6 points to the field final standings
