Now that the 2016 CrossFit Regionals are over, we know who the Games athletes are, how they compare to one another, and have an idea of who to watch in July.

But before we get too ahead of ourselves, let’s take a look back at some of the outstanding displays of talent from this year’s Regionals.

Below are the top three women’s performances:

Kara Webb crushes Event 1




E1 5:29.82, her heat starts at 48:27.

When an event record set in the first week of Regionals stands all the way through the remaining weekends, you know it was an incredible performance.

Kara Webb looked comfortable, poised, and controlled throughout the workout, and she finished the event before any of the other women even made it to the second-to-last bar.

Thuridur Helgadottir becomes first to finish Regional Nate




E2 18:54.38, her heat starts at 1:00:10

People like to say pacing is key for CrossFit events. While many of us understand that from a theoretical point of view, Thuridur Erla Helgadottir applies this concept masterfully.

She was the first of two women to complete Regional Nate out of about 300 Regional competitors.

Katrin Davidsdottir steamrolls Event 6




E6 9:50.18, her heat starts at 1:03:33

Katrin Davidsdottir started Event 6 like a bat out of hell, and continued that grueling rate through the entire workout. She became the only woman to finish Event 6 in under 10 minutes—a breakneck pace that was only matched by five men.

Her pace allowed zero room for wasted movements or transitions. Even more impressive, she moved through her burpees at an astounding clip to finish them in about four minutes. Her ability to stay focused and moving through a set of burpees with so many transitions was critical to her success, and really highlights what makes her such a high-level performer.

Wodapalooza 2020 is officially a wrap. Let’s talk about what went down on the fourth and final day of competition and who’s walking away with the CrossFit Games invites. The Elite individuals and teams competed two events on the Sunday. The first event, ‘Down-Up,’ put athletes through a brutal couplet of heavy deadlifts and bar-facing burpees. The second and final event of the day, ‘Celebrate Life,’ was a chipper that required high-power output and sound strategy.
