2017 Reebok CrossFit Games Team Event: The Bar Is Back!

On Wednesday night, the one-rep max snatch was revealed as one of the individual events at the 2017 Reebok CrossFit Games. This morning, Dave Castro surprised us with another announcement: The teams will also chase a 1RM.

The teams will find their 1RM clean and jerk at the 2017 CrossFit Games. In 2015, the teams took on the 1RM clean and jerk in two separate scored events, one being the total women's weight and the other the total men's weight. During that event, CrossFit NorCal's Miranda Oldroyd injured her knee, effectively ending NorCal's potential championship run. 

This year, NorCal is back with a slightly different roster but should still put up a fight for the top spots in both the men's and women's totals.

Another team to watch out for is, of course, CrossFit Mayhem. While they took first place on the men's side in 2015, they took last place on the women's side that year. Expect them to come back strong with a top five finish on both the men's and women's totals.
