The North Central competition was the first regional event of the 2010 CrossFit Games season, with 50 women vying for only four spots at the big show in Los Angeles.
Held April 30-May 2 in Castle Rock, Colo., the regional featured four events:
WOD 1: Max ground to overhead.
WOD 2: 1,440-meter run.
WOD 3: 3 rounds of a 500-meter row, 12 overhead squats (75 lb.) and 50 double-unders.
WOD 4: 10 snatches (95 lb.), 20 chest-to-bar pull-ups, 30 stick jumps (20 inches), 40 ball slams (30 lb.), 30 stick jumps, 20 chest-to-bar pull-ups, 10 snatches.
WODs 3 and 4 separated the field, with only 23 athletes able to complete all four workouts. Of those 23, Jasmine Dever emerged victorious, giving her a two-year string of regional wins. Dever placed first overall in last year’s Rocky Mountain Qualifier but gave up her spot in order to compete on the Affiliate Cup Team from Front Range CrossFit. Stace Tover, second overall this year, will also be making a return trip to the Games, where she placed 36th in 2009. Kelly Jo Smith and Jessica Hellyer also punched tickets to the Home Depot Center.
