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.

great video - I love seeing the girls put it all on the line.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the idea of every second counts and a staggered start to the final WOD with everybody knowing exactly what they have to do to win.

I'm sure there's a thousand reasons why it would be too tough to do at the 2010 Games but how cool would it be.

Great video! I was there to see so many of these awesome moments. The one that stands out....the small girl at the end (sorry I know they showed her name but I haven't had my coffee yet). The first thing you notice about her is obviously her stature. She was standing among giants. Then you notice her great smile, drive, and passion. To walk into that last event, in contention to place, and do 20 reps, snatch, at your PR, is simply the most incredible thing I saw. I was in the stands in front of her watching every rep. When the crowd erupted, that was her moment, placing or not. Awesome.

I agree. Thought the exact same thing while watching. Good call on using a fun track at the beginning and something more epic at the end.
