On Episode 371 of CrossFit Radio, host Justin Judkins interviewed the athletes atop the CrossFit Games Open Leaderboard after workouts 15.1 and 15.1A: Maude Charron and Nick Urankar. This episode was webcast on March 4, 2015.

3:01 Maude Charron was virtually unknown until she crushed 15.1 and 15.1A to edge out defending CrossFit Games champion Camille Leblanc-Bazinet by 4 points in the overall standings. Charron, who has a background in gymnastics and acrobatic training for circus performance, talked about finding CrossFit and lifting heavy for the first time. She described her reaction when she heard Games Director Dave Castro announce the first workouts, and she detailed a strategy that included two attempts at the paired challenges. To close, she shared her thoughts on the rest of the competition season.

13:40 Nick Urankar competed in the CrossFit Games in 2012, and his performance in the first week of the Open shows he’s working hard to qualify again in 2015. Urankar said he decided to redo 15.1 and 15.1A at his wife’s suggestion, and he talked about the adjustments he made after his first attempt. Urankar is happy to be atop the standings but knows a lot of work still separates him from his ultimate goal. Sharing some strategy, the Central East athlete explained what he looks for as top competitors perform the workouts immediately after they’re announced. The affiliate owner closed by talking about how CrossFit 061 in Granger, Indiana, has grown and will soon be moving into a bigger building.
