Let the games begin
Our CrossFit community is fortunate to have some of our athletes competing in this year's Bellingham highland games. Some of the gear used in competition was brought in for all to tinker with. As summer comes upon us we will be finding a field for throwing stuff...
28#, 42#, 56# weight for height (WFH), weight for distance (WFD). Open stone. Braemar stone and 16# hammer.
At each game there's one light weight for distance and one heavy weight for distance, then the heavy is also thrown for height. In men's novice and master's divisions, the heavy is 42 pounds. In amateur A, B, and Pro, the heavy is 56 pounds. For women, the weight is 14 pounds for distance, 28 pounds for distance and height.
