Today, the 2014 CrossFit Games Open officially started with Dave Castro's live announcement of workout 14.1. The workout kicks off five weeks of CrossFit Games Open competition leading up to Regionals and the CrossFit Games.

14.1

Marcus Hendren and NorCal CrossFit's Garret Fisher competed head to head at CrossFit North Atlanta to demonstrate and record the first scores for 14.1. The shoulder-burning workout was a repeat of 11.1, the first-ever CrossFit Games Open workout.

AMRAP 10 minutes

30 double unders

15 snatches (75#/55#)

Score: Total number of repetitions

Hendren vs. Fisher

Hendren and Fisher both finished their first round at :55 seconds and used a muscle snatch technique. Fisher began pulling away on his fifth round, where Hendren broke his unbroken snatches. Fisher went unbroken through both movements until the end of his seventh round.

Marcus Hendren: 358

Garret Fisher: 373

The top score in 2011 was 443 repetitions, by three-time CrossFit Games champion Rich Froning. With Froning in competition for his fourth straight CrossFit Games title, it's unlikely that Hendren's and Fisher's scores will stay atop the leaderboards for long.

Largest CrossFit Games Open

Over 190,000 have registered for the CrossFit Games Open so far this year; over 100,000 athletes are first-time participants. In 2011, about 27,000 athletes registered for the first-ever CrossFit Games Open.

Though it's become increasingly more difficult to qualify for Regionals with more professional CrossFit athletes emerging every day, the growth of CrossFit as a sport and this year's rule changes clearly haven't affected enthusiasm for CrossFit Games Open competition.
