AC^2 2013 - Another success!
"Community is the product of people working together on problems, of autonomous and collective fulfillment of internal objectives, and of the experience of living under codes of authority which have been set in large degree by the persons involved."
- Robert Nisbet
As it is every year, this definition was once again displayed yesterday, in AC2. Through the tireless work of the volunteers, judges, and beastly equipment crew, the passion of the spectators, the generosity of the affiliates in loaning us their equipment and of all the sponsors who support this event with amazing prizes, and the beautiful displays of athletic determination and grit in the competitors - all for a charitable cause of our internal objective: to change lives and give others a fighting chance. Thank you.
The results of this year's competition are posted below. Congratulations to ALL athletes! You are all winners!
AC2 2013 Scoring:
The overall rank was then determined by a sum of the qualifying rank and the rank on the final WOD. These two values were weighted equally.
Tiebreakers were determined by calculating the standard deviation of the athlete's ranks on all previous workouts and then ranking by lowest standard deviation. This would reward consistent performance across all workouts and not variable performance. This is felt by the organizers of AC2 to best represent the CrossFit goal of GPP. Note that this is essentially the opposite of past Games tiebreakers that reward first place finishes.
The tiebreaker was only applied to determine eligibility for the final WOD and then the top three athletes, other ties were allowed to stand. The Men's Rx'd top three final standing was determined by a contest for most consecutive muscle-ups.
Congratulations to our winners!!!
