The excitement is palpable in the BROlympic village as we stand less than 36 hours from the 2017 F3 BROlympics opening ceremonies.  The event Q’s have gone to great lengths to guarantee that this will be a #csaup to remember.  In case you’ve been hiding under a rock, here are the details.

Scoring:

In each event, first place receives 100 points, second receives 95, and it continues to fall by 5 points through fifth place, which is worth 80 points.  From sixth to 20th place, the drop is 2 points: sixth is worth 78 points, seventh is 76, and so on.  Then from 21st place on, the drop is 1 point: 21st gets 49 points, 22nd gets 48, etc.  This means that participating in an event guarantees you points, and skipping means leaving points on the table.

During the awards ceremony the top three competitors in each event will be announced, as well as the top “respect” competitor in each event.  The three competitors with the most total points will bring home the hardware.

What to Bring:

  • Shovel flags
  • Any 40-50 lb kettlebells that you have
  • Watch/Phone to time yourself and your partner
  • Water (we will also have some on site)
  • Old workout gear / F3 shirts for the F3 PAX that live at the Charlotte Rescue Mission.  These guys MUCH appreciate our donations and truly wear them with PRIDE.

  1. Update: Weather tomorrow should be great in low 60s! We will have many regions represented, even as far as Columbia. Event Q’s have gone through all the details meticulously to make this event a success, and hope you will join us to participate in some or all of the events, cheer or your fellow F3 brothers, or volunteer. This event is great for both 1st F and 2nd F whichever you want to make it. Hope to see many of you there!

    Event starts promptly at 6am so arrive early for your own warmup, and being used workout clothes for Charlotte Rescue Mission if you have them!
