What is Linda? Data Cleaning Linda Finish and Bodyweight (Men) Linda Finish and Bodyweight (Women) What is Linda? Linda is the name of a CrossFit benchmark workout. The original form of the workout is 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps of the triplet
deadlift at 1.5 times bodyweight bench press at bodyweight clean at 0.75 times bodyweight Linda was included in the 2018 CrossFit regionals in a standardized form. Based off the average bodyweight of CrossFit games athletes, it was 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps of the triplet (weights listed are male/female)
The CrossFit Regionals are finished and the Games athletes have been selected! Here are the visualizations for the third and final week of the competition, containing the Atlantic, Meridian, and Pacific Regionals. As in the previous 2 weeks, everything was done using R. Also, just like last week with the Latin America Regional, I chose to include all top 5 athletes even in the case of the Meridian Regional which had only 4 CrossFit Games qualifying spots.
Week 3 of the CrossFit Regionals is currently underway (you can watch online here), and I am just finishing up some visualizations for Week 2. I’m also looking forward to when regionals are finished and I can do some cross-regional comparisions.
Week 2 contained competitions for the Central, Latin America, and West regions. I will follow the same format I did for Week 1: first showing event finishes for all the regions, then cumulative points.
There is one weekend of CrossFit Regionals competition left in the 2018 season, and I thought it would be interesting to do some visualizations in order to get practice using R. I scraped the data from the CrossFit Games website and used the library jsonlite to parse it.
There were 3 regionals during the first weekend of competition (May 18-20): South, Europe, and East. I first decided to look at event finishes.
