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.
--- title: "CrossFit Regionals 2018 Visualizations: Week 1" author: "Landon Lehman" date: 2018-05-30 categories:  tags: ["crossfit", "visualization"] --- 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.
