    Shouldn’t we be having this embedded somewhere?
    Might as well put the fact we have a team to good use.

      I’m not a fan of this leader board Steve. The girls are misrepresented due to the Clean and Jerk weights being directly compared across both genders. At least with the metcons girls get to move lighter weights thereby making it a relatively fair contest but not giving any allowance on max effort lifting scores is, in my opinion, unfair.

        True, but then the thing is unfair anyway (using absolute weights instead of percentage of bodyweight).

          This is a debate that has been around since CrossFit began. Occasionally you will see bodyweight factored into the scoring, which it is to a small degree in 15.1a, but generally there are simply too many variables in CrossFit to create a completely level playing field. How do you factor bodyweight into metcons where gymnastic and mono structural “cardio” (running, skipping, rowing, swimming etc) components play a part? CrossFit HQ has even rejected the idea of reducing the weight of Benchmark and main site workouts for females. The benchmark is simply the benchmark, male or female, it’s all meant to be the same weight. However, most affiliates have taken it upon themselves to introduce lighter weights for females – it is usually about 70% of the actual benchmark weight. This is not HQ’s doing. “Fran” for example should be performed at 95#, male or female, it is what it is, but most affiliates designate the weight at 65# for females. Only at competition level does HQ allocate different weights to female athletes.

          My point is that it’ll never be completely fair – tall/short, flexible/inflexible, genetic differences in muscle fibre type etc etc, but I think allowing for male/female differences is easy enough and worthwhile where weightlifting is concerned.

      Anyway, it’s all easily solved by creating Male / Female Leaderboards.
