Team Reebok East has won the 2014 CrossFit Team Series and will soon receive a check for $30,000.
Ben Smith, Scott Panchik, Stacie Tovar and Emily Bridgers united to form an unstoppable team. These athletes pushed the edge of human performance on four of the 12 events (Events 4, 7, 11, 12).
Even with CrossFit Games champions chasing after them, Team Reebok East was able to win these events with significant margins over the next best teams.
Team Reebok East’s highs were high, and its lows were never very low. On top of the four event wins, Team Reebok East piled on two second-place event finishes, three thirds, one fourth, one seventh, and one ninth (4-3-2-1, 9-2-1-7, 3-3-1-1).
Through its consistency, Team Reebok East won two of the three competitions and took second on the other. With 4 points, Team Reebok East claimed the win over Rogue Fitness Red (6 points) and Rogue Fitness Black (8 points).
Three Reebok teams—East, North, West—two Rogue teams, two Progenex teams, and three CrossFit affiliate teams claimed the top 10 spots on the Rx Division Leaderboard. Each of these teams have earned a chunk of the $150,000 prize purse.
Many of the teams are in the same position now as they were before Competition 3 began, but a few traded positions on the Leaderboard.
Team Reebok West climbed three positions from 10th to seventh, and PRGNX DarkHorse climbed from fifth to fourth. These shifts earned those teams another $3,000 each.
CrossFit Boynton Beach dropped from ninth to 20th overall, opening up a spot for CrossFit CDR Redlands.
