OCRCrossfit Tahoe Throwdown Challenge 2019

Watch Facebook Livestreams for this event here!

From the mind of Hunter McIntyre, something very special is taking place in two weeks in Tahoe.

As most of you know, OCR’s Hunter took on The Crossfit Games back in August as a wildcard entry. While mixing it up with the best of the world in Crossfit, he asked some of them to meet him on his turf at this year’s Spartan Tahoe Beast.

We aren’t sure exactly what is happening as of this printing, but we are going to go ahead and call it the OCRCrossfit Tahoe Throwdown Challenge 2019.  Update 8:47am – **This just in. Spartan is officially calling this event – King Of The Mountain. (I prefer our original title)

Here is what we do know:

3 OCR Athletes and 3 Crossfit Athletes will take on The Spartan Beast course in the morning. That’s 13 miles plus 30 obstacles at elevation. Then in the early evening, the men will compete in a WOD style workout. At the end of the day, we add up some form of scoring from the 4 workouts plus the Beast and crown a winner.

On the OCR side we will have:

Hunter – The Bulk Pony Himself. Is there anything else we need to say?

Isaiah Vidal – The Slightly Bulkier Pony. Bit of a tornado that has scrapes with Hunter, Atkins, and AirForce Ken over the years. With over 80 OCR podiums, he has more than any other American.

Matt Kempson – Another bulky little meatball. – Recently won the Epicly Epic Alex/Cassidy Cash Showdown at NorAm. Also recently known as the inventor of the Kempson Obstacle.

On the Crossfit Side:

Sean Sweeney – Known as The Crossfit Cowboy (do Crossfit stars have names like Ninjas?) – Can deadlift 565 pounds.

Jacob Heppner – Makes videos with his dog. 2nd to Hunter in 2018 Tough Mudder X. 3rd in the world in The 2019 Crossfit Open. Multiple top 10 finishes at The Crossfit Games.

September 16, 2019 Update: 

2 females have been added to the mix.

Corinna Coffin –  Corinna won Tough Mudder’s TMX in 2017 and was the runner up in 2018. She was a Crossfit Games Team athlete 2018. This year, she came back to race Spartan Stadion Series and finished 2, 1, 1 in consecutive performances.

Emma Chapman – Her team, Central Beasts, won the Strength In Depth competition, then placed 5th at the 2019 Crossfit Games. She also won the Tough Mudder TMX in 2018 and appeared on Million Dollar Mile earlier this year.

Along with the individual scores, we are being told there will be some form of team scoring tallied, with the 4 CrossFit athletes versus the 4 “Spartans”.

We posted a conversation with Hunter last week to explain more about this concept.
