About the wod
Background: “DCC Sanctional 19.8” was the 8th of 11 WODs for the 2019 Dubai CrossFit Championship Sanctional. The Dubai CrossFit® Championship is a four-day CrossFit, Inc.-sanctioned competition taking place in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates with the goal of bringing together individual and team athletes from around the world to compete in the spirit of fitness.
Workout #8 introduced… “New movements for some but these three — flying push-ups, deck squats, and A jumps — are all classic tests from Dubai’s earliest competition days.
“All three of those movements, as well as the reverse grip chest-to-bar pull-up are new to official CrossFit events.
“We wanted to give them a feel of the origins of Dubai CrossFit Championship,” said Saud Al Shamsi, director of the DCC.
“Event 8 was appropriately named “DCF Original” as an ode to the origins of the competition. All three of these movements were programmed in the first Dubai Fitness Championship back in 2012, and were regularly programmed through 2014.” themorningchalkup.com
