Background: “The Standard” was the last of 12 workouts of the 2019 CrossFit Games (Championships).

Dave Castro @thedavecastro, Director of the CrossFit Games, posted some insight into the origins of this WOD a couple of weeks after the end of the 2019 CrossFit Games:

"About 11-12 years ago I was teaching at a L1 seminar at CrossFit San Diego. During our lunch break I talked to some of the other staff about an idea I had. I wondered if any CrossFitters could finish those 3 benchmarks in under 10 minutes. I postulated that being capable of that accomplishment would be a great standard for a well rounded elite CrossFit athlete. Back then a few people played around with it. There is a YouTube video of [Rob Orlando] @crossfitrobo taking it on. For a number of reasons it never made it into the Games. Until [2019]. And as the final. I was very pleased with how it played out and how it capped off the 2019 Games. Every year we have a lot of ideas for good tests and events and often times they get pushed off to the next year, sometimes a few years later, sometimes never. In this case it was a decade later."
