Well, it’s safe to say that the last few days have been emotional for the members of SiD HQ… Knee deep in videos, confirming ‘fair’ penalties and preparing for the grand final in November! BUT, we are pleased to announce that we have a finalised leaderboard for Qualifier 3 as well as the confirmed finalists for Strength in Depth 2017.
NOW FOR THE EXPLANATIONS…
QUALIFIER 3 WINNERS
We are pleased to announce that CrossFit Oslo Wolfpack are the Q3 winners, bagging themselves the £1000 prize pot (£500 of which rolled over from Q2).
Upon reviewing Oslo’s videos it was apparent that one of their sub teams during the first round of 300 double unders fell short of 26 reps. This incurred a 3 sec penalty for each missed rep and a total time of 1:18 added to their original 47:30 submitted score. This time penalty is inline with all missed/ failed reps that we have applied during all of the SiD17 qualifier stages.
You may have noticed that CrossFit Bath were initially top of the Q3 leaderboard. However following technical issues with one of their videos, only displaying 261 reps, SiD HQ have penalised the team 1/2 sec for the missed 698 reps that were not featured on the video. This resulted in a time penalty of 5:45 added to their initial sub team time of 11:52. Our commiserations to CrossFit Bath for the bad luck!

STRENGTH IN DEPTH 2017 FINALISTS
This leads us on to the SiD17 Grand Final over the weekend of 4 & 5 November 2017…. Who will be joining us!?
Again, SiD HQ were faced with some challenges here. Some of you may notice that your team has shifted since the unofficial leaderboard was released at 8am on 9th September. The explanation for this could be one of two things.
Firstly, a shift in leaderboard places, whether moving up or down the leaderboard may be due to edits to the leaderboard post the display time at 8am on 9th September. For example, as always some teams had technical issues with the website and therefore emailed SiD HQ their sub teams scores on time prior to the 22:00hrs deadline on Friday 8th September . These teams did not receive a time penalty and their scores were simply updated on the leaderboard. Whilst these teams were not penalised, we had one late score submission for Q3, this resulted in a last place finish with each sub team receiving a time of 45:50 (30 min time cap + 1 sec for every rep).
Secondly, a leaderboard shift may be due to video submissions. It was compulsory for all teams to submit the three videos of their sub teams completing Q3. Some teams submitted 1 or 2 videos, with others not submitting any. In order to fairly resolve and penalise these teams SiD HQ have issued the following time penalties:
- There was 6 teams that failed to supply any videos, they have therefore been penalised with each of their sub team receiving a time score of 45 minutes and 50 seconds. SiD HQ concluded with this time penalty as this is the 30 minute time cap plus 1 sec for every rep of the workout.
- There was only 1 team that failed to supply all videos, submitting 2 videos in total. They have therefore been penalised. The sub team that did not have a video to confirm their submitted time, received a time score of 45 minutes and 50 seconds (30 minute time cap plus 1 sec for every rep of the workout).
We have enforced the above penalties against the necessary teams and the SiD17 Leaderboard is confirmed.

WE ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE FOLLOWING 59 TEAMS, IN QUALIFYING ORDER, WILL RECEIVE A PERSONAL INVITE FROM SiD HQ WITHIN THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.
(59 TEAMS I HEAR YOU CRY!! THIS IS BECAUSE WE HAD A TIE ON THE 58TH SPOT AND THIS WAS THE FAIREST WAY TO DEAL WITH THE OUTCOME!!)
Team Captains please look out for this email and take note of all of the deadline dates. In summary, teams will have until Monday 18th September at 22:00hrs to accept or decline their place at the SiD17 Final. Following this, teams will have until Monday 25th September at 22:00hrs to make their team payment (£900). Should teams decline their place at the grand final, or payment not received prior to the deadline (listed above) SiD HQ will revert to the leaderboard inviting the next ranked team, 59th, 60th….
