The Leaderboard, presented by Western Digital, shows how you rank in relation to your peers.
Let’s go from left to right.
The first number on the far left is your overall rank. You’ll see a 1 for first, 2 for second, etc. Your overall rank tells you how you rank in relation to your peers across all the workouts.
The second number, shown in parentheses, is your point total. The Open operates on a point-per-place scoring system. Your point total equals the sum of your ranks on each of the workouts. For example, Jamie Greene took third on Workout 16.1, 11th on Workout 16.2, and third on Workout 16.3, so her point total is determined by the equation 3 + 11 + 3 = 17 points. Your point total determines your overall rank. In a points-per-place scoring system, athletes want as FEW points as possible. (Later in the season, the scoring changes to a points table where first earns 100 points, second earns 95 points, etc. In a points table scoring system, athletes want as MANY points as possible.)
The workout columns show the athlete’s workout rank followed by their workout score in parentheses. For example, Samantha Briggs took second on 16.1 with a score of 348 reps. If you hover over a score, a box will appear that provides more information about that score. In this case, it will tell you that Briggs’s 348 reps on 16.1 break down into over 13 full rounds of the workout. You can also see who judged the workout and the name of the affiliate where the workout was performed. If you’re on a Team Leaderboard, it will tell you which three men and three women contributed to the team’s score.
