Only the captain has the ankle timer on him, Froning made sure he was across before their captain.

Still can't believe Noah crapped out so bad on that 2223 WOD

I wonder if Kara hadn't dropped the OH Lunge with one section to go and had gone unbroken, if she would've beaten Alethea Boon for 6th place instead of 7th and gotten enough points for 1st overall. Never give up...

Re: 2017 Games thread

Crazy close on the women.. wow Matt F stomped it again. Glad to see someone beat Rich F team. Seems his team is stacked because peeps will move shop to set up the win at Mayhem.

Highlights- 17 year old 291 Snatch
Bob R 47 year old- Diane 2:17 with all of the transition time.
Shawn R- 4 peat
Dude who saved Will P from drowning and then ran back with him.. should have given the spirit of the games to him.
Matt F just being so dominating.


Low lights- Madison
Not seeing Scott J at the games for the 45+
Matt F demolishing the comp.
CLB injured

2 points were in the game for Tia and Kara.... so we have a new Queen

Did the judge miss and adjustment make the difference for Kara?
I'm not sure how fair that .06 penalty for Kara only doing 72 reps was. How are they to know if she would have had to drop the bar on the next set of 3? At least it didn't affect the final outcome.

Thanks for the mention Vic, was gutted when I see Diane comp up, love that workout.

I think the true low light was JG just doing 9 reps of Diane and standing there. I'm guessing he knew he would come last even if he tried so same points on Diane. And this is the man that was 2nd in the world in the open on the 55s workout with deadlifts and hspu. I was really looking forward to seeing him fail on them.

Yes JG did better than I thought. He is a strong dude. Will say he climbed that rope better than anyone in the masters. Just saying one good thing. Glad it was not a BG and JG show like always.

Re: 2017 Games thread

I thought that the cyclocross was interesting. Did see a over the handlebars total face plant in review. So for 1 person it was very hard and dangerous. Overall would have been cooler to add some obstacles that were more challenging and more on and off the bike stuff.. maybe WI has a park that has this all ready. I think that cycling is a good thing. But a Watt bike might do just as good of job on testing the circle fitness that the bike brings.

I liked the O- coarse better. I liked seeing how physical and balanced some of the peeps were.

Cyclecross gets a solid C in my book. O coarse solid B.

Kind of like what Victor said. Too flat, too few obstacles. The hardest thing about the course was the damp grass. I also don't care for events where an equipment failure can ruin your finish. Being able to fix a thrown chain is not a test of fitness.
