How strong are Crossfitters?

Not as strong as powerlifters, but this ain't bad for non-specialists:

In addition to Spealler, each of the winners of the divisions on Friday posted totals in the weightlifting competition that could qualify them for the American Open.
(From the CF/USAW Open coverage. http://weightlifting.teamusa.org/new...the-year/38853 WFS)

And since I'm posting, I've gotta give props to Lynnwood Crossfit's Abi Grove, who totaled 128kg in the women's 58kg division, and missed the podium by one lousy point overall. Way to be, Abi!

Re: How strong are Crossfitters?

So how did this competition go overall?

I figured the weightlifters would be good at the weightlifting and the crossfitters good at the crossfit while elite athletes from both sides would be able to cross-over and do reasonably well.
