Apparently Jen Smith turned her ankle, didn't finish the run and didn't do the dead lift. However she did compete in the first heat of event 3 taking the fastest time in that heat.

Really sucks that Bill Grundler is out of the competition. He just didn't play it smart on the max squat clean and ended up not meeting the minimum requirement. Too bad as he was tied for 1st place going in to this event.

Re: 2016 Games Banter...starting off with Murph

i think that's one of the things they could still improve on -- spreading out the screen time for the athletes. it really sucks for them that they worked that hard to get there and not one second of a mention or screen time for some of them. i think in the first or 2nd teen event, they had a close up on maybe 4 or 5 athletes.

i mean, even a camera pan/swoop across all of them while they're lined up at the start would be an improvement. they didn't even do that.

Re: 2016 Games Banter...starting off with Murph

Its all part of the comp. Bill made a huge blunder. Short ROM the 275# and getting that no rep. Then letting the EGO come in and not getting any score. Was a very interesting event.. I am surprised that he was not able to drop the hammer on everyone like he does in the Open and MQ. Hopefully the announcers will give the rest of the field some respect and not mar the event with Bill G stories and the event is less than without him now. Don't worry we all love Bill but we all also want someone else to win at the same time. Just haters we are. Maybe they will turn the attention on why they gave his little brother such hype when he got 20th place last year and this year his met cons are near the trailing end

Re: 2016 Games Banter...starting off with Murph

The comments on the live feed are painful. Constant whining about the fact it's on facebook live and how terrible the coverage is. We're given bonus live coverage and the response is complaining about it not being good enough.

Re: 2016 Games Banter...starting off with Murph

After 4 events there is already a 50 point gap between 2nd and 3rd for the men!!

Matt F and Brent F are solidly at the top!
