Did they say why it changed?

Others - I know it would be wrong, just playing devils advocate...sometimes I wonder...

No, the official site has said nothing yet, it was just a load of people commenting on noticing that she had dropped from 5th to 23rd in the skills event.

Desperate situations call for desperate measures?

the final 3 events just announces are a crazy long chipper 3 times - the first two are as far as you can get in a set time, the 3rd is all the way thru for time + pulling the sled across the floor.

Re: CF Games 2011 General Thread

i didn't really catch what the last 3 workouts were, they're going to be connected like last year and involve a lot of different movements

Re: CF Games 2011 General Thread

The official scoreboard still says Kristan tied for fourth on Skills 1 and got second on Skills 2. I'm a huge Annie supporter, but if Kristan is better and wins, who cares is she looks a little more butch? If Annie wins, I want it to be because she's the best, not because people think the events were geared toward her because she's a better "face for Crossfit." She and Julie will still be faces of crossfit, pretty ones at that, no matter where they land in the top heap.

No one is talking about the men and their attractiveness or implying that they are on steroids. It's frustrating to be talking about the men's form and bodyweight strengths versus not only talking about these things with the women, but also who should win over who because they're prettier, more feminine, don't look like they've been juicing.

Now don't get me wrong, I LOVE that a bunch of our top girls are gorgeous. Annie is just about the cutest person alive as far as I'm concerned (and I'm a straight girl) so I understand the desire to talk about how hot the women are. Hell, I don't particularly mind looking at Rich Froning either. But let's have that be a bonus, shall we, not a reason they should win.

That sounds painful, but with Froning's engine, even if he doesn't finish first, I don't see any movement that will cost him the games.

I predict Speal or Bridges to win the final event however.
