2017 Games thread

Who's going to win.. can anyone beat Matt F, CF Mayhem, Katrin?

Everyone's going to be Run/Swim/Run.. anyone at this level can't swim or can't make it.. all the masters are going to swim also.. about time right?

Any db/dip fast complexes?

Madison.. flop or will it be great?

Re: 2017 Games thread

I doubt anyone will beat Matt F. The women to me is a little more open. I think this could be Tia's year.

Masters and swimming, glad I am not going, I am a terrible swimmer. Bad enough in the pool let alone in open water. But yes, this will be a good test for all.

Madison will be fine. Really only CFers are interested in the Games and they will love it.

Re: 2017 Games thread

I think Fraser is pretty untouchable right now. He's on top until he decides to stop.

There's probably 10 women that could win the Games. Will be fun to watch.

I like the move to the midwest even though I can't get there this year. It shouldn't make much of a difference if any at all.

If you're in the Games at any level, you should be proficient at every movement, including swimming.

Re: 2017 Games thread

1. Fraser
2. Olsen
3. Vellner

1. Sara Sig
2. Katrin Dav
3. Thibault

1. Mayhem
2. Wasatch Brutes
3. Back Bay

I'll always pull for josh. If he can string some consistency together he has the potential.

Fraser is a monster. He is Rich without the small holes he had, it seems.

I think Mayhem will have a tough time this year but that "Froning factor" right...

Not that I have insider info but I bet Sara is hungry. Really hungry.

I think Matt has this one again this year, i do not see any real challengers.

I am really hoping Sara takes it this year, she is so happy all of the time and now that she is at Mayhem working out, Rich has given her some of his secrets

Teams... Mayhem must be the favorite and i believe Rich has made the whole team work on their weak spots.

When it comes to Madison..... the athletes make the games and give it the vibe and the fans will be as crazy as usual. Watching the games on youtube won't make any difference to us

Maybe the weather is different at this time of year compared to the old venue which may make a difference for everyone.

I am looking forward to it.......

Murph should be a bit easier in the cool Madison air.

Re: 2017 Games thread

First event, run, swim, run..

If this is like a triathlon and they need to transition through the movements then this will be key and those shorts and shoes will chafer all over the place.
