[QUOTE=Matthew Williams;1255028]Great battle at the end of SQT (Men's 45-49) between Craig Eisman and fellow board member Scott Jenkins! Really thought Scott had him there after Eisman was pulled back for a no rep.[/QUOTE]

Vic McQuaide is also active on the forum, and is competing in that same division. Scott and Vic are in 12th and 13th place after three events with four events to go.

OK, take this comment with a grain of salt, which is to say, all these people are awesome....but....

Anyone see Amanda Allen in the Triplet? I hate to say it, but she looked "paunchy," not at all like she's in Games shape (by the standards she's set for herself via her past performance) and finished WAY back. Looks like she came back in the other two workouts, now up to 6th place, but historically, hasn't she - like - flat roasted her competitors at the Games? Is everyone catching up, or the opposite?

Earlier thie year, she said in an interview that her preparation was far from optimal this year.



Watched some of the masters yesterday, I was amazed of the bodies those dudes and gals still have at 50+. Great motivation for all of us.


Regarding the individuals : CLB & Fraser will crush the competition.

My top 5 for the men :
Fraser
Panchik
Bailey
Ohlsen
Parker

My top 5 for the women :
Leblanc-Bazinet
Sigmundsdottir
Webb
Letendre
Bridgers


For the teams : Norcal will probably take it this year.

Thanks, Ludovic. Wonder if everything is ok with her (injury, personal life, etc..)?

I agree, I kept saying, "holy cow, that guy's 55?!? That guy's 48??!" Great standards to strive for.

the live marker helps; they just need a way to identify all the athletes and not just the ones the commentators recognize.

Both.

Not every athlete is pushing to stay ahead of the curve. Amanda Allen is still in the top 1% of all CrossFitters. Maybe she didn't prioritize training above all other aspects of life this year. She still qualified for the Games and is doing well at the competition, but not enough to leave the competition behind. CrossFit the sport has developed to the point that we see the denouement of top athletes. Think of of Kristan Clever - did well for herself at Regionals this year, but didn't qualify for the Games.

Right now Allen is in 6th place with four events to go. She's still in the running to win. Don't count her out yet.

I'm having a goofy problem with the ESPN3 feed.

The main window loads indefinitely with the thumbnail of Annie. It never gets to the video feed.

[ATTACH]13847[/ATTACH]

I can see the video feed only in a tiny window to the side of the event schedule.

[ATTACH]13848[/ATTACH]

Audio is fine.

I tried this in a couple different browsers and had the same issue.

*edit*
Huh. Now the feed for the men's event is working normally. Weird.

two miles on these paddle boards is frickin' far.
most are doing prone position rather than on knees.

looks like some of the boards have gopros attached.
