The teams have ended day 3! Ute is impressive, there's going to be a battle for first. Too bad that Miranda is hurt, no way Norcal can win now. Rich has done well carrying he team to 4th. It'll be fun go watch tomorrow. My own hometown team is in 5th! Go Grandview!

I missed it, what happened to Miranda?

And the disparity between Mayhem's guys and girls is insane. If they get some great girls to move to their gym or something they'll be unstoppable.

In the two WODs today where they broke the men and women out separately the men got two first place finishes and the women got 37th and 18th.

Something happened to Miranda's knee I believe. It was while she was doing thr 1RM clean and jerk event. Nothing gruesome but she's out.

Rich and Co. will definitely have stronger girls next year!

What a joke. ESPN is airing some WNBA crap instead of the Games so they moved us to ESPNews, which I don't get. Watching online anyway but why do they have a deal with ESPN if they get bumped every single year?

I really feel like from a production point of view, the CF Games are missing alot of visual CGI stuff that would make it ALOT easier to follow and keep it way more exciting.

The best sports franchises cater to non players in their production and presentation.

There's some real basic additions that could be added that I think would really open up its viewership.

Like I just watched the heat 2 of the sprints, 1st run.
- My guys in lane 1, race begins. Can;t tell where lane 1 is, who am I watching
- They begin, I'm watching both ends, trying to guess which end is my guy
- The camera angles continually mean I can't see how ANYONE is doing

Wow, the first heat of girls are really struggling with the pig 2.0. 395 pounds too heavy, Castro?

Top ladies seem to be figuring the pig out. Brutal.

I have been very interested in watching Mayhem's team, for a few reasons. The biggest thing is that the team from my gym competed against them at regionals, and all of our women are stronger than their women - we have stronger women, they have stronger men. Our team missed the Games by 6 points - we had an athlete get sick during the first event and consequently finished last. It would have been so cool to see how we stacked up to them at the Games.

That said, I am really rooting for the to do well, especially now that Oldroyd is hurt. That team oozing graciousness and classiness. We stayed at the same hotel and I talked to several of them every day. I also love that Lauren Neal is a masters athlete training with those guys. She is awesome, and is juggling a full time job and kids but still working her butt off on that team.

Saturday final:

TRIANGLE COUPLET

15-10-6 reps for time of:
Thrusters (165 / 115 lb.)
Bar muscle-ups

Time cap: 10 minutes


What does that have to do with "triangle"?

And we've only seen rings once all week (masters / teens final)

Looks like they have the triangle rig set up. Not sure if the movement (bar MU) will be any different or not.
