Yeah, she has just has freaking twigs for legs, man. :wallbash:

Just because they speak French in some parts of Canada doesn't mean you can't read and understand english. It's not like you Camille LeBlanc with the ****tiest ****ing english grammar in her posts. I swear it's just as bad as the FOBby kids I used to help in the Computer Lab at Berkeley.

Sam is strong but she isn't super clean at the Olympic Lifts. She did manage to qualify to the AO but she bombed out on Snatches and CJ 95. Her snatch has come a long way from this. Her jerk is still rough but 82/100 is pretty good for a 63. If anything she probably isn't that consistent at the higher loads given what her technique looks like.

As big as Sam looks like, she is only 63kg even though she looks bigger than Annie with her guns. Annie is the same height but has a good 7-8kg on her and obviously it's solid mass.

Ya, I saw a video he posted and the doctor said if he wasn't so fit, it could have been deadly. Then I saw the grossest picture of his quad hanging out of his leg! I think Chan is going men's individual, I'll be pulling for him. He said someday that he and Spealler would go master's and he knows that Froning would go master's too! (which is 14 years away for Rich lol)

Interesting setup by Briggs for snatch, never saw anybody do it like that, must be very mobile, Id never guess she is...

Because the fact that english is not my first language you feel the need to bash me...awesome, BTW you missed a word or two in your sentence.

the picture was useless, we've all seen her, so showing a pic of her on the beach really does nothing. I can honestly say everytime I see her compared to other crossfit women she looks thin, especially in the limbs (primarily lower), so this wasn't me picking on her due to injury, this is something i've noticed every time. Just like i've also noticed she doesn't do that great on the more strength and oly oriented stuff.

Anyone see Castro's Instagram?!?!?! Strong implication that doubles and pistols are next. F me......I can't do a pistol. :ranting2:

If it's implicated on his IG, then I would say in Castro head fake tradition, it will be anything but. I think we will see pistols and DU's at some point. Still have HSPU, burpee, box jump, rowing, and wall balls too.

If there is one thing we know about Castro...it is that he loves to fake us out. He always puts rigs up at events and then has us doing burpees, rowers out and it ends up being barbell movements. He loves that. BUT, with that said it would be totally Dave Castro if he put it on his IG to make us think "he won't do it now" and then he does it. :yikes:

We'll find out tomorrow night!

I hear a lot of people saying HSPU will show up this year. I thought the consensus was, in previous years, it wasn't suited to the Open. Why was that, and what's changed?

The fact that we have a scaled division now for all the people that can't do them.
