Heat 4 of women's double DT is like watching House Targaryen exercising

Holy crap! Mat Fraser has a 110 point lead over 2nd place.

Men's side is looking like a blow out but women's is really close! I don't think Wells will stay up there. My guess is TCT, The Dottir's, Briggs and Webb will be in some order in the top 6. Pretty close to what everyone has said all along.

Fraser has been amazing, one horse race which is impressive for this field

Ladies comp is going to be more exciting

so far i am disappointed how familiar all of the events have been using various permutations of standard crossfit movements and past events

crossfit is getting just so specific, it's become more technically specific than the decathlon

Now the gap is nearly 140 points. This looks a lot like Froning's performances from 3-4 years ago.

I was so impressed with Josh Bridges on the squat pyramid event. He is smaller than other athletes, but his training and determination are intense. You could see in his face that he was struggling through that event, but he pushed through and finished it.

His catch and save on the last rep completely defied physics

You're right. Bridges is short and solid muscle. Small may not be the right word.

everyone keeps saying Bridges is a small athlete and boohoo...

his listed weight is 170-175...at 5'5...

Mat Fraser 5'7/190
Scott Panchik 5'9/187
Ben Smith 5'11/195
Alex Anderson 5'10/210
Alex Vigneault 5'11/205
Noah Ohlsen 5'7/188
Lucas Parker 5'8/187
Dan Bailey 5'8/180

so REALLY he's not a small athlete...he's a SHORT athlete. His weight is comparable to his competitors when you take into account height.

Its not like he's Spealler who was short and tiny.
