There was probably numbers on the caps - used for identification.

It's the same with triathlons

Biggest mover in the mens division was Khan Porter - jumped up SEVENTEEN places after this event. Still definitely any-ones game.

The girls final today should be fun to watch (tho they haven't announced the final event yet)

14-15yo division is separated by 2 points for 1st and 2nd
16-17yo is separated by 6 points.

As a non USA resident I have to say coverage and options to watch REALLY are horrible this year.

I couldn't watch anything live and I still can't watch events that have happened already...speaking solely about individuals.

From stats I saw I can honestly say I was surprised by the run and how poorly many did on the DL

nice day for a run, and pullups, and pushups, and squats, and more running.

Candice Wagner up in front early for the run. Jen Smith just walking...looks like trouble with foot / ankle.

Briggs still out front. starting 3rd round of pullups, no sign of fatigue.

sara sigmundsdottir breathing real heavy.

cameramen (or whoever's controlling the footage) think there's only 4 or 5 people in this event. almost 20 minutes in and only shown briggs, 3 dottirs, and jen smith. oh, and now a tia clair toomey sighting.

*edit*

i mean seriously, they're doing 600 reps; you can include a few reps from each athlete
