It's an error that the person who validated the score SURELY should have caught before putting it through, and that the athlete should have addressed by now as well. I found her FB profile, as I was researching whether or not there was ANY chance she did the lift (like, she was an actual competitive weightlifter or something). I'm tempted to message her.

Well I tried video taping my C&J of 520 but my camera failed last night in my dream... maybe next year I'll get it to work...

Still amazes me how people validate such awful scores... It is just "golden"

Completely agree with first couple of minutes. Folks that tried to sandbag 15.1 and then crush 15.1A were lame indeed and completely against CF spirit. Thank god HQ took care of that, but still...shame on those people for trying to play around the rules no matter how impressive their C&Js are.

Yes people who validate the scores that are blatantly wrong.. maybe should have to re do the judge test. Our division has a person c and j 335# and listed at #225 on his bio.. makes you wonder how many other screw ups are in the mix. Some people come out of nowhere to either win a workout or do near the tops.. you look at last years comp and they did some serious hard dam work, programming must of been king.. send me the coaches name would like to hire.

End of rant..

I would also like that one but I see some more A/B events coming. You may get something like this for 7 minutes and then something else.

[QUOTE=Alex Burden;1249831]I would like to see OHS, not heavy but just the movement from the start. This will put a stop to those athletes that go Rx because they can't even do the movement so they go scaled.

CFHQ needs to divide the field so we end up in the right group.. That's my view on the subject.[/QUOTE]

CFHQ should issue minimum guidelines for the RXed division. Max workout times on benchmarks as RXed, skills required (eg muscleups, pistols), minimum 1rm's on lifts.

Why? If they can't do the movement and you can, good for you, you'll place higher. I don't understand why anyone should be discouraged from going Rx regardless of the movements.

I'd rather be last in rx than first in scaled. Just my opinion.
