[QUOTE=Miles Roberts;1251041]She, among a ton of other huge names haven't posted 15.5 scores yet. No Lauren Fisher, Rich Froning, Matt Fraser, and a ton of others. Check back tonight or tomorrow.

In fact, if you search for her on the leaderboard, it'll take you down to a group of the big-name females who are in the top 100ish of the open, but haven't posted scores yet. Right there is Camille, Emily Bridgers, Stacie Tovar, Dani Horan, Lauren Fisher, Julie Foucher, etc.[/QUOTE]

She had a score but must have withdrawn it. She did the live announcement so her score has been there since Thursday evening.

if they don't like it they can sponsor him. seriously, if Reebok or HQ has a problem with guys like Fraser or Bridges, they can start paying them so they don't have to go to companies like Nike to make a living.

Someone will tons of money should pay Froning to do one more year. Matt Fraser is a beast and it would be amazing to watch these 2 battle it out again. Especially know that Matt has more experience with CF.

Matt Fraser still has to win the games at least 4 times in a row before the king is dead.

This was only the first step in what needs to be at least a four year plan for Matt Fraser.

Will he do it..... nope......maybe this year but from there it will be difficult.

We have two Master's Women 45-49 in my gym who completed all of the workouts Rx. One is ranked in the 130's worldwide, while the 2nd is ranked about 230. I find it frustrating that the athlete's who scaled in the Master's division on 15.3 are able to place ahead of the 2nd athlete, but more to the point, that they can steal here spot in the Master's Qualifier, which will be letting scaled athlete's compete. If there are more than 200 athletes who completed all 5 weeks Rx, this makes absolutely zero sense to me.

Yes, there is an argument to be said for destroying the other workouts to the degree that you are ranked ahead of the women even with the scaled score, but at the same time, if that was the case, wouldn't Sam Briggs have been invited to the games last year even though the fell short on her handstand walk??

Rant over. But I would like to hear others thoughts.

They said you couldn't scale and go to the next round for masters, so people didn't scale, then they changed their mind after the fact. I think it's really messed up. They should give those that didn't scale the option to redo the workout scaled now.
