I started watching the women's speed snatch ladder late. They showed a little clip of Camille crying. What happened? Is she watching a chance at the podium slip away?

I know CLB gets a bad rap for not getting called on missed reps (squats and pull-ups), but it definitely looked like she got screwed over by her judge.

She got no-repped three times in the first round, but looked like they all could have been to depth. Particularly the second no-rep on the first barbell.

That is frustrating for the athletes. I'm guessing this slowed her down enough that she didn't get past the quarterfinal round?

I also noticed they are using the dead-bounce competition plates. I don't see anyone tripping when they jump over the bar.

^^ they don't air the first round of these sprints for some reason on the ESPN feed. That's why it seemed like it started late (site said it started but didn't show on ESPN til later). They did that last year also

No idea... I'm constantly cycling back and forth between the live feed on ESPN3 running through my Chromecast or watching it on cable.
