Re: 2016 Games Banter...starting off with Murph

Right! I misunderstood which workout you were talking about.

Here's Barber on the Dog Sled:

I was thinking the sled pull at "The End" workout of...

Re: 2016 Games Banter...starting off with Murph

I was in the stadium to watch that one. They did the same workout three times, each time the tip cap was increased. Barber sandbagged the first two (10th and 12th out of 12 guys), saving his energy...

Re: 2016 Games Banter...starting off with Murph

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

By the way, I'm the same height as Rich Froning... and 40 pounds of muscle lighter...

Re: 2016 Games Banter...starting off with Murph

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...

Re: 2016 Games Banter...starting off with Murph

It seems like they've got the athlete's timing chips linked to the leaderboard on the games website. The times are being posted almost immediately. Cool! :highfive:

Re: 2016 Games Banter...starting off with Murph

They are doing Murph early in the morning so heat is less of an issue compared to last year.

Best women's times are three minutes faster than last year. I think a big part of that improvement is...

Re: 2016 Games Banter...starting off with Murph

It's like you answered my question before I asked it! Amazing.

I wonder what happened with Jennifer Smith. She has DNF on the leaderboard.

Re: 2016 Games Banter...starting off with Murph

The deadlift ladder is much heaver than 2009. :yikes: I think it maxed out at 500 and a lot of guys finished the whole ladder. I don't see that happening this year.

Re: 2016 Games Banter...starting off with Murph

I guessed right because I figured:
- they have to be back to Carson tomorrow for more events there, so they won't go too far
- 10th Games is probably going to the original ranch to relive history...

Re: 2016 Games Banter...starting off with Murph

They're boarding a flight to San Jose. Either one of our guesses could still be right.

Re: 2016 Games Banter...starting off with Murph

You might be right! :yikes:

Except... why fly? Couldn't they find a shooting range within driving distance to accommodate an event?

Re: 2016 Games Banter...starting off with Murph

I hope they do the handstand walk in the soccer stadium. I'd love to see someone go unbroken. If they do it in the tennis stadium with lanes and built in rest, it's not as interesting.
