Re: evidence not to do more endurance work?

Graham Holmberg was already quite strong. The lesson, as always, is work on your weaknesses. The interesting comparison I guess was why a guy like Rob Orlando, who is probably the strongest guy in the Games this year, and who also was causing quite a stir by demonstrating his increased metcon capacity in the WODs leading up to the Games (and dominance in Regionals), didn't do quite as well as Graham. I guess the answer is the skill emphasis, but honestly most of the stuff was staple movements so I'm still somewhat shocked that some of the top people, who are hitting 3+ WODs per day quite often didn't set aside time to just play with technical things.
