One thing I would do if I was training for the games is to focus on proper acceptable rom. I think most of your stuff looks good, but I don't think you are locking out on your dead lifts during metcons. You are knocking them out really fast, but if you get to competition and your reps aren't counting, its going to hurt.

I'm not even sure that your rom on the deadlifts isn't acceptable. It just looks to me that you aren't locking out.
Range of motion is definitely short on deadlifts (lock-out at top), overhead squats (depth), thrusters (overhead position), and handstand push-ups (arms fully locked out at top). Fix the details. Focus on perfect movement. You are, without a doubt, strong enough to be competitive, and from your squat clean video it is clear that you're flexible enough to achieve proper depth. Do it every time.
