Just because he is built for it doesn't deny the fact that he has to put in the work to maximize his potential. From a data perspective, I love to see him do well on these deadlift workouts. It answers the question, "If all the top athletes perform at their peak, who has the advantage for X, Y, or Z workout or movement." Like seeing Irving Hernandez win 14.2. He is made for pull-ups - low bodyweight and high upper body strength.
Did you watch the latest update show on the Games site? He said he was out to eat with a bunch of friends when the announcement came out and they all just looked at him and started laughing.
I love when a WOD comes out and it sounds like it was programmed just for you.
