I recently rewatched the rope climb event and to me the no rep cost her a full round. She took time to regathering herself before re-attempting and it seems like it was about the amount of time to run down and back. If that's accurate she would have beaten Fisher on that WOD and while that difference alone wouldn't send her to the Games, it would have made the final event an actual race.
