she was out last year with a back injury but trust me, she is legit and she is a BEAST. also, this is the same exact number that Neal Maddox got on the same workout last year and there is a video of that one so you can see what 323 looks like

Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Anyone know if there's a rule against having your judge or 3rd person settle the athlete's rings when they come off of muscle-ups? Apparently they were doing this in the NorCal CF live stream today...

Per http://media.crossfit.com/games/pdf/...Book130130.pdf (WFS) (and mentioned in the on-line judges course):

Judges are instructed not to touch competition equipment or move
equipment during a workout unless the equipment will interfere with
another Athletes performance or if there is a legitimate safety concern

Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

I didn't want to start a thread about this, but I figured it applied to this thread, so here it is. I got my first muscle-up today. I've actually done six total today (I strung my first two together). I have been working so long at being able to do one, when I finally got into the dip position I just wanted to sit there for a little while and relish it. Now I have extra motivation toget through Karen and the double-unders quicker.

I'm pretty sure Sam Briggs has been posting her videos, and they were SUPER legit both times so far. Very impressive!

She is an amazing athlete.

Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Yeah, about Sam Briggs. She is a MACHINE ! I watched her 13.2 video. Her ROM was awesome and technique and efficiency of movement were top notch.

As an aside. did 13.3 this morning and got 252 ! Pretty happy with that score. Had a strategy on the wall balls and stuck with it the whole time. Maybe would do it differently next time to try and get deeper into the MUs (like 20+) but really stoked right now.
