Will Blackburn - 2:00 "King Kong"

My co-owner/partner, and "little brother", Will Blackburn posted a 2:00 flat "King Kong" back in late June. I posted it to our blog and Facebook then. I have since attempted to find quicker times for this workout -- does anyone know of any faster times than 2 minutes?

Re: Will Blackburn - 2:00 "King Kong"

Pretty impressive. Love the pacing. I couldn't do this WOD (I could only do the DL) but let's just say I could, there'd be plenty of time in there I'd spend with my hands on my knees.
Anyway: FYI: Beyond the Whiteboard (289 results) shows the top 3 times as 2:32, 2:46, 2:56 and the rest as >3mins. Not even "non-RX" are less than 3 mins. So the 2min time is even more impressive considering the top times in BYTWB are often "unbelievable" or nonsense like "RX'd" for 1 round etc.
Beast!

It looked like he could have even shaved off a few seconds by putting the stations closer together. That was a remarkable video ... he just looked so casual throughout.

Re: Will Blackburn - 2:00 "King Kong"

indeed, we discussed this too. He also got a little over-excited and subsequently goofed up the last set of HSC's with a little stumble. We'll get a tighter grouping next time. He'll be doing a Titin vest version soon, trying to go <2:45 on that so, we'll see.

I may have found one even, I only scrolled to the end but I think I heard the counter say two minute even.
