Re: 2012 Open, Regional and Games thread

Have they published movement standards for the WODs, or they deliberately publishing them so there will be less keyboard judging?

Re: 2012 Open, Regional and Games thread

I was wondering about the judging of the split snatches too...it seemed like a lot of the women were *barely* moving their feet behind them and their reps counted.

could be. the judge was pointing at the feet and the announcers said it was because the feet didn't move. Tyminski's front foot never seemed to move...

Yes it's different, it's mainly going to be highlights, interviews (hence why you keep seeing interviews with no sounds on the spectator stream - they're recording them for the espn footage), and polished commentated footage with probably 1 live event per day if it follows last years.

Oh dear lord, the commentator that just came on for the team event sounds SO MUCH like the guy in this video that I keep laughing, literally out loud, because of it.
