I'd say that it's okay for a girl to cry in any situation where it's okay for a guy to curse and hit things. It's the same emotion, it just manifests differently.

As for the on vs. off the field of play, I do see your point there. But I've seen guys get ejected for arguing calls, and I've even seen guys essentially throw tantrums in the middle of a live play, even in playoff situations with a lot more on the line than the Crossfit Games. Whether that's okay or not, loss of focus in similar situations is certainly not a gender-specific response.

if you watch football (american football) you will ask yourself over and over how stupid are these guys when they commit some unforgivable personal foul putting the other team back in the game when it was all but over. or in baseball you'll see a pitcher hit a guy putting the tying runner on base simply out of frustration or retribution. it happens.

She recovered incredibly well (4 reps behind #1 Cheryl Brost in that heat, if I recall), but she probably could have done better had she not cried.

That's what I mean in this case by athletic discipline; the ability to channel the emotion in the right direction. Clearly she is disciplined about her training. She made it to the Games and placed well, after all.

THIS (wfs) is what you do in that situation; not cry. Pick yourself up and haul azz.

If only she had Miley Cirus to push her over that "other mountain."

Perhaps.

But that didn't prevent the bad call against Galarraga, and he had been an MLB ump for well over a decade.

Because NBA/ NFL/ MLB/ FIFA judges and refs never make a mistake right?



And FYI- the cable cable connecting the monitor to the erg was loose- that's why it died WHILE she was rowing.

Dammit, I was going to post that.

You spend an entire year prepping for something. When you're finally there, at the last event of the last day, a stupid computer glitch or the rower turning itself off puts you at a huge disadvantage.

Her reaction was entirely natural and if Castro let her off the rower early that seems fair to me. He made the call and I highly doubt he regrets it.
