Salo was kicked during the swim?

ETA: Has there ever been a swim on the mainpage WOD?

Re: CF Games 2011 General Thread

i think if orlando is out for not finishing one event, then it should be the same. if you DNF you have no chance to win - either yes or no. but don't make it that way on one event and not that way on another event. one guy can't swim, one guy can't throw a ball, another guy can't climb a rope, and someone else can't do pistols or double unders. either you have to do it to move on or you don't. just my opinion.

as for mikko, hard to believe he would pull himself just over an eardrum? wondering what esle was going on there?

is it just me or do the women look alot more muscular this year?


and i was and still am really pumped about these games, but i am very suprised at alot of the little errors and the general lack or organization of the games page. i expected the live feed to have issues, but the there are lots of typos in the articles, stats, and recaps, and the update are happening really slow. can't imagine reebok is very happy right about now.

Looks to me like they haven't fully updated the Skills scoreboard to reflect the handstand walk and that Froning's domination in the walk would put him in 1st for the event.
