Re: Who are you pulling for in the 09 Games?

I'm pulling for Dutch Lowy (1st in SW Quals) in the Men's competition. I competed at the SW Quals and briefly met Dutch and watched him compete. He is a monster and I have been following his training blogs since then and I like his style. Plus, I think he is an Aggie (not sure though) and that doesn't hurt either!

For the Women's I am really pulling for Lindsey Smith (4th is SW Quals). Lindsey is from Houston and I recently met her and her husband Webster, awesome people and both are phenomenal crossfitters. Go Lindsey!

Re: Who are you pulling for in the 09 Games?

I am pulling for everyone who qualified or were grandfathered in to the Games to show us exactly WHY they are there and why we are spectators.

A winner will be crowned in both divisions - and I will be awestruck no matter who it is.

Re: Who are you pulling for in the 09 Games?

Of the men, I'm rooting for Dutch Lowy, Spealler, Josh Everett and Pat Barber. Can't decide between the four.

As for the women, I'm definitely rooting for Kallista. - Still think they should have named a WOD after her last performance; 30 BW squat clean and jerks for time.

Speal's video wasn't quite as ... dramatic as Kallista's.

There was one affiliate who prescribed a 30 BW SC&J entitled Kallista, though I can't remember which.

Speal isn't human. It doesn't count.

All I can say is, I have never seen any video of photo evidence of Mikko Salo, but on paper he's got to be a clear favorite. His stats are siiiiiick.
