Sevan Matossian (00:00):

What she, there’s a, there’s a, there’s a B friendly shirt. Look at that. Bam. We’re live. Is that Brian friend shirt B friendly.

Caleb Beaver (00:07):


Sevan Matossian (00:07):

Look at the back. Wow. <laugh> wow. Wow. That’s amazing. That’s amazing. Am release

Caleb Beaver (00:14):


Sevan Matossian (00:15):

Wow. That is she’s. She’s doing it justice. Wow. Yeah, she trust it. How’d she get it?

Caleb Beaver (00:24):

How’d you get your shirt? That shirt first.

Mattew Souza (00:27):

Uh, Ken gave it to me from Sherpa. You wanted me to go and show him what the business was.

Caleb Beaver (00:34):

Nice. Did you guys hear that?

Sevan Matossian (00:36):

Yeah, the business show him what the business was from. Sherpa works. My

Caleb Beaver (00:40):

Goodness. The business.

Sevan Matossian (00:43):

Hey, did you get to, um, sit, uh, court side for that event? Uh, Suza?

Caleb Beaver (00:47):

Yeah. Yeah. Yep. Yep.

Sevan Matossian (00:49):

Um, did they, have you heard anything about the significant troubles, uh, that they were having during the broadcast?

Caleb Beaver (00:58):

I, no, I couldn’t really, uh, seen any of the issues with the broadcast from where I was.

Sevan Matossian (01:03):

We couldn’t, we couldn’t the, the first heat of women. We couldn’t tell what was going on. We didn’t re we, I mean, we never really found out what the workout was. I mean, we know just because we’re fucking been students of the game.

Caleb Beaver (01:15):

Right, right.

Sevan Matossian (01:17):

But, um, there were no scores, it was hard to follow. It was a fucking mess, but it looked like they were killing it on the field. It looked like they were killing it on the field. It looked like they even had the times of the runs on the field on those little placards.

Caleb Beaver (01:32):

Yeah, they did. And we were actually able to see this, the amount of jerks that they did, but the placard as well in front of the blocks.

Sevan Matossian (01:38):


Caleb Beaver (01:39):

So we met at matter of time, follow away along the event, uh, on site, which is unusual. Cuz usually you get a better view from the broadcast.

Sevan Matossian (01:47):

Yeah, no, it was, I, I will say this at the very, there was basically four heats, right? Two women and two men at the very last heat. We started getting some aerial shots from a drone and then the shit got good.

Caleb Beaver (01:59):

Ah, that’s awesome.

Sevan Matossian (02:00):

Maybe that’s why they, they do that on purpose. Just really fuck up the first heat. So by the fourth heat, we’re just appreciative of anything.

Caleb Beaver (02:07):

<laugh> yeah. That’s a bit slowly. Get it better. So that way you’re stoked about it. Even though it’s still mediocre.

Sevan Matossian (02:12):

Yeah. Throw poop at us in the first round and in the fourth round throw tomatoes at us and we’re just happy it’s tomatoes and not poop.

Caleb Beaver (02:18):

Just take full of anything about shit.

Sevan Matossian (02:20):

Yeah. Oh, where, where are you headed right now?

Caleb Beaver (02:23):

Right now we’re headed over to the, uh, expo center to the media room. So as this lets out, my internet drops off, which is like interesting. Cuz the more people that I congregate, one spot, the harder it is. That’s what happened to me on the last stream that you guys were at. I had great connection. Then as more people flooded in it just slowly got worse and worse and worse though. It dropped me off.

Sevan Matossian (02:42):

Okay. Uh, and we’re

Caleb Beaver (02:43):

Also gonna go see, oh, sorry. We were gonna go see because the, uh, athletes will usually exit and enter there. And since this was their only event today, I’m gonna kind of hang out right in front where they go through the briefing area and see if we could catch up with anybody. Cuz I saw that that was a pretty good spot to hang out at earlier today.

Sevan Matossian (02:59):

Okay, John, welcome to the show. Thank you.

John Young (03:02):

Thank you.

Sevan Matossian (03:04):

Uh, did you watch all four heats?

John Young (03:07):

Uh, yeah.

Sevan Matossian (03:08):

Um, uh, what’s your, what’s your immediate response? After watching the women go?

John Young (03:15):

I was big move by Gabby. Uh, Gabby was having a hard time, uh, 25th I think. And you could tell that she’s been working on her running cuz I thought that showed, I thought Haley made a phenomenal gameplay to try to go out and win the run. And she did. Um, I was very impressed by mallow Bryan’s jerks. She moved that 200 pound bar so easily. It just looks like it flies off her chest, especially her being so small.

Caleb Beaver (03:43):

Um, do you think she was just being, being slow on purpose so that she could hit the jerks? Well or do you think that she was like just not very fast?

John Young (03:50):

I don’t think, I just don’t think she’s very fast. She’s never been very fast. So I don’t think,

Caleb Beaver (03:55):

You know, didn’t work. They worked on in the,

John Young (03:58):

I mean she might, she, she, I do, but you don’t just go from not fast to fast. Uh, Chris Henshaw will tell you Matt Fraser didn’t win that sprint because he was faster than everybody it’s cuz he can recover better than everybody. Um, but uh, I think,

Sevan Matossian (04:14):

Hey, that would also explain why Marton was able to keep up with all those guys while running with the camera too.

John Young (04:19):

I very true. <laugh> um, I,

Caleb Beaver (04:22):

Because margin’s not fast,

Sevan Matossian (04:22):

He’s just, I mean, it’s not that he is not fast, but he is not faster than those guys. Margin’s in great shape, but like come on, the cameraman should not be beaten the athletes. Sorry, go ahead, John.

John Young (04:31):

Uh, Matt probably knew that mal was phenomenal at jerking that weight. So the game plan was probably just to go 90%, like go hard on the run, but don’t sell your soul. It’s okay. If you get behind and then, uh, jerk the way as fast as you can. And I mean, if she gets a third and a 17th, she comes out to like an eighth on both of them. I think they’ll take that all day.

Sevan Matossian (04:56):

Uh, gimme one second here. Uh, John Heidi, what’s up girl. How are

Heidi Cam (04:58):

You? Hey good. How’s it going?

Sevan Matossian (05:00):

Good. Where are you?

Heidi Cam (05:02):

Um, I’m like right next to the paper street booth right here using it as a home base. So,

Sevan Matossian (05:08):

Uh, how, how was the event? What’d you see? What do you got?

Heidi Cam (05:11):

Um, it was good actually. Uh, Matt kind of cut in like right in front of us, right there at the finish line. So he was cheering on mail and um, seemed like, I don’t know. Well, this is just me making shit up, but it seemed like he was really cheering her on to go quicker on the run. I could be making that up, but just the way he was yelling, like, come on, Mel, come on, mail on the run.

Caleb Beaver (05:35):

Seemed like trying to wheel her to go faster. Yeah.

Heidi Cam (05:36):


Sevan Matossian (05:37):

What other co what other coaches did you see there? Did you see Koler up in the front row? Maxell Hajj, uh, Ben, um, uh, Bergeron are all the heavyweights there?

Heidi Cam (05:46):

Uh, no. I just saw Matt for the women. And then when the men were about to come out, all the men’s coaches came out and they were getting ready to go kind of in the same, same spot. So,

Sevan Matossian (05:59):

Um, we’re hearing rumors that when, uh, uh, Vener missed his third jerk that, uh, Michelle Laton, uh, yelled at him. I’m done with you and stomped off the field. Is that true?

Heidi Cam (06:08):

A hundred percent true.

Sevan Matossian (06:10):

Okay. Thought

Heidi Cam (06:11):

So. And uh, yeah, she was then kicked out. She got in a fight and then got kicked out. So,

Sevan Matossian (06:16):

Um, any, any of the athletes that, um, I guess from home, what they’re saying is, is everyone saying that they can’t believe how good, uh, Ricky did, uh, in both the run and the jerks? Is he the big standout, uh, between the men and the women from, from your opinion?

Heidi Cam (06:30):

I think so. I mean, it kind of looks like, I don’t know, I’m not an, I’m not an expert analyst. I just, you know, better at talking shit and spreading rumors, but in my opinion it seems, seems like he’s looking good.

Sevan Matossian (06:43):

Yeah. Nice body for sure. Okay. Yeah. Oh, who gets the biggest cheers? Um, of the, uh, women?

Heidi Cam (06:50):

I would say in that one, I was hearing a lot for Haley,

Sevan Matossian (06:53):

Haley Adams. Okay. Good. Make happy. And who got the biggest cheer for the men?

Heidi Cam (06:58):

That’s hard to say. I don’t know. It seemed pretty even. I mean, I don’t think that many people are cheering for Ricky, but at the end of the day they are. I mean at first, not really. And then everybody gets behind him.

Sevan Matossian (07:10):

So did they call, we didn’t see Colton S at all in any of that footage, is he still in the CrossFit games?

Heidi Cam (07:17):

Um, dude, I don’t know. I didn’t see him either. I don’t know if he is, I couldn’t quite see over everybody’s head. So maybe that has something to do with

Sevan Matossian (07:25):

It. He was running in between Jason Hopper and uh OWK and no one could see him for the

Heidi Cam (07:30):

Whole event. That makes sense. Right.

Sevan Matossian (07:32):

All right, girl. Well, thanks for checking in. Thank you. All right, bye

Heidi Cam (07:36):


Sevan Matossian (07:39):

Uh, okay. Can you pull up the, uh, leader board? Um, and let’s uh, oh, there she is. Wait. Oh, hold on one second. Wow. There she is. That’s the, uh, that’s the rope climb lady, the 70, 72 year old lady who did the, uh, legless road climb. My mom was trying to teach me how to pronounce her name. Yolk. I think it’s yolk, yolk, kickoff, yolk, IKO. The D is silent.

Caleb Beaver (08:07):

Dang. That’s

Sevan Matossian (08:08):

Awesome. Yeah, that is awesome. Susan, back up a little bit more. I wanna see, um, how many people are watching her. Yeah. Lady in a CFH Q shirt. Yeah. Cool.

John Young (08:17):

They should, they should have had a Rowe hang from this ceiling so she could just climb it when people

Sevan Matossian (08:22):

<laugh> right there. Do it

Caleb Beaver (08:25):

Like a party trick. Isn’t she competing this weekend?

Sevan Matossian (08:28):

She is. And what’s crazy is, you know, it’s a 65 and over class. It’s like, she’s, she’s a crazy outlier in the class.

Caleb Beaver (08:35):

Wow. Oh yeah. She’s like, I

Caleb Beaver (08:37):

Got a, I got a favorite of ours up here too. Um,

Sevan Matossian (08:41):

Uh, your audio is incredible. Hey, what happened to your gile? SU? I thought you had a gimble you’re back to fucking shaky, fucking alcoholic, synonymous hand. I, it kinda

Caleb Beaver (08:48):

Like, it kind of like broke and it wasn’t functioning. And I was like fighting it the whole time. It was, I’ll try to be as smooth as I can

Sevan Matossian (08:54):

Here. Um, oh, is that Christoff? Justin is nuts. Yeah.

Caleb Beaver (08:57):

Yeah. That’s our man Christoff right there. Live

Sevan Matossian (09:00):

And, uh, Gabby Manawa. What’s up,

Caleb Beaver (09:01):

Dude. My guy you’re on. You’re on right now with, uh, with, uh, Chevon here. Wanna

Sevan Matossian (09:07):

Say hi, what’s up brother? How’s the experience. Can you hear us?

Caleb Beaver (09:10):

Yeah. How’s the experience? How’s the experience. From what perspective? From your perspective,

Sevan Matossian (09:19):

From behind those crazy glasses

Caleb Beaver (09:21):

From behind those awesome glasses, he said it, um, he said it’s not the best spin hear.

Sevan Matossian (09:32):

Yeah, it is. Tell him we’ll bug him later. Tell him. Thank you.

Caleb Beaver (09:35):

Okay. Thank you very much. He said we’ll, we’ll shoot your text later. See we catch up. Thank you for your time.

Sevan Matossian (09:41):

Hey, didn’t Gabby. Um, win the run.

John Young (09:43):

She won her heat.

Sevan Matossian (09:45):


John Young (09:45):

So, and the scoreboards all messed up right now. It’s gotta run in a 3 24, which I think she was more of a, a six, 10, I think is what chase said.

Sevan Matossian (09:56):

Um, okay.

Caleb Beaver (09:57):

But also I wonder what’s happening with Laura?

John Young (10:00):

Yeah. I didn’t really see Laura. Did you during the footage?

Sevan Matossian (10:06):

I, I saw, I saw her once or twice running seven on thoughts on showing the entire field at all times instead. I mean, I don’t know about all times, but way more Ryan way, way, way. I mean, way more like soon as they go wide and Sean starts talking like that’s much better for me, even if I can’t see the athlete. If Sean says the guy in the second lane from the bottom or the fifth lane from the bottom, I can do it. And then listen to him. Talk about it. When they just show one guy running back and forth, like they were it’s. Um, it wasn’t until the fourth heat that they, uh, that last mensey that they kind of got their shit together. The first, first heat was a complete shit show. It was unwatchable. We didn’t even know what the fucking event was if you were, uh, if you just turned that shit on

John Young (10:47):

The women

Sevan Matossian (10:47):

For the women, when the first heat of the women went on, there was no clock, no scoreboard. They couldn’t explain the event. Well, it was just like, what the fuck is going on. I’m trying to get, um, uh, chase on. We can pick his brain and see what happened there.

Caleb Beaver (11:01):

I’m just surprised that they didn’t like, usually they’ll explain it. Like every heat they’ll explain the workout at least a couple times. And then, but I didn’t hear it once. I didn’t even hear it at the beginning. Just this bizarre.

Sevan Matossian (11:14):

Um, can we see, uh, yeah, yeah, Jack, that would be amazing. I don’t wanna get greedy. They need to have a live lane graphics like they have in swimming. Yeah. The problem is, is that’s a drone up there and they would need a different, um, like a, a static, uh, still shot. Hey, can we go, um, to the leaderboard? I wanna look at the, the women’s leaderboard. Everyone keeps telling me it’s fucked up. I haven’t seen it yet. Is there fucked up?

John Young (11:33):

I mean, you can’t, you can’t get any information from it. What’s bad is they have the scores in, but, uh, it’s not, they’re not correct.

Sevan Matossian (11:43):

<laugh> okay. Cuz so they have see you at 23rd for the run. So this is misinformation. If this was on Facebook, this would get pulled down and you’d get a, uh, strike against your account. This

John Young (11:52):

Is as far as far as I know the shuttle, the, uh, the overhead part is, is correct.

Sevan Matossian (11:58):

Um, okay.

John Young (11:59):

But the run is not correct. So the total score is not correct, but the shuttle, the overhead is

Sevan Matossian (12:07):

Okay. Let’s go to the men and then we’ll come back and we’ll come back and peep this. Wow. So how about that? Emma Lawson. Did she win the shuttle?

John Young (12:15):

No. No she didn’t. No. She, she was around where mal was.

Sevan Matossian (12:20):

Oh, so she’s killing it.

John Young (12:22):

Yeah, no, I mean that, that’s phenomenal. That’s a kid.

Sevan Matossian (12:26):

She’ll she’ll take’s the kid. She’ll take it. Hey, is that the future? Is she going to eat mal alive in two years?

John Young (12:33):

It’s hard to say. We’ll see how the whole weekend goes, but, uh, right now it’s looking good for her. Woo. She’s

Sevan Matossian (12:39):

Impressive. Okay. Uh, let’s go over to the men and then we’ll come back and they’ll have the women, um, fixed for us.

John Young (12:46):

Okay. Biggest, uh, thing to take away from the men, um, was Valer look at that five reps at 300. Uh, yeah, he was getting no rep quite a few times. Well, it’s not even no rep he missed them. Like he, uh, like when I think of no, I mean, yes, it is a no rep, but uh, like he just couldn’t jerk it. He literally took like 20 seconds to gather himself at one point and then jerk it with five seconds left and he still failed.

Sevan Matossian (13:13):

Let me see who was in first place. Sorry. Don’t ever that’s blast EST to cut out. Mr. Gerard. There we go. Oh,

John Young (13:18):

Can you click on click on shuttle to overhead B the top and see if it’ll sort it out because the total score is not correct because the run’s not correct. So these are correct. So Adler, sax, sax, and pan, probably the biggest winner of this event.

Sevan Matossian (13:32):


John Young (13:33):

Um, Justin and Ricky both killed it. Ricky has always been a very good shoulder to overhead guy though. Uh, his, the stuff he’s weak at is squatting. So it didn’t surprise me that he was good at the jerks,

Sevan Matossian (13:46):

Uh, uh, click on Justin’s too. And then I got a question for John, John. They were saying, uh, okay, see how, okay. You can close it now, see how they both have 94 points for third weren’t they gonna give Ricky more points? Cuz the tiebreaker went to whoever was faster in the run.

John Young (14:01):

They, uh, they said that. Yeah. But um, until the run is sorted out, I don’t know if you can sort out, I, the scoreboard’s not going to reflect that.

Sevan Matossian (14:09):

So the mail run is not sorted out too. You stand by that. Yeah.

John Young (14:12):

The run, none of the runs are, are correct. So if I, I would assume, I don’t know, but I would assume by the end of it, cuz you see how there’s three thirds, two, six, I would. And it probably gets worse and worse down the line you go. Um, I would assume that all of that would be sorted in a third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth by the run.

Sevan Matossian (14:31):

Um, go all the way to the Bo let’s look at the bottom 10. Let’s start at 40th and, and okay, so Kelan so something’s wrong with Kelan Henry? Right? Did he get injured?

John Young (14:42):

Um, no,

Sevan Matossian (14:43):

Just three hundreds. A lot.

John Young (14:45):

Does it seem like he didn’t? Did he not attempt it?

Sevan Matossian (14:47):

Someone said something in the comments about him, the guy from Africa and that’s the guy from Africa. Yeah. Something, someone gave us some Intel on him.

John Young (14:54):

He did, it did look like he, uh, pulled his hamstring a little bit, uh, on

Sevan Matossian (14:58):

The yesterday, right

John Young (14:59):

On one of the events. Yeah. But um, if he completed the run, I would assume he would’ve com tried a jerk, but I maybe he got no reps and that’s why it’s there, which would make sense.

Sevan Matossian (15:11):

Uh, okay. Um, and then, uh, oldest open X is, uh, three reps, Moritz for big is four reps. Okay. So this is a huge problem.

John Young (15:20):

Yeah. And now if I had to guess, I would say oldest one, the run Uhhuh, he had a huge gap and I’m pretty sure he still stayed in front on the 1200, but you see, he did three reps. So he obviously game the system. Um, as far as I’m gonna win the run and I don’t care about the jerk

Sevan Matossian (15:37):

And there’s no way Kelan Henry. Okay. So something happened to Kean Henry’s chip. Okay. Um, but what about this? Um, how Patrick ner five reps. This is some, is he, is he injured?

John Young (15:49):

No, I think he just, he went real hard on the rhyme and everything looked good. And then he, I mean, a lot of people know this. When you fail one time on a lift, it’s hard to hit it again. You just start failing a lot in 300. It’s not an easy weight. I just think he, uh, blew up a little bit.

Sevan Matossian (16:06):

I don’t know if this is scientific, but uh, one of my friends is telling me Zelner’s body won’t recover the way some of the younger athletes will. His lockout was fucked, dry by Elizabeth.

Caleb Beaver (16:20):

That’s scientific.

Sevan Matossian (16:22):

I’ve heard that, that that’s a medical

John Young (16:24):

That’s medical. I don’t buy that. I don’t buy that for a second. He’s always had soft shoulders. You go look with him. Want the walking lung? He holds the lunges out like this. You go watch his snatch. He like crashes down on her shoulders. When he snatches he’s always had soft shoulders.

Sevan Matossian (16:39):

Okay. Uh, arch or semi, uh, Keith let’s keep going. Let’s see who else? Uh, shit. The bed. Um, Baen brown. Oh, Yana. Koski. I saw struggling. So is this gonna be Kass’s worst event? He’s happy. This is coming gone.

John Young (16:53):

It depends what max lift there is, but probably, um, I would assume so. But it, again, it depends on what max, if there’s a max deadlift and he can only deadlift 4 85, then that might be his worst one.

Sevan Matossian (17:10):

Uh, Colton S I didn’t get to see him on camera once it does look like he was at the CrossFit games. It does look like he participated. Uh, there is a chance that his running time is correct. Right.

Caleb Beaver (17:24):


John Young (17:27):

Honestly, I’m not gonna say no that time does look kind like it would be correct for him.

Sevan Matossian (17:33):

Eight, 12, uh, Mr. Andrew Hiller. What do you got to report, buddy? What do you see? What do you see in, in the world of fucking no reps?

hillerfit (17:41):

Do you know? What’s terrible is it’s tough to see a

Sevan Matossian (17:44):

Lot. Did I pass you in subscribers on YouTube?

Caleb Beaver (17:47):

Did you really

Sevan Matossian (17:48):

Do that? Yeah, that I had 776 new subscribers yesterday that my heart hurts a little bit. Like I’m cheating. Like I’m running and you’re just fucking in place. Jerking off at the games.

hillerfit (17:59):

Yeah. I know this is, I know exactly why you stayed at home. It’s for all of those reasons. You son of a bitch. I think I see Suze down there. Folks say SU where’s SU’s he? Not on the show?

Sevan Matossian (18:09):

Uh, wait.

hillerfit (18:09):

Oh, I see. He’s looking at me. He’s looking at me

Caleb Beaver (18:12):

Looking. They’re staring at each other from across the hall.

hillerfit (18:15):


Sevan Matossian (18:18):

Caleb Beaver (20:27):

Train. Think. Tank, strength. Think tank.

Sevan Matossian (20:30):

Oh yeah. Danielle’s way out of her league. She’s slipping. Look at her.

Caleb Beaver (20:34):

Maybe she’s trying to make camp.

hillerfit (20:38):


Sevan Matossian (20:38):

At this. No, I don’t think she can hear us

hillerfit (20:41):

Awkward, Victoria. What’s

Sevan Matossian (20:42):

Wrong? What’s going on here?

Mattew Souza (20:45):

Sevan Matossian (20:47):

Caleb Beaver (20:54):


Mattew Souza (20:55):

So finally, to finally some fitness, right? <laugh> thank God.

Sevan Matossian (20:59):

So ask him if that collarbone shits from that workout.

Mattew Souza (21:02):

I’m not looking at leaderboard, so I don’t man, but

Caleb Beaver (21:04):

I feel like, Hey, how’s they calling on stuff? Is it, is that buzz? Is that from the Seve happy? Yes. I know.

Mattew Souza (21:11):

I can’t. I can’t even see that

Caleb Beaver (21:12):

Though. I just use that excuse to touch you. That’s

Mattew Souza (21:14):

All. Is it just a scar?

Caleb Beaver (21:16):

Yeah, it’s just little, just little Rasic

Mattew Souza (21:17):

Do the, the, the Barb bells were hot as hell.

Caleb Beaver (21:20):


Mattew Souza (21:20):

Like really hot, like hurry up and get it off of you. Be hot.

Sevan Matossian (21:24):

Oh my God. Look how upbeat hopper is. He’s so fucking positive right now. He

Caleb Beaver (21:29):

Is. He’s very positive.

Mattew Souza (21:29):

This is what I needed. Day one. Just the, the momentum man. So awesome. I’m gonna ride this wave of joy for the next day and then writing it to the next event.

Sevan Matossian (21:39):

Um, who’s his new friend at the games. Ask him. Who’s new friend is if he’s made any new friends there, like if he’s got a new buddy, like he hangs with and the corrals and shit. Any new friends?

Mattew Souza (21:47):

No new friends, dude

Sevan Matossian (21:49):


Mattew Souza (21:49):

Ones. My, my circle’s tight.

Sevan Matossian (21:53):

<laugh> oh my goodness. He’s a clone. I fucking hate it.

Caleb Beaver (21:58):


Sevan Matossian (21:59):

You look beautiful. Hopper. Keep it up, dude.

Caleb Beaver (22:02):

Thanks. Go. Here’s

Sevan Matossian (22:04):

Cheers, dude. I love Hillers wide shot. That is dope. Hell, there’s a genius. What a fucking genius.

Caleb Beaver (22:14):

I thought that was Mike.

Sevan Matossian (22:19):

Do you wanna

Caleb Beaver (22:21):


Sevan Matossian (22:22):

Uh, yeah. Gimme, gimme one second. Uh, I, I think what I, where we are guys, just so you know, is we he’s at some back entrance, uh, where the athletes are exiting and going home for the day. So SU did something smart. It doesn’t look like there’s a lot of people. Oh, this is Hiller’s camera too. Okay. So Hiller. Okay. That’s the warmup area in there. Let’s see what we got here. Hold on. Let’s see. Oh. Oh, body fat talk. Let’s see this. Let us hear this Hiller. Let us take us off

hillerfit (22:49):

Just in guys. I don’t know if you can hear me, but, uh, hopper is much leaner than I would’ve figured that that’s really lean.

Mattew Souza (22:56):

Good for you.

Sevan Matossian (22:57):

Wow. Negative 3%. Mark. Tony.

hillerfit (23:01):

Good, man. That was awesome. Wait, wait, what,

Mattew Souza (23:04):

What you just said,

hillerfit (23:05):

He heard it.

Caleb Beaver (23:11):


hillerfit (23:11):

Getting, you’re getting a shots from all angers.

Sevan Matossian (23:15):

Get handle the truth. Hey guys, this is the future. What you’re fucking watching here. This is how easy it is to fucking take over any event anywhere. There’s two dudes with fucking iPhone sticks, walking around. You got fucking another fucking roving reporter. And then you got fucking people like me and Caleb and uh, John Young and uh, a brands that are holding down the Fort here. It’s fucking, this is the future right here. And look it, look at, we’re getting a peep. Look at that. Guy’s even moving outta the way. What a good dude. Give that dude to handy.

Caleb Beaver (23:46):

Hill’s gotta be careful there. They pick up signs since we came here.

Sevan Matossian (23:49):

<laugh> that say? What?

Caleb Beaver (23:51):

Like, let’s see if you go to my, uh, you probably won’t be able to see it, but you’ll be killed. There’s there’s big signs now that say like no video, no social media. Like nothing. Oh, he’s gonna go for it. Isn’t it.

Sevan Matossian (24:02):

It’s all into. Hey, where is that? Oh, they’re having an athlete briefing. Holy shit.

hillerfit (24:08):

Yeah. This is the Anthony brief area. And uh, from what I’ve told, I can’t step over that line.

Sevan Matossian (24:13):

Who’s who’s being briefed in there. Hiller who’s being briefed.

hillerfit (24:17):

Um, let’s see. Who can we, is there a zoom on this?

Sevan Matossian (24:22):

Are they the adapted the masters? As far as age group?

hillerfit (24:26):

Uh, this would be team or age group, age group. People were wandering in here earlier. So probably age group.

Caleb Beaver (24:31):

He’s pushing in

Sevan Matossian (24:33):

You guys. This is how it works. You’re seeing it. They, before every event, they bring the athletes in there. They show them the workout. There’s a demo team. And then you’re allowed to ask questions. That’s how it goes every time. And so the, the athletes aren’t, um, kept in the dark. They are, uh, they’re given a lot of information and they’re allowed to ask a lot of questions. It’s a nice venue. Uh, okay. Uh, we’re gonna go back to the leader board. Uh, we were talking about, uh, Yana Koski, where we is that where we were.

John Young (25:08):

I’m not sure. Do you wanna do all the women then? All the women instead of jumping around?

Sevan Matossian (25:13):

Uh, I think we should wait and let the women’s leader board unfuck itself a little

John Young (25:16):

Bit. I don’t know if it’s going to, it’s been a while since the women wait and it’s still not.

Sevan Matossian (25:21):

I, I think we were on the men because we moved up from we’re

John Young (25:24):

Talking about col

Sevan Matossian (25:25):

S okay. Yeah. Col yeah. Colton me’s. So we, oh, he, we were thinking that maybe that eight minutes is correct

John Young (25:32):

Possible. It, it, it sounds likely that’s <laugh>

Sevan Matossian (25:38):

And, and, and then there’s no way that tu Magda. Yeah. This is a mess. So they got tu Magda is the third fastest run.

John Young (25:46):

No. So, okay. Yeah, no, none of the top guys are labeled correctly, which means none of the, like, none of the points are labeled correctly, either because everybody’s gonna be sorted into a different point thing. The only thing we know is that the, the shoulder to overhead is correct on the men and women’s

Sevan Matossian (26:06):

Okay. I’m gonna leave you guys with this. And then we’re gonna switch over to the women. Nick Matthew, Samwell, quant lizard, GI Jay crouch, Travis Mayer, and Willie George all got 13 reps. And it looks like they’re pretty much in the middle of the pack there. So then there’s a bunch of people who got worse than them. And then there’s a bunch of people who got better than them. Mm-hmm <affirmative> but 13 was kind of the magic number. Only one guy got 14 that’s G and then a bunch of people got 15, then a couple 16, 1 17 and one 19. And that’s Mr. Jeffrey Adler. And he did them with ease. He did them with ease. I think it was the most impressive thing we saw out of the men and women, uh, uh, in the workout. Okay. Yeah. I,

John Young (26:45):

I know people don’t think about this, but beating everybody, beating everybody by three reps and then Saxon by one rep and a workout that only has 20 reps. It’s the same amount of like killing everybody that Valer did in the gymnastics workout in the para bars. It’s the same amount, same gap percentage wise.

Sevan Matossian (27:04):

It’s a ass whoop open.

John Young (27:05):


Sevan Matossian (27:06):

If you, if you Zs scored it, if you Z

John Young (27:08):

Yeah. Tyler would be all of you all up on the z-score right now.

Sevan Matossian (27:11):

<laugh> if you Z scored it, uh, God love cold. Always love cold. Um, let’s go over to the, uh, women women’s leaderboard.

John Young (27:27):

Yeah. Let’s let’s sort them like we do the ha guys

Sevan Matossian (27:32):

By reps.

John Young (27:33):

Yeah. I wanna see how much Haley got.

Sevan Matossian (27:38):

Oh, good. Good

John Young (27:39):

Question. Tia killed everybody. Ma was very impressive.

Sevan Matossian (27:43):

Oh, I think, I think actually Amanda Barnhart won that

John Young (27:47):

Now he misspoke.

Sevan Matossian (27:48):

Oh, he did

hillerfit (27:49):

Competition to the best movie man in CrossFit right there

Sevan Matossian (27:52):


hillerfit (27:53):

I met your parents. Oh really? Yeah. I met him yesterday. Oh, hell yeah. And I put up a, I have a video ready for your handstand walk, fucking bullshit.

hillerfit (28:01):

And I seen, well,

hillerfit (28:02):

What happened?

hillerfit (28:03):

So the guy BA the guy said

hillerfit (28:05):

You you’re live on the Sivan podcast. Oh, that’s fine. Just making sure, you know. Yeah, no,

hillerfit (28:09):

Uh, the judge said your hand touched the black and I was like, okay. But when, because like my thought was like, I crossed the line and I took like extra steps to make sure that I was across the line. Yeah. And I was like, so did I touch the black after I’d already finished the rep? Because

hillerfit (28:22):

There was a yellow line out there. What was that all about? That

hillerfit (28:25):

Was the finish line. So like, once your hands were across the yellow

hillerfit (28:27):


hillerfit (28:27):

Done. Yeah.

hillerfit (28:28):

So I like you’re way across

hillerfit (28:29):

It. And that’s like for competition, I always take one or two steps each hand past that, just to like, mm-hmm, <affirmative> make sure it’s super clear. Judge. Can’t be a Dick about it and

hillerfit (28:36):

Turns out, but that would’ve put you into the final heat. Correct. Would’ve

hillerfit (28:39):

Put me into, so it would’ve gone from the 40 to the 20 guaranteed, like I got got, so I ended up with a 27th and like could’ve easily been 15. I even, you know, worse than 15th. 20th. Yeah. So, yeah. It’s like 30, 40 points on the table, which stinks a little cause it’s like 15 places right now.

hillerfit (28:54):

Well, so far so good, man. Thanks. Appreciate. Thanks for chatting you. Yeah, you too, man.

Sevan Matossian (28:58):

Uh, Hiller. What happened? And is he, is, is that true? What he saying?

hillerfit (29:02):

Uh, how does this work? Can you see me? I don’t know.

Sevan Matossian (29:04):

Yeah, we see we, we can hear you that matters.

hillerfit (29:07):

Where’s the flipping button. Um, what he said was that on that event, he was called

Sevan Matossian (29:12):

What event, what event?

John Young (29:13):

A, the scale med

hillerfit (29:15):

Board med with the double under, I have a video prepared for this and my videos. Aren’t going to be the highest quality, but it shows that as he was traversing, the course, his hands clearly went across the line and he was told that he had, and so he had to go and redo it all over again. And it did then put him into a position where he couldn’t proceed into the next round. So it cost a whole

Sevan Matossian (29:35):

Point, which was that in the first round or the second round,

hillerfit (29:37):

He said it was in the first round, the cut from 40 to 20. So he got stuck in that first round where he should have, and that’s a very good event for him. He’s great on his hands.

Sevan Matossian (29:46):

And you can go back and look at that footage.

hillerfit (29:49):

Uh, he had his, I don’t know if it was his parents or not, but he posted it to his Instagram story yesterday and I grabbed it and you could see that he was over the line and he got sent back and he shouldn’t have been sent back.
