Sevan Matossian (05:48):

I wish I could fight in the California homes banner in our, uh,

Taylor Self (05:52):

You’re telling me you don’t want go to Madison next year and experience that

Sevan Matossian (05:58):

I, but I just got work to do. I mean, I wanna do that. Thank you guys so much to do. I mean, we can’t do this over. We can’t do this. If we’re there. I can’t. What

Taylor Self (06:08):

If we, what if man behind the scenes bring it back.

Mattew Souza (06:17):

All right

Sevan Matossian (06:24):

Here. Uh, has I, I have a question for you, Kayla and I have a question for anyone out there. We all know about Emily roll’s cardiac event cardiac. No, ah, kind of almost. We all know about our CLO. We know about our clots that are in our arm. Everyone’s been told if this morning I had not shown you this, the cardiac event, the guy who had the clot at, uh, I think the clot was at the base of his neck, uh, at the CrossFit games. One of the master’s competitor would, you know? No, you wouldn’t know. I don’t think so. Tell me, would anyone know, had you heard about it? I’m asking people who are working the games who are relatively high up relatively and they have heard nothing. Does that mean that there’s a third or a fourth or a fifth or a sixth?

Sevan Matossian (07:12):

How come they haven’t announced this second one? How come we don’t know about that? How come they haven’t told us? Is there an announcements on maybe there is maybe the games has a thing where they’re like, these are the athletes that’s pulled out. Kowski has a kink in his penis. Emily Wolf, uh, has had a vaccine incident. This other guy had this, like maybe there is a list somewhere. I haven’t seen it. And I can’t find anyone who knows about it, except for the fact that we announced it on the podcast and had the two doctors on both.

Taylor Self (07:32):

Kowski got a love

Sevan Matossian (07:33):

Hook. No, I don’t think so, man. I was impressed by him, dude. He’s a Savage

Taylor Self (07:39):

Man. He, how about GE? How about GE 16 seconds faster than anyone else in that event? Fucking four minute event. Crazy,

Sevan Matossian (07:46):

Crazy Savage. Hey, that that’s good too, because I was starting to just think that, um, he was just having a horrible week or something like he was lovesick or, you know, something was wrong with him.

Taylor Self (07:57):

He’s got some really, he’s got some really big home run events and he is got some pretty big weaknesses as

Sevan Matossian (08:03):

Well. Yeah. Grand slam even how come we can’t get all the information? You know what else I was thinking at the end of the event, deer CrossFit at the end of the event, you end it so abruptly. Why don’t you guys run a commercial for the affiliates? You have them just run one, run a couple, just run like five or six. It’s free. It’s on YouTube. Run, like run a handful of those. I’m just not seeing enough promotion of the affiliates. It’d be awesome. If you ran one at the end, run one in the middle. Go ahead. Yeah, stop the, sorry. Stop the whole thing right in the middle. And instead of having chase and Sean talk, which I do enjoy listening to them. Talk, run a commercial for the affiliates.

Taylor Self (08:42):

How about this? Yeah. Gee destroys the event. And who do they interview?

Sevan Matossian (08:48):

I didn’t even see who rich run. Justin Maderas oh, oh. <laugh>

Taylor Self (08:52):

Beats everyone by 16 seconds. They don’t even fucking interview him.

Sevan Matossian (08:55):

Wow. Well, well what I, you have to, you have to interview Justin there. I think because he’s two reasons. He’s the champion. He gets the Jersey back. But are you saying you do both interviews

Taylor Self (09:09):

To interviews? You gotta interview the event winner.

Sevan Matossian (09:11):

Sure. Okay. I’ll give it to you.

Taylor Self (09:15):

And he, and what I mean, like you said, he hit a grand slam. He fucking destroyed everyone.

Sevan Matossian (09:20):

Uh, so, uh, uh, Tyler Lopez crushing with the coverage. Appreciate all you do. Let’s not make friends though. Which CrossFit athlete. Let’s not make friends though. Which CrossFit athlete hasn’t lived up to the expectations placed on them. Uh, gimme once second there was someone said something about HIPAA, HIPAA. Yeah.

Taylor Self (09:44):

We Don don’t have any of her medical information. So how does it,

Sevan Matossian (09:47):

They don’t. Yeah, they don’t need to say whether, um, they don’t need to tell us, uh, they don’t need to tell us what happened to people, but they can be telling us who’s been pulled. Who, who pulled out in 16 years with no cardiac events. And now two and one, uh, games. Sorry, not cardiac clotting events. Uh, it it’s it’s um, something’s weird.

Taylor Self (10:11):

Oh, is that Gabe?

Sevan Matossian (10:12):

That guy have a tattoo on his face that wasn’t Gabe. Oh my God. Hey, it is. Oh, that’s gay, man. I wish I was there, dude. I wish I was called there. I wish I was there is that I think first, first of all, um, HIPAA. Yeah, HIPAA is so 2021, uh, in California, you need to show your, uh, medical records by hamburger. So, um, but, but, uh, HIPAA only matters if you’re part of the treatment team. Yeah. And that’s the thing, by the way. So IPO, I spoke to some people on the medical team and they weren’t gonna tell me about the old guy, uh, who, who had the event. And then once they knew, I knew and I sent them a link to where it is on the internet. They talked to me about it a little bit. And uh, yeah. People, people in the know are concerned. Thank you, California hormones. Nice. Oh, this is awesome. There’s will plumber. Yeah. Look at plumber. Good guy. Yep. He looks good. Plumber should bring up. You’re on the podcast. How are you? Cheers.

Taylor Self (11:14):

Will looks good. You said he’s on my training.

Sevan Matossian (11:16):

He should. Uh, is he? Yep. Yeah, he looks thicker. Uh, and he just should grow that throw out

Taylor Self (11:23):


Sevan Matossian (11:24):

You can, um,

Taylor Self (11:25):

You gotta keep it high and tight. <laugh> that’s right. That’s right. Well, look at the big guy. Look at the big guy with the shirt tied around his belly.

Sevan Matossian (11:33):

<laugh> Hey, that’s because it’s probably dirty. He wore it yesterday. That’s

Taylor Self (11:36):

That’s awesome.

Sevan Matossian (11:37):

Um, uh, there’s two things I wanna talk about before we leave today. Uh, I just wanna mention them so we don’t forget. I wanna talk about the yolk that we’ve heard that the athletes have been measured for and about the video that, uh, um, the picture still picture that Adrian posted where he’s in front of some, uh, I dunno what you call those tanks

Taylor Self (11:56):

Sleds. They don’t look like they have wheels.

Sevan Matossian (11:59):

Oh, I thought they did look like they had wheels. They,

Taylor Self (12:01):

They, well, we’ll pull the picture up and we’ll see.

Sevan Matossian (12:02):

Okay. Um, let’s start with the women. Is the leaderboard updated for the,

Mattew Souza (12:09):

Hey Devon? We have somebody who wants say

Sevan Matossian (12:10):

Hi, you know, what’s up girl?

Mattew Souza (12:13):

Hey, say what’s up and come on.

Sevan Matossian (12:14):

What’s up? Mama and mama. Mama Athena. Crazy. Good to see you guys.

Taylor Self (12:20):

What a community? Uh, it doesn’t look like the women’s points are updated. That was

Sevan Matossian (12:27):

The carpenter OG shirt. You’re welcome. OG shirt gets a free beer too. Hey, OG shirt only gets 50% off Jeremy Garcia. I think dude’s cool. Shit. I think that’s him. Unless I’m getting my Mexicans mixed up.

Taylor Self (12:41):

I think it’s Williams.

Sevan Matossian (12:43):

Jeremy Williams. Is that, is that the coffee wa and pods guy right there. Was that wasn’t him? Was it?

Mattew Souza (12:50):

No, no, no. That’s not him. Yeah. I don’t think he’s here.

Sevan Matossian (12:53):

Okay. Um, let’s pull up the woman’s leaderboard. Is it updated? Uh, will or Caleb?

Taylor Self (12:59):

No, the points are not updated.

Sevan Matossian (13:01):

Okay. Can we go over there anyway and see what’s going on? Yeah. Oh, Hey, that’s disrespecting the CEO shirt wearing like a crop top, but we do, we do know who, who, okay. Could we rank them by the, uh,

Taylor Self (13:18):

The event,

Sevan Matossian (13:19):

But yeah, if that’s all we got, uh, Ellie Turner, why did she win the event? And was she low enough in the squat?

Taylor Self (13:29):

She won the event because of her squat power. Uh, and her capacity won on the wall ball, but also the dumbbell, squat snatch. She was so fast on the dumbbell snatch. And according to the video and my eye that we received, her hip crease does not fall below the knee. Uh, it’s tough because you see some athletes that appear to hit depth and they appear to get as low as they can in their squat. Yet their knee shoots forward. They have great ankle flexion and for whatever reason, depth, their hip crease doesn’t fall below the knee. Uh, that is the case with Ellie Turner. So we can pull that video up if you want. Uh, we have that. Here we go. Oh yeah. So man, I wish we could draw on that. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (14:15):

At the bottom. And look,

Taylor Self (14:17):

He’s pause. Yeah. Try to drag. Yeah, yeah. See that bottom. Like you look at the hip crease right at the corner of where her shirt meets her pants. Yep. And that appears to be just a bit higher than the top of her knee.

Sevan Matossian (14:36):

Is that the top of her knee?

Taylor Self (14:37):

That’s the top of her knee. A little, uh, go over a li there that’s the top of Renee.

Sevan Matossian (14:46):

Wooey it’s close. And let me tell you, so I think the next one’s even, uh, even more suspect.

Taylor Self (14:52):

Yeah. So, I mean, she’s got some massive legs. Is that the reason? And I don’t think that’s the worst angle. It’s it’s not a, that’s not a bad angle.

Sevan Matossian (15:02):

Hey. And to be, to be fair. Uh, did you see Justin Madera’s uh,

Taylor Self (15:07):

His squats. Yeah, I did. And they were below. I saw your text, but you can tell his or below if we can pull that video up,

Sevan Matossian (15:12):

I, I don’t have that video, but I will. It it’s it’s also because he, in the shot of him doing the wall balls, you could see Roman and Romans like asked to grass.

Taylor Self (15:21):

So the thing with the thing with, um, Maderas, which makes it appear that he’s not going as low is he’s got such a wide stance in his wall ball. So he’s you’re right. His depth overall is not as low. The range of motion is shorter, but his hip crease is without a doubt below the knee. The thing that is challenging for El Turner, she’s got a narrow stance and her knees shoot so far forward and she has such great ankle flexion. She doesn’t have to sit into her hips as much. And so her hip crease doesn’t, she doesn’t get as much hip flexion. She has more ankle flexion than hip flexion.

Sevan Matossian (15:52):

If you have to advise Adam Nier, do you have her fix that? She can. I think she can.

Taylor Self (16:00):

She for sure can fix it. Absolutely. Uh,

Sevan Matossian (16:03):

Look at chase Ingram. Holy cow. What’s he doing? There is Adam.

Taylor Self (16:06):

Knifer now

Andrew Hiller (16:07):

Meet of, uh, chase.

Sevan Matossian (16:08):

Hey, is chase someone, someone hand chased a beer. I wanna see what happens to his comment team.

Speaker 5 (16:14):

We’re giving out free beer right now. Are you, are you able to

Taylor Self (16:16):

Drink right now? Get him fucked up. I gotta,

Sevan Matossian (16:19):

Yes, he can. Don’t be a, don’t be a Badi.

Taylor Self (16:22):

<laugh> get him fucked up.

Sevan Matossian (16:24):

Yeah. Come on, come on. So

Taylor Self (16:26):

ISR ISER her coach now she’s not under Michelle Tundra.

Sevan Matossian (16:30):

Uh, I, uh, that is my understanding. My understanding is that the days with, uh, is that Ariel Lowen? Who is that? Get her a beer. No.

Taylor Self (16:39):

No. Okay, cool. So she’s with Knifer. I mean, if I’m his coach, I, I address it just because you only get away with it for as long as you get away with it. And then you don’t and if you don’t know how to fix it and you don’t have that, uh, that is Jeremy Williams. He’s another guy on my program. Good dude. Fit his fuck

Sevan Matossian (16:54):

Also. Yeah. He looks fit as

Taylor Self (16:56):

Fuck you. Um, yeah, you just fix it. It’s an easy thing to fix for her. She’s so athletic she’s for sure. Got the mobility to do it. She widens her stance up. Just a hair sits back in the heels, gives herself more hip flexion.

Sevan Matossian (17:10):

You get the wrong judge. And uh, and those are logo. Yeah. Yeah,

Taylor Self (17:13):

Fuck. And that’s the difference between someone like Maderas in that last event and someone like Ricky, who’s got the capacity, but if you just watch the mechanics in Madera’s squat, in his shoulder position, impeccable, and you look at the mechanics in Ricky squat, in his shoulder position and not impeccable. And that’s the difference between a second place and a 12th place in an event like that, their capacity, their physical capability, what the, the work they can do is so close, but the degree to which they can express that the degree to which they can express that because of their

Speaker 6 (17:43):

Decision every time for a top bag of three 40,

Sevan Matossian (17:49):

Oh, it’s a sandbag.

Speaker 6 (17:50):

Now here’s the deal,

Sevan Matossian (17:57):

Guys. This is a live

Speaker 6 (17:58):

The event that you are out at a certain weight and other athletes also are out at that weight. We’re gonna have a tie break. And so over on the side, we’re gonna have 10 lanes of yolks set up with three bags that are lighter at the bottom 5100, 1 50 for the ladies, 100, 1 50, 200 for the men. So once you have washed out of a particular lift, if others don’t make that one, either you’re gonna line up in front of the Oaks can imagine the finished platform is right here. Greg is facing the finished platform right now in this scenario at the beep beep he’s gonna pick up the bags and he’s gonna put them over the yolk. Go ahead and do it, Greg. There you go. 1, 2, 3, and then he is gonna run to the finished platform to break the tie. I don’t care how you get ’em over. Is it heavy to light? Is it light to heavy? I don’t know. You tell me, get ’em over. Get to the platform. Simple. Simple. Okay. Yeah. Men’s tie break weights. 100, 1 5200. Women’s 5101 50

Sevan Matossian (19:22):

Travis mayor. Okay. No

Speaker 6 (19:24):

Olsen. So that’s the event. You guys feel good about it. Chuck’s gonna give you a brief on the movement standard, but you understand it. Feel good about it. It’s gonna be nuts in there in the Coliseum. They’re gonna love you guys doing this. We also have a very special guest. That’s gonna come and give you guys a couple of pointers on how to do this safely and efficiently. I wanna bring in Jerry Pritchett, professional strongman.

Taylor Self (19:50):

I was wrong,

Sevan Matossian (19:51):

Huh? Should half th

Speaker 6 (19:55):

That’s a two Hyundai. It’s like a one hand lift for him. And Jerry’s gonna give you guys a couple of pointers here to think about why you’re taking this on. Thank you virtually. I was hoping for a max dead lift what they gave me bag. So, um, a couple of the biggest things I like to go over on the bad guys when you get to the bigger bags. Well,

Sevan Matossian (20:33):

Um, I’m guessing that they have to carry the yo a certain distance and then go ahead.

Taylor Self (20:41):

Uh, potentially no, you’re right. The yokes are fitted for them. So

Sevan Matossian (20:44):

I think you have to carry the yo a certain distance. And if, if you don’t make it with a certain amount of weight and if you don’t, it’s kind it’s death by, by yolk. I think, I mean,

Taylor Self (20:54):

Those are heavy. They have heavy sandbags that you have to lift as well. Cause the men end at 340 pounds and the ladies end at 250 pounds.

Sevan Matossian (21:05):

Do, do you see the workout somewhere?

Taylor Self (21:08):

No, but I just heard him say that.

Sevan Matossian (21:10):

Interesting. Fuck. I wonder what the, uh, will or Caleb, did you guys hear the workout? Is there anywhere where we can know the workout is on the game site yet? No, that was it. That was the announcement live when we missed the beginning. Well, either way what it does look like or what it sounded like, is it each round you can get knocked out. So that means, I think that some something is getting heavier every

Taylor Self (21:29):

Round sandbags.

Sevan Matossian (21:31):

Oh, the sandbag are getting

Taylor Self (21:32):

Heavier every round. Yeah. The question, my question about the yolk is how do they make it a standardized sandbag over yolk? If everyone has been fitted height wise for their yolk. Does that make sense?

Sevan Matossian (21:43):

Yeah. Well then maybe it’s easier for the, for the guys who have a little bit easier for the guys who have the lower yolk. Here we go. One rep max sandbag to shoulder women’s bags. Oh, wow. One rep max sandbag to shoulder. I, I don’t get that. You you’re telling me if the, if the

Taylor Self (22:03):

It’s just to shoulder, so they’re just gonna be taken the bag to the shoulder. Um, and as soon as you get knocked out at a weight, the tie break is gonna be that three bag over the yolk sprint to finish, like how last year? And then the year prior was one rep max clean Orlon rep, max snatch. And the weight that you got knocked out at, if two other athletes got knocked out at that same weight, you all would enter a tie break. And in years prior.

Sevan Matossian (22:27):

Oh, so now the tie break is just to throw the bag over yolk.

Taylor Self (22:29):

It’s the three bags over the yolk and then advance the finish. Wow. That’s gonna be fucking nuts.

Sevan Matossian (22:34):

Hey, is it that hard for the is, is 250. Sandbag is crazy for a woman to put on a ship for.

Taylor Self (22:39):

Yeah. I’ve never even approached a three 40,

Sevan Matossian (22:42):


Taylor Self (22:42):

I’ve done a two 50. Uh, but that’s as heavy as, as my gym’s got, well, we don’t even have two 50. I use a two 50 at JRS

Sevan Matossian (22:49):

And it’s, and it’s just awkward as shit.

Taylor Self (22:52):

Yeah. It’s two 50 is challenging, but you can

Sevan Matossian (22:55):

Do it. The sandbags, like a sausage it’s it’s it’s long, it’s long, a couple feet long. And then like this,

Taylor Self (22:59):

It’s not like a sausage it’s like, uh,

Sevan Matossian (23:02):

It’s a route. It’s like a Dal. It’s like the black bag de ball.

Taylor Self (23:05):

It’s almost like a cylinder.

Sevan Matossian (23:07):

Do they sell ’em at rogue? Can we go over there and look at ’em? Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. That’s what I’m thinking. Like a cylinder. More like a hot dog,

Taylor Self (23:13):

But not like a hot dog, like a, like a Chote or cylinder, like a mini corn dog, a Cho or

Sevan Matossian (23:18):

<laugh> shorter and more stout it’s but it’s not the round. It’s not the round black

Taylor Self (23:23):

Bag. No, I don’t believe it’s it. It is. But the heavier, they get the, see the heavier they get. Wow.

Sevan Matossian (23:28):

Oh, okay. I didn’t you right? It is Chote or I didn’t expect that crazy. So from what? Just to we get, I, I like precision with words. The one 50 is, is the ultimate showed it’s almo. Right? And once you go to 200, it’s not a showed anymore. It’s actually longer than it is round. Yeah.

Taylor Self (23:45):

<laugh> the one is my cock.

Sevan Matossian (23:48):

Okay. So, so they do start in the, um, what’s the lightest bag. Good, fine. What’s the lightest

Taylor Self (23:53):

Two 40.

Sevan Matossian (23:55):

Okay. So the men never handle the Cho. How about the women?

Taylor Self (23:58):

The women handle the Cho. I think they start at one 50 or what?

Caleb Beaver (24:01):

It probably depends on what they load it with. Cuz you could load it with like buckshot and it would be heavier. Still it be using

Taylor Self (24:07):

A one. The women start with their 50

Speaker 7 (24:09):

Pound bag.

Taylor Self (24:11):


Sevan Matossian (24:11):

I’m telling you guys now do not fucking buy this, do not buy this. This is a waste of money. This will sit around in your fucking garage and you’ll wish you never bought it. You’ll use it for a month or two. And that’s it. You’re done. This is not the don’t. If, if you buy this, you have too much money,

Taylor Self (24:28):

Dude. They’re not that expensive one. The other thing I, so you got like 30 on then,

Sevan Matossian (24:32):

Right? Yes I do. <laugh>

Taylor Self (24:34):

They’re like the best. Yeah, exactly. They’re like the best piece of equipment, dude. That’s all I use is my fucking dals. I I want one 1500. I use it all the time.

Sevan Matossian (24:42):

Yeah. D dals yeah. Yeah. I fuck with the dals. But these things trust me that don’t buy anything that weighs 400 pounds.

Taylor Self (24:48):

Yeah. Don’t buy that. What the fuck are you gonna do with that?

Sevan Matossian (24:52):

Uh, okay. Let’s go back over to the, uh, women’s event while man, these guys are making me thirsty, making me thirsty, uh, the women’s event, the women’s uh, leaderboard, uh, the event was called hat trick. Oh’s

Taylor Self (25:08):

365 MERF

Sevan Matossian (25:09):

It was uh, three rounds. It was the wall ball and the 70 pound snatches rest. Do it three times. Take the scores at ’em together. And boom, we had our winner, Ellie Turner, uh, first place then, uh, ma O’Brien second place then Tia, Claire, Tomi, uh, Tia lost that. Right?

Taylor Self (25:27):

Tia lost, uh, lost. She took fourth or third. She

Sevan Matossian (25:30):

Didn’t. But by that, I mean, but I mean she did it to herself. She could have, she could have been,

Taylor Self (25:34):

She got a few, no reps, unfortunately I

Sevan Matossian (25:36):

Don’t think she, she could have been eight, eight seconds faster. At least

Taylor Self (25:40):

She, she could have beaten mal I don’t think anybody was eating.

Sevan Matossian (25:47):

She could have what? Say it again.

Taylor Self (25:49):

She had the opportunity to beat mal, but not Ellie.

Sevan Matossian (25:54):

Okay. Ellie, Ellie straight. Put it to him. Yeah.

Taylor Self (25:59):

<laugh> showed to shoulder. That’s what the event should be called.

Sevan Matossian (26:02):

<laugh> Hey, what, um, what else could we see Ellie? When you see that? What else are we gonna end up seeing her being just super duper dominant in?

Taylor Self (26:10):

I think she’s gonna do, ah, well she’s wicked strong on a barbell, but she had an issue with the sandbag at waza. So I’m holding my tongue there. Um, she’s great at squat burpy. Think great at snatch pull up. She’s really good at couplets and, and classic CrossFit. Like again, snatch, burpy, thruster, burpy, double under pull up shit like that. Fantastic.

Sevan Matossian (26:34):

If at the end of the week, um, Daniel, Brandon is uh, three points out and uh, let’s let’s come back and look from changing places on the leaderboard. Let’s come back and look because look how close she is to Tia Tomi. Just over a half, a second. Slower than Tia.

Taylor Self (26:52):

Yeah, but Tia had a few really bad. No reps.

Sevan Matossian (26:55):

I hear you. I hear you. Uh, car Saunders, Gabriela Manawa. Um, and uh, the lady from all the way down 34th place, uh, from Korea sung young choy with a seventh. Uh, why, why, why is an athlete who’s so poor? Not so poor, not as good as these other, uh, elite athletes, um, coming to an event like this in kick ass.

Taylor Self (27:19):

Well, she got a seventh on this morning’s workout or sorry, a seventh on last night’s workout,

Sevan Matossian (27:26):

Which was

Taylor Self (27:27):

Press echo, press.

Sevan Matossian (27:28):


Taylor Self (27:30):

That’s not bad. Can you scroll over and see where her other finishes are? Wow. She’s in 34th. None. None of them are gonna be at top 10. None of the others are top 10. She just has two top 10 finishes. Uh, I don’t know you, you think power output, but also mobility position ability to rip the dumbbell quickly and, and finish in a good position and that single alarm, overhead squat and stand that’s. I mean, you watch ski move it so you could imagine if she’s moving maybe in a similar fashion, she’s gonna have a good finish in that event

Sevan Matossian (28:00):

Is, uh, is Emma Lawson’s finish, going to take her out of the top three.

Taylor Self (28:05):

Where did she

Sevan Matossian (28:05):

Finish? 10th. She’s 10th.

Taylor Self (28:08):

Uh, what’s the point spread? She’s got 702 points. And what does fourth have?

Sevan Matossian (28:17):

Oh yeah, I could have done the math too. Uh it’s oh yeah. It’s it’s Haley Adams who was uh, 12 points behind her and

Taylor Self (28:23):

She took 21st in that event. So I think Emma Lawson’s okay.

Sevan Matossian (28:26):

Oh, Haley did. Wow. Wow. Wow.

Taylor Self (28:33):

Hasn’t either she had a really bad finish there too.

Sevan Matossian (28:35):

So she may even, she may even secure her place on the PO. She may have done well enough to even distance herself further from, uh, Hailey Adams.

Taylor Self (28:43):

Yeah. And uh, I like the sandbag for Hailey though. I don’t think that’s a bad workout for her. I think that’s about as ideal of a strength event for Hailey as you could possibly get.

Sevan Matossian (28:55):

Okay. Let’s roll over to the, uh, men’s scoreboard. Uh, it doesn’t look like it’s been updated either, but at least we have the, uh, at

Taylor Self (29:09):


Sevan Matossian (29:10):

Yeah, the ch hat trick. Uh, gee, we talked about him 3 44, 16, 17 seconds ahead of the champ. Justin Madeira took second, uh, do pepper Down’s out now, right? 24th place. Doesn’t matter really what he does now. He’s just trying to secure the, can even reach his goal of being top 10.

Taylor Self (29:28):

No, he’s got no shot at climbing 14 points with, with one day left with four event left 14 places not points. Okay. Yeah. I don’t see that happening. Uh, well just take a look now he’s got 3 84 and can we go ahead and look at what 10th has I can do? I can do it too. Okay. Uh, 3 44, 5. Yeah. I don’t think he’s making up 200 points. Um, and the guys ahead of him are so 10th and up are so good. Where’s hopper at 12.
