Taylor Self (00:54):

Nice. And then I did some, uh, some bicep curl drop sets. Little pump.

Sevan Matossian (00:59):

I can’t do any of that

Taylor Self (01:00):

Shit. Can’t have John Young making me look like a little boy over

Sevan Matossian (01:03):

There. Oh yeah, those look big. Uh, please tell me, y’all saw the swim mess up? No, we were, uh, I was, uh, watching a Wiki’s video and, uh, Hillary’s video, their little, uh, back and forth. Uh, tell me about it. Let’s see. Let’s go over to Susan. See if he knows Su,

Mattew Souza (01:20):

Huh? Yep.

Sevan Matossian (01:21):

Uh, any reports of some, some errors with the swim? Did someone swim the wrong direction again?

Mattew Souza (01:26):

No, not that I’ve heard on the floor here, but from the reports we got in the stands, which I think the same one you guys were talking about, it’s not like somebody missed the buoy and went around the wrong way.

Sevan Matossian (01:34):

Uh, okay. Yeah. And that’s what happened, uh, last year. Uh, Magnus Holmgren, uh, sev needs to be media director and Taylor as athlete guidance. Okay. Not bad, not a bad suggestion. Uh, the guys missed a huge mess. Uh, these guys or those guys, uh, that trusty black tank. Thanks Taylor. Chevon. Fuck. Uh, missed something good. Huh? They screwed Ms. Kerstetter. Okay. Judges sent athletes in the wrong direction. Oh, I love it. I I’m happy to hear that the judges directed the leaders the wrong way. It did. Happens

Taylor Self (02:06):

How? In what? In what workout? For who?

Sevan Matossian (02:09):

The women. Uh, the judges sent them the wrong way. They were misdirected. The athletes were going the correct way and the judges in the water sent them the wrong way. Oh, that poor person.

Taylor Self (02:17):

But which athletes? Cuz the elites haven’t started yet. Correct.

Sevan Matossian (02:20):

Jake Dome. Cuz he got a dome like Taylor Self, Aeon on the first, on the first lap. Olivia hopped into the water first by more than 20 seconds and was apparently pointed in the opposite direction to the correct direction by the judge. Judge lost multiple places on the first swim. Okay, tell me the workout, Taylor. Why am I confused? How many scenes are,

Taylor Self (02:40):

Uh, grams? I’m gonna, I’m gonna get a DM for Wow, I’m confused. I didn’t realize the elite women had gone in that workout.

Sevan Matossian (02:49):

Yeah, yeah, yeah. We, we’ve, right now we’ve been like, uh, can we get a camera over there? Su can you go over there and film, uh, the event?

Taylor Self (02:56):

It’s what the fuck?

Mattew Souza (02:57):

Yeah. Yeah.

Taylor Self (02:57):

Okay. Okay. Okay.

Sevan Matossian (02:59):

Got it. And, uh, I will see if what I can pull up on their

Taylor Self (03:04):


Sevan Matossian (03:05):

Let her, let me share this with you guys just really briefly.

Taylor Self (03:10):

Women’s heat one, of course they fucked us swim up. What workout have we done where they haven’t fucked something up?

Sevan Matossian (03:15):

So I’m gonna freeze frame this so we don’t get in trouble for playing it, but here’s the layout. It does look like it’s raining there. The ground does look wet. I dunno if that’s from the athletes or the rain. Uh, the way this guy’s sitting on the edge of the seat here with just a tiny bit of the corner purchased by his ass. I’m thinking that maybe, uh, the seats are wet also. And, uh, so the ladies are jumping rope then what do they do?

Taylor Self (03:38):

No, they start with wall balls, 50 wall balls. They enter the water center stage and they swim to the left around the far blue buoy covered by the left palm tree. If you look at that left palm tree just underneath it into the right, you can see the blue buoy. Yeah. They swim to the left around that and they swim on the left side of that buoy, the left side of the white buoy towards the center of the screen. And then the left side of that pink buoy on the far right, they swim around that pink buoy and they come back to the center of

Sevan Matossian (04:03):

The stage. Oh, wait a second. You’re saying they start with blue, go to white, then to pink.

Taylor Self (04:07):

They start center, they swim out to blue around blue, past white around pink back to center.

Sevan Matossian (04:14):

Okay. And, and where do they do the wall balls at? I don’t see any wall ball targets.

Taylor Self (04:18):

Uh, let’s, I’m on the bigger, that’s a good question. Uh, it looks like they’re doing them. It looks like their wall balls are set up.

Mattew Souza (04:27):

It’s on that orange black line you see just above the people’s head from the shot. You guys have it just one big like strip it?

Taylor Self (04:34):


Sevan Matossian (04:35):

Oh, you see that on that pole? That on this pole right here?

Taylor Self (04:38):

Nope. Nope. Go up about six inches on your screen.

Sevan Matossian (04:41):

Oh, that, that stripe? Yep.

Taylor Self (04:43):


Sevan Matossian (04:43):

Okay. It could almost be the L G B Q flag, except it’s not the right colors.

Taylor Self (04:48):

<laugh>. Yeah, not the right colors at all. It’s yellow, orange, red, black,

Sevan Matossian (04:53):

Uh, someone is saying no, you don’t swim around. Uh, that was the confusion. Uh, they swam to the white, but Olivia went to the blue. Okay. So they weren’t, they were okay that so they don’t actually

Taylor Self (05:04):

Oh shit. No. Olivia, Olivia was supposed to swim to blue. She did it correctly. The judges were directing athletes to the Here I got a video on Instagram. Someone sent it to me. Let me look it up.

Sevan Matossian (05:14):

Let’s see. All right, take your time. Uh, wall ball is to where it says double shot with a splash. Okay, thank you. Uh, Taylor would’ve sent them in the wrong direction too. All right, fine.

Taylor Self (05:25):

Well everybody swam in the wrong direction last year and I went the fucking right direction. So

Sevan Matossian (05:30):

She was told to swim to blue. It sounds like she was supposed to have been told to swim to white.

Taylor Self (05:37):

Uh, that’s confusing because

Sevan Matossian (05:41):

They, uh, Scott Perkins, they said they changed the swim course.

Taylor Self (05:47):

Okay, here I got this video. Now let me watch it.

Sevan Matossian (05:54):

I’m going to pull up another tab. Lucky camera straps from Australia. Still catching up on events and shows, but you guys are crushing it as usual. Bye. Thank you. And uh, okay, looks like that event is over. Go to Loudon live sport. Uh, 18,000 watching. You said the judges,

Speaker 5 (06:16):

They’ve been,

Taylor Self (06:18):

Ah, this, okay. Wow. So let me see if I can download this video. Let me see if I can send this to you. Savon, I just sent it to you on Instagram.

Sevan Matossian (06:26):

Can you send me a link in the private chat or no?

Taylor Self (06:30):

Uh, I just sent it to your Instagram. It’s a video that someone sent to me.

Sevan Matossian (06:33):


Taylor Self (06:35):

Let’s see what the timestamp is on it. It’s, I can’t quite see.

Sevan Matossian (06:42):

Okay, so just so you know, here are the times from the, uh, first heat. It looks like Lexi Neely and Fran Moose Berger were the only ones to finish that event with a 1745 and an 1808. Uh, although, uh, in seven places cursed at her. And we’re hearing that, um, she was in first place and swam in the wrong direction. So, uh, due to a judge’s error, so that’s screwed her. But, uh, it looks like there’s a massive tie for a third, fourth, fifth, uh, sixth, seventh, uh, place.

Taylor Self (07:13):

I’m gonna see if I can clip it and send it to you.

Sevan Matossian (07:17):

Thank you. Uh, lucky camera straps. We go from Australia. Everyone gets your lucky camera strap. Uh, they did say that, uh, on the live stream, the athletes will get time back for judges telling them to go the wrong way. That’s nice. Okay. Okay. I like it. Uh, the judges pointed them to the blue buoy, Taylor to the blue buoy. Okay. And so that means they needed to go to the white, I’m guessing.

Taylor Self (07:42):

Yeah, if I clip it, it’s gonna be like 40 seconds. So go to your Instagram and take the video that I sent you and see if you can pull that on screen cuz it’s not a YouTube video, it’s somebody’s screen recording of a YouTube video.

Sevan Matossian (07:54):


Taylor Self (07:54):

Right. Does that make sense?

Sevan Matossian (07:55):

Yeah. You couldn’t, you didn’t text it to me. It’s on Instagram.

Taylor Self (07:58):

Yeah. Uh, let me see if I can download it. Yeah, I can

Sevan Matossian (08:01):

Download it. And it, and it’s, and it’s at a

Speaker 5 (08:03):

White buoy. They have

Sevan Matossian (08:04):

Judges that you just saw. Oh yeah. That’s nice.

Taylor Self (08:07):


Sevan Matossian (08:08):

And they give even gave you like an audio recording

Taylor Self (08:11):

With Yeah, it’s Graham. He does, he does my programming,

Sevan Matossian (08:14):

Uh, edit. He, oh, so you don’t actually do your own programming? You, you pair

Taylor Self (08:18):


Sevan Matossian (08:19):

He follows Graham to do it. I had no idea that you did that. That’s crazy. He

Taylor Self (08:21):

My mate <laugh> mm-hmm.

Sevan Matossian (08:23):

<affirmative> busted. Okay.

Taylor Self (08:28):

They, they totally cut her off and pushed her to the blue buoy. I wonder why they shortened it though. That doesn’t make sense either. That just seems like such a short swim. Maybe it’s just far harder than I, yeah, I don’t know. I mean, I knew it was,

Sevan Matossian (08:42):

Hey guys, here it comes a fucking exclusive from Brand

Taylor Self (08:47):

Scott. Brand Scott Exclusive

Sevan Matossian (08:50):

A, uh, uh, a true, uh, tp uh, athlete. I’m not sure if you’re gonna be able to hear this guys. God I value Caleb so much. Entire screen window. I don’t know. I don’t know what I do to get the sound. I wonder if I choose window.

Mattew Souza (09:15):

It should automatically give you the sound when you go to share it. And then there might be a little button that click share sound in the bottom right corner.

Sevan Matossian (09:24):

Okay. Do I choose entire screen or window? Do you know?

Mattew Souza (09:27):

I, I would do just the window because otherwise gonna try share your whole computer screen. There you go. Now when you play it, make sure YouTube’s not muted.

Sevan Matossian (09:36):

Oh, but this isn’t YouTube.

Taylor Self (09:37):

Just play it. You have your volume bar up. Mute Suza.

Sevan Matossian (09:46):

Oh, here it is. I see what you’re saying. Uh, streamy yard is sharing this window. Okay. I don’t see an audio choice though, so I’m just gonna give it a play. Yeah, play it and see what happens here. Okay, guys

Taylor Self (09:59):

Can’t hear him. Okay.

Sevan Matossian (10:00):

Oh well that’s okay.

Taylor Self (10:01):

So see that judge in the kayak? They’re, she’s pointing athletes towards the blue buoy and cutting them off. She is directly in front of the white buoy. They should be swimming to the right of her kayak or directly at her. And that judge is, we went back, we lost the video.

Sevan Matossian (10:20):

Chill. Chill my brother. Let me try it. Let me try. Okay, lemme try it. Lemme try one more thing. Okay, how about now?

Taylor Self (10:28):

Still no audio. It’s

Sevan Matossian (10:30):

Okay. God damn it. Okay, here we go.

Speaker 5 (10:33):

Damn. Judges that you just saw pointing them off. Olivia thought she should shoulda have went right if she doesn’t. So they’re literally blocking them from the white buoy.

Taylor Self (10:41):


Speaker 5 (10:42):

So you can see Olivia’s looking cuz they’re supposed to be going to the right and so they’re not. So they’re swimming at least 50 to a hundred meters left. You’ll see this kayak come through them. They’re supposed to kayak in the middle, literally cuts them off. And then the judges, they been pointing them to the left. There’s buoy.

Sevan Matossian (11:04):

Oh, it’s a fucking nightmare dude. And

Speaker 5 (11:07):

They realize they

Taylor Self (11:07):

Messed up. Yeah, it’s

Speaker 5 (11:08):

Not, they have to go to the right. You can see that she realizes that she messed up. So she has to swim an extra of 50 to a hundred meters. Now they said that they were aware of these three athletes, they were to make an adjustment in the scores, but if, obviously that’s 50 to an a hundred meters extra swimming that they’re doing. So when they pan out here, you’ll see,

Sevan Matossian (11:26):

Oh, let me show you guys that one more time. What a fucking mess

Speaker 5 (11:30):

Here. They’re supposed to go to the white buoy. They have judges that you just saw pointing them off. Olivia thought she should shoulda have went right. And she doesn’t. So they’re,

Taylor Self (11:36):

She’s in first there too.

Speaker 5 (11:37):

In the white buoy. You can see Olivia’s looking cause they’re supposed to be going to the right and so they’re not. So they’re swimming at least 50 to a hundred meters left. You’ll see this kayak come through them. They’re supposed to be on that white buoy on the right. This kind in the middle literally cuts them off. And then the judges, they had been pointing them to the left where there’s a blue buoy and then they realized they,

Sevan Matossian (12:02):

Oh man, wow.

Taylor Self (12:04):

Switch, switch to the feed, switch to the mainstream now and watch the women. And they’re all swimming right to the white buoy. It’s a,

Sevan Matossian (12:10):

Oh dude, this should give, this should give me a me anxiety. That stresses me the fuck out. Let’s

Taylor Self (12:15):

Go to, let’s go back to the elite women. Heat two are going, this is

Sevan Matossian (12:18):

Final. Oh my goodness. That stresses me out.

Taylor Self (12:20):

They’re all on top of each other. Rounding the white buoy. I love swimming like that. I just grab ankles and fucking pass.

Sevan Matossian (12:27):

You do,

Taylor Self (12:28):

I I’ve never grabbed an ankle. I think I was, I think I was, uh, trying to get on the dock last year and I grabbed Strager by his waistband and helped myself up.

Sevan Matossian (12:40):

Who’s Strager? James. James Ger er. Yeah.

Taylor Self (12:42):

Uh, I just, his Instagram is

Sevan Matossian (12:44):

Strager in Streamy yard. If you share a Chrome tab, you will see the audio option. Uh, no audio on window or full screen. Yeah, the thing is is, yeah, that’s not, yeah, exactly. Okay. That was just a video, uh, on the window, not a tab. Thank you. Uh,

Taylor Self (12:57):

Mr. So they entered the water around the 2 45 mark.

Sevan Matossian (13:02):

Look at he, he pays me to give me advice. That’s a good dude.

Taylor Self (13:06):

They, they entered the water. Maybe not the 2 45, the two 15 mark. Let me, let me scroll back a little bit and see when they actually enter the water.

Sevan Matossian (13:15):

Eric Weiss, uh, 4 99. Thanks brother. Appreciate it.

Taylor Self (13:18):

First athletes enter the water at 2 0 5 in the workout and now it appears, see how long the swim takes about They enter the water at 2 0 5. This seems like a drastically shortened swim. Like it’s a hundred yards at most at this point. A two minute swim. They’re at the 3 45 mark now. So they’ve been in the water for a minute. 40 seconds.

Sevan Matossian (13:43):

God, that ramp is cool. Is that the same ramp you used?

Taylor Self (13:46):

Yeah. Wow. That is not even a hundred yard swim.

Sevan Matossian (13:50):

Oh, come on. Really?

Taylor Self (13:52):

Nope. They entered the water at 2 0 5 and they got out at three 50. So a minute 45 in open water. That’s maybe 75 yards.

Sevan Matossian (14:03):

Hey, Sarah got out second if that’s ac Oh, that chick’s going off the ramp. Oh man. She’s gotta get away from the edge of the ramp. Hey, if you’re falling off the side of the ramp, stop walking on the side of the ramp. Come towards more of the center, right? Uh

Taylor Self (14:15):

Oh. Uh oh. Is that Danny Spiegel? Yep.

Sevan Matossian (14:20):

Where in the very back

Taylor Self (14:21):

There? Segel who started to fall off the side of the ramp.

Sevan Matossian (14:23):

Wow. She gotta move to the center. Not still trying to walk on the side of the ramp. Okay, so then they go into their jump rope and then, uh, this is their fir and then there’s another round. They do it again. Yeah, this

Taylor Self (14:33):

Is their first round, but that’s just shocking to me that maybe the comes down to the drag rope. It’s a lot of drag rope dubs and their barefoot Paige Powers looks smooth on the drag rope with bare feet. Emily Rolf is next to her. I believe Danny Spiegel just about to begin her drag rope reps. She is a large human being.

Sevan Matossian (15:02):


Taylor Self (15:03):

Danny Spiegel.

Sevan Matossian (15:04):

Oh, did we get to see her jump?

Taylor Self (15:06):

Her legs are twice as thick as any girl, other girl out

Sevan Matossian (15:08):

There. Hey, why is that girl on the left there putting on shoes

Taylor Self (15:13):

A jump? I suppose

Sevan Matossian (15:14):

That’s a huge error, right? I mean that, that’s Sarah for

Taylor Self (15:17):

10 seconds. That’s Sarah.

Sevan Matossian (15:19):

No, that’s Sydnee Wells.

Taylor Self (15:21):


Sevan Matossian (15:21):

It? Oh, it looks like Brooke Wells. So I’m just guessing that’s Sydnee Wells.

Taylor Self (15:25):


Mattew Souza (15:26):

With that light they’re sharing there. You’re sharing your screen <inaudible>.

Sevan Matossian (15:29):

Okay. Thank you. Uh, so that was, uh, all the girls are jumping barefoot except for, uh, Sydnee Wells.

Taylor Self (15:36):

Yeah, I don’t think, are we allowed to be sharing their stream?

Sevan Matossian (15:41):

As long as you do it for less than seven seconds. You’re

Taylor Self (15:43):

Good. Oh, okay. So I’m watching the swim. I just am shocked that the swim took under two minutes. Refresh. Who’s in first?

Sevan Matossian (16:06):

Alrighty. Uh, so that’s the second heat of the, uh, of the, uh, women’s competition. I don’t know if the leader board is up to date yet. Let’s see if we can find that. H

Taylor Self (16:22):

Powers looks to be ahead on the drag rope and she’s moving really well, taking smart breaks.

Sevan Matossian (16:29):

Okay, so no scores yet for the, uh, first heat. This is the second heat,

Taylor Self (16:33):

Right? Correct. Second and final heat of women.

Sevan Matossian (16:37):

Oh, so it’s only two heats?

Taylor Self (16:38):


Sevan Matossian (16:39):

All right.

Taylor Self (16:41):

Emily Roth page powers appear to be in the lead on the drag rope.

Sevan Matossian (16:45):

And, and they’ll finish the, uh, workout with the rope also.

Taylor Self (16:50):

Yes. And they’re at the seven minute mark and they still haven’t finished. And page powers,

Sevan Matossian (16:58):

Uh, tion was, uh, folded over trying to catch her breath.

Taylor Self (17:02):

Yeah, the drag rope takes it outta you. And Page powers by far looks the best in the field in the drag rope. So they got out of the water around the four minute mark and they’re still on their drag rope dubs and it’s seven 30 and Paige Power’s just finished her set. So at best she’s finishing this workout in 16 minutes, she’s gonna pick her medicine ball up. Let’s see how many she goes for in this first set. Oh. And a no rep.

Sevan Matossian (17:33):

Hey, uh, do you have to squat, uh, to parallel doing wall balls?

Taylor Self (17:37):

You squat below parallel.

Sevan Matossian (17:38):

That’s what I thought. And if you don’t, it’s a no rep, right?

Taylor Self (17:42):

Six. Yeah. She just missed the target. Seven. She’s eight reps into her first set. 9, 10, 11 reps. 12 little bobble. She’s gonna drop it. Page powers drops at 12. Emily Rolf struggling a, uh, maybe not. Page powers, sw balls. The, the best of the bunch by far. Very smooth.

Sevan Matossian (18:09):

Oh, you

Taylor Self (18:09):

To nearing rep 20.

Sevan Matossian (18:11):

You got the judge wearing the, uh, water gear.

Taylor Self (18:15):


Sevan Matossian (18:16):

Uh, the judge to the left there with the, uh, blue bandana on? Yeah, the poncho and then the, and then the other judge, uh, with the CrossFit tattoo kit on the, in the right corner of the screen.

Taylor Self (18:31):

Oh yeah. The, the full

Sevan Matossian (18:34):

Leg, full sleeves, full leg, both arms, neck. If I told you that she used to do meth and you had to choose yes or no, what would you choose?

Taylor Self (18:46):

Probably, no, she doesn’t look like a meth

Sevan Matossian (18:47):

Addict. Oh, come on now. You see, you got a full leg tattoo. You did a lot of meth.

Taylor Self (18:50):

No, dude, they can’t afford leg tattoos. They spend it all on meth.

Sevan Matossian (18:53):

That’s what I mean. She quit, she quit meth and now she does leg tattoos and shaves the underside of her head. I’m telling you it’s textbook. It’s oh one textbook. Psychology 1 0 1. Every time you have more than three tattoos, the chances you of doing hardcore drugs has gone up a, a ton or, or parent or a parent beat you or Uncle Buck put a finger in an orifice telling you

Taylor Self (19:15):

That shakes out.

Sevan Matossian (19:17):

I think <laugh>. Thank you. Thank you <laugh>. I gave you more options than meth and all of a sudden you signed up. Yep. <laugh>. You could have parents that beat you or just an, uh, astray finger. Corey, Leonard Devon. Share that video Heidi sent you with the no reps on the wall balls. Aye, you want that one? You want that one? You guys ask for it? I give it to you. I give it to you. Uh, who’s this redhead? Who’s that? I love redhead.

Taylor Self (19:48):

Oh, Weis. Weiss just finished the wall balls ahead of everyone and it appears that she’s gonna be entering the water first.

Sevan Matossian (19:54):

Who’s Weiss?

Taylor Self (19:55):

Britney Wise and

Sevan Matossian (19:56):

Vi. Oh, cool.

Taylor Self (19:58):

Jorge Fernandez’s teammate. I thought he was competing individual. He must have pulled out,

Sevan Matossian (20:04):

Uh, going with, uh, El Chama and Mr. Dancer.

Taylor Self (20:09):

Yeah, I could have sworn he was competing. Individual.

Sevan Matossian (20:12):

Okay, uh, save to download. We have another, uh, exclusive piece of content.

Taylor Self (20:19):

Brittany Weiss. First in page power second in the water. Uh, page powers is a much better swimmer.

Sevan Matossian (20:28):

This is only a six minute video here, but, uh, this is why I was asking Taylor if you needed to go to excuse me. Below par. Aye, not that page. Chevon. Don’t share your text messages. Bad se Uh, okay, let me see. Close that window. Close that window. Close

Taylor Self (20:54):

The third athlete in the water. Now not sure who it is, but it looks like Paige power’s about to overtake Britney Wise in the water. Yep. Paige power’s a much smoother swimmer and very good at locating. You can see her pick her head up and turn as she’s breathing to locate that next buoy textbook. Emily Rolf is gonna be fifth in the water. So Paige Power’s now in front, Britney Wise in second. They’re swimming virtually on top of each other. Paige Power’s just made the pass. She looks like she’s gonna kick Britney Wise in the face real quick. Yep. Little head kick. <laugh>.

Sevan Matossian (21:30):

It’s okay

Taylor Self (21:31):

That, that’s what happens. You get past close and you either pull off to the side or the person who’s passing you is going to give you a little smack on the jaw page. Powers is probably gonna come out of the water maybe 10 seconds ahead of Britney Wise, I would assume. And then it seems like she’ll have a really, really strong chance to win the workout if she gets outta the water first. She just has to stay ahead of Britney Wise in the drag rope, which she was very strong on in the last set.

Sevan Matossian (22:03):

Amy Kringle’s A babe says Marco Caldron. Hey, maybe, or I don’t know where you are. Oh, Susie, you’re still up in the warm bear. You know where it might be good su for you to film is just, uh, at the ramp, just goofballs getting off the ramp. There might be a good goer reel

Taylor Self (22:15):

There. Okay. I think Paige, I’ll

Sevan Matossian (22:16):

Try to, uh, get over. Okay. Okay. Check this out. People. Uh, this thing, what’s in question here is, uh,

Taylor Self (22:24):

Okay, Paige Powers is getting out of the water. Let’s see how much of a lead she’s got on Britney. She is on the ramp at 1242.

Sevan Matossian (22:34):

Is that squatting below parallel? Taylor,

Taylor Self (22:36):

Britney Wise is on the ramp at 1252 and standing 10 seconds on the dot. I was right. Uh, that squatting Let’s play again. Not even close. Oh, it’s not even close. That’s a fucking push press, man.

Sevan Matossian (22:52):

Okay. That’s

Taylor Self (22:53):

Bad. Who is that?

Sevan Matossian (22:54):

Uh, I don’t know, but um, I don’t blame them. I don’t blame them. I blame ’em. But watch, watch the judge.

Taylor Self (23:00):

Are you fucking kidding

Sevan Matossian (23:01):

Me? The judge is looking.

Taylor Self (23:02):

Well, we’re looking at the hold on

Sevan Matossian (23:06):

The, the judge is watching.

Taylor Self (23:07):

The judge is had too many of what, uh, Gito said last night maybe. Yeah, yeah,

Sevan Matossian (23:16):

Yeah. <laugh>,

Taylor Self (23:18):

That’s uh, textbook Spanish right

Sevan Matossian (23:20):

There. [inaudible]

Taylor Self (23:21):

Spanish one three times.

Sevan Matossian (23:23):

Uh, that’s Freya. She won the first heat. Oh shit. Really? That’s Ruth Bruger. That’s

Taylor Self (23:28):


Sevan Matossian (23:29):

Wow. Those wow.

Taylor Self (23:31):

Those were not even close to squats. Oh,

Sevan Matossian (23:34):

Those were,

Taylor Self (23:34):

Those were literally closer to push presses than a squat.

Sevan Matossian (23:37):

That’s not, Hey, that’s not her fault though.

Taylor Self (23:39):

Yes it

Sevan Matossian (23:40):

Is. Oh, come on. Daddy

Taylor Self (23:41):

Is your fault as an athlete.

Sevan Matossian (23:43):

The judge gotta, uh, say something.

Taylor Self (23:44):

The judge definitely needs to say something, but she knows she’s getting away with that and cheating. There’s no way you’re squatting that shallow and you don’t know it.

Sevan Matossian (23:51):

Uh, Heidi says it’s Chloe. Chloe. It’s, it’s, uh, it’s Chloe. That was Freya. Damn that ass. Uh, I don’t, uh, okay. Uh, it was Freya. No it’s not.

Taylor Self (24:03):

Heidi said it was Chloe Carrano.

Sevan Matossian (24:05):

Chloe is packing <laugh>. That is Jesus completely misogynistic that you guys are speaking about her body.

Taylor Self (24:13):

I didn’t say anything about her body. I just said she wasn’t even doing squats. She

Sevan Matossian (24:17):

Was doing well. You had to look at her body to determine whether she was squatting below parallel, didn’t you?

Taylor Self (24:21):

Yeah. And that was for sure misogynistic. Okay.

Sevan Matossian (24:24):

What I

Taylor Self (24:24):

Thought page power is still in the lead. Her and Brittany Wise trading back and forth on the drag rope.

Sevan Matossian (24:31):

Hey, uh, I mean this in all sincerity, every girl there is wearing a black, uh, bathing suit except the other. Is there any benefit to wearing a colored bathing suit like, uh, with all the bright fancy colors in case you drown, find you safety? Uh,

Taylor Self (24:42):

I think all the athletes in black are just tear athletes. It looks like all tear shit and

Sevan Matossian (24:46):


Taylor Self (24:47):

It looks like Paige Power’s still got about a ten second lead over Britney.

Sevan Matossian (24:51):

Oh. Does the kind of bathing suit you wear matter in a short race like this with CrossFitters?

Taylor Self (24:56):


Sevan Matossian (24:56):

As long as, long as you’re not wearing some baggy shit, that’s like a, as

Taylor Self (24:59):

Long as you’re not wearing baggy shit, it doesn’t matter. Like, like in the swim last year, if you just wear like jammers or something, to me that’s ideal as a guy and probably what these ladies are wearing is fine. I, I think you know

Sevan Matossian (25:10):

What are jammers just like, uh, briefs?

Taylor Self (25:12):

Yeah, like briefs, like compressions.

Sevan Matossian (25:15):

Okay. So as long as you’re not wearing that shirt that I wore as a fat kid in the seventh grade, you’re good to go.

Taylor Self (25:20):

And Paige powers in at 1532 and it looks like Britney Wise lost a little bit of ground.

Sevan Matossian (25:28):

Where’s Emily Rolf, did she beat Rolf because they were fighting for the first

Taylor Self (25:31):

Place? No, she was fighting with Britney for first place.

Sevan Matossian (25:34):

No, I mean first place in the total event.

Taylor Self (25:36):

She Rolf looks like she’s gonna be in about fifth 15. Wow. 52. And Andrea Nessler looks like she’s potentially cl in third. Okay. And Brittany Weiss is in at 1603. So a 32nd win by page powers.

Sevan Matossian (25:59):

How many places Buddy

Taylor Self (26:01):

Page powers was first? Uh, Britney Wise was second

Sevan Matossian (26:09):

And each only how many points? Five 10? Five.

Taylor Self (26:11):

Not sure at this point. Three five points? I think from, from the first half of the field or at least one through 10 is a five point split I believe.

Sevan Matossian (26:18):

Okay. So if she puts herself six places in between, uh, Emily Rolf and herself, she will take over first place after

Taylor Self (26:25):

This event. Wow, that’s big for her. Yeah. Emily Rolf’s hands on knees and it looks like Nestler and another athlete. I don’t think Emily Rolf has even moved on to the final set of jump ropes

Sevan Matossian (26:44):

<affirmative>. Wow. Okay. This is good. This is gonna be tight.

Taylor Self (26:48):

Sarah Sigmund’s daughter’s on her final set.

Sevan Matossian (26:51):

This is gonna be tight.

Taylor Self (26:54):

Probably what? The athlete we see on the left hand side of the screen, that purple and pink bathing suit. The onesie? Yeah. Yeah. That’s probably the most efficient

Sevan Matossian (27:01):

Right? A onesie, a one piece

Taylor Self (27:03):

The swim in. But this distance of swimming makes no difference.

Sevan Matossian (27:09):

Uh, Sarah’s talking to either herself or her judge. She

Taylor Self (27:12):

Was saying Emily Rolf is cramping up and she has fallen back her. Oh. It looks like she’s got something going on with her ankle or her calf.

Sevan Matossian (27:19):

Oh that didn’t look good.

Taylor Self (27:20):

No, it looks like she stopped her workout. She’s not even holding onto her jump rope. She’s gonna lose a lot of ground in this event.

Sevan Matossian (27:26):


Taylor Self (27:27):

That’s not good.

Sevan Matossian (27:28):

Oh, Weiss looks happy. Is

Taylor Self (27:30):

That her jumping without jumping without shoes is, you know, probably something Not a lot of these athletes are used to. Yeah, she’s got something going on in her calf. She’s cramped. She looks like she’s not even gonna finish. Look at her. She’s just standing and talking to her. Judge Grab grabbing her ankle. Uh

Sevan Matossian (27:49):

Uh, Danny Spiegel is still going. She is in the uh, black bottoms and red top. Uh, and Sarah Sigma’s daughter just finished and it looks like there’s at least five or six other girls, seven other girls going. Uh, it looks like Danny just came in, uh, with six girls remaining. Uh, someone else just came in. I’m not sure who that was.

Taylor Self (28:16):

Emily Rolf is is gonna take a massive hit here.

Sevan Matossian (28:19):

Uh, Sydnee Wells is still going. Yeah, Emily Rolf is not moving guys. She is just standing there with her hands on her hip. That cameraman zoomed right into that chick’s butt hole as she bent over.

Taylor Self (28:29):

She’s gonna d f she’s got something going on with her calf and her foot. Uh oh. Oh

Sevan Matossian (28:34):


Taylor Self (28:34):

Look at her face. She’s not happy.

Sevan Matossian (28:37):

She takes a big sigh. She got her hand on her hips. She stretch

Taylor Self (28:41):

Stretching her ankle.

Sevan Matossian (28:42):

So it’s her left leg. Something’s up with her left leg. Do her toes.

Taylor Self (28:46):

Look, look at that lump on her foot on both feet. Do you see that?

Sevan Matossian (28:50):

Yeah. What is that?

Taylor Self (28:53):

No idea.

Sevan Matossian (28:54):

On the, on the uh, top right, on the inside.

Taylor Self (28:56):

It’s on both feet though, so it must just be something genetic. Nothing crazy. She’s got a big bone there.

Sevan Matossian (29:03):

Uh, who’s that girl that Sydnee Wells is talking to? I thought that was uh, that’s not Weiss. Who is

Taylor Self (29:07):

That? No, not sure who that

Sevan Matossian (29:08):

Is. Uh, European. Oh no, that sucks. Emily Roen now Paige Powers are talking. Paige is trying to act like she feels bad, but really she’s ecstatic cuz she knows she

Taylor Self (29:21):

A good showing for her.

Sevan Matossian (29:22):


Taylor Self (29:23):

Wow. Not the deepest women’s fuel, but winning Waap Polooza, that’s $75,000. That’s a life changing amount of money for someone that age. No doubt you use it. Well

Sevan Matossian (29:34):

God, Emily Rolfe is a specimen too. Huh? She looks like the, the real deal.

Taylor Self (29:38):

Yeah, she’s,

Sevan Matossian (29:43):

Hey, that might be it for, for the, uh, was she going teams don’t know. I think she was, I think she was going with like, uh, maybe with Sarah Sigmund’s daughter even. Uh, does anyone know what team, uh, Emily Rolfe was going on or if she was going team.
