The Ultimate Behind the Scenes Podcast #8 | The Finale

Sevan Matossian (00:03):

I dunno if that’s the It was good. I don’t know if dinner was good. The food was good. It was fucking weird. Service just sucks

John Young (00:15):

At a restaurant.

Sevan Matossian (00:16):

Yeah. Lady had to explain, was trying to explain to me that it’s a fine dining restaurant and that we can’t pull up chairs, more chairs to the table than the table can hold and I told her, no ma’am, I’ve been to a lot of fine dining restaurants. It’s the only place I dine and actually fine dining restaurants accommodate their guests no matter what. It’s like I have a fucking nut job, but whatever. At one point she told us that we ordered spicy margaritas and she told us the bar was slammed and so they couldn’t salt our glasses. It’s great.

John Young (01:04):

What makes a margarita spicy?

Sevan Matossian (01:06):

Jalapenos. Jalapenos. Okay. Maybe Annie Sakamoto will get moved into live commentary. Someone wrote what’s why, what’s going on? Maybe why Did you watch any of the live feed?

John Young (01:25):

They’re talking about Tovar.

Sevan Matossian (01:27):

Was it that bad?

John Young (01:29):

Are we allowed to talk normal or

Sevan Matossian (01:33):

Were we still we’re at the 50 yard line. Let’s get out of Madison before we fucking completely go uncensored.

John Young (01:40):

Tovar was probably the greatest analyst or not the greatest commentator I’ve ever heard.

Sevan Matossian (01:49):


John Young (01:49):

Gave wonderful insight. It was just great to hear her every single time she came on.

Sevan Matossian (01:55):

Okay. That’s the politically correct answer.

John Young (02:00):

If we’re doing what I think we’re doing, that is the best answer.

Sevan Matossian (02:06):

Are we allowed to talk normal Barry Cock? No, not sarcasm. A political maneuvering. Big difference. What John and I are doing is political maneuvering. Sarcasm would be somehow you could read into it as she was actually bad. She wasn’t bad. He just said she’s the greatest. That’s political maneuvering. Hold on, let me see. Someone’s giving money. I got to deal with this shit. Hey, are you tired at all? Intellectually?

John Young (02:36):

No. Intellectually. I mean I could do this for another week. Okay. I’m physically tired. I only eat once a day on this whole weekend.

Sevan Matossian (02:51):

Which meal are you eating? Are you just doing dinner?

John Young (02:53):

Yeah, essentially. I mean I have something small for breakfast. Really small,

Sevan Matossian (03:00):

Like a cup of coffee. I’ve just been having coffee

John Young (03:02):

For breakfast like some hotcakes or something from McDonald’s or something like that. Just something.

Sevan Matossian (03:07):

Where are you from? What state are you from?

John Young (03:09):


Sevan Matossian (03:10):

Yeah. Hotcakes from McDonald’s. From where I’m from. You can’t even admit that. If I ate that I couldn’t tell you.

John Young (03:16):

Yeah, or one time I had a Gatorade and a Reese’s Sticks.

Sevan Matossian (03:22):

Could never breakfast. I could never admit that,

John Young (03:27):

But that would be my breakfast and then I wouldn’t eat anything. I haven’t eaten anything until five o’clock and it doesn’t matter what I’m eating at this point.

Sevan Matossian (03:38):

Hey Andrew, where the fuck are you on the moon.

Andrew Hiller (03:41):


Sevan Matossian (03:42):

Because you are like Atari. Chunky.

Andrew Hiller (03:46):


Sevan Matossian (03:47):

Like pixelated, chunky.

Andrew Hiller (03:49):

I told you the wifi here is garbage.

Sevan Matossian (03:52):

Oh, you’re at that place?

Andrew Hiller (03:54):


Sevan Matossian (03:56):

That’s cool. Well, it’s good enough.

Andrew Hiller (03:57):

You look great to me.

Sevan Matossian (03:58):

Oh, awesome. Okay, cool.

Andrew Hiller (04:00):

Can you hear me? Okay,

Sevan Matossian (04:03):

Colin Lawrence airport. Starbucks. Thanks, Colin. Good job. Thanks buddy. Crystal Baca more coffee. I’m happy for Adler. Well deserve a devastated for Roman. Those sandbags, those sandbags should have been moved for the athletes. It would’ve been better to see Roman and Adler fight to the finish. Why? What happened? Did he step on a sandbag?

John Young (04:24):

No, he didn’t step on a sandbag. He just stepped on the ground, broke his foot.

Sevan Matossian (04:31):

Joe P, you’re the man for taking the time out of your morning for me and my family yesterday morning. Thankful for all you do, all you and your crew, Joe P, your morning. What did I do? I mow your fucking lawn. I don’t remember. What did I do? Lucky camera straps, but thanks Joe. I don’t know what I did. I think maybe you have me mistaken for someone else. Lucky camera straps. Damn, this dude’s a giver. Holy cow. What a last day. Can’t wait to see all the drama and the behind the scenes. Someone said, Hey, I hope the behind the scenes don’t let us down. Stevon, you’ve been talking him up big. I had a filmmaker friend one time, the lady I made pulling John with. If you haven’t seen that movie, you should see it pulling John. It’s on Netflix documentary and she said, Hey, you should never talk about how great something is because then it’s probably not going to live up to the expectations. Dude, the behind the scenes is going to be a hundred times better than anyone can imagine this year. You have no fucking idea.

John Young (05:29):

Very emotional games. It felt like,

Sevan Matossian (05:32):

Oh, it was crazy. The athletes were so fucking generous. I walked up to Laura Horvat today. You’re going to see this on film and I said, Laura, tomorrow a podcast and she said, I’m never coming on your fucking podcast again.

Andrew Hiller (05:51):

No, that’s

Sevan Matossian (05:52):

The, yeah, it was great. I filmed it. I got on film and then we high fived

Andrew Hiller (05:55):

Word for word. I

Sevan Matossian (05:58):

Mean close. 80%. 80%. I mean I’m want to say a hundred percent, but I don’t want to go to court over it and have her sue me. 80%. Hey, today I asked her yesterday, I asked Laura Hova yesterday, who’s the best interviewer that you’ve ever been interviewed by? And she said, certainly not you.

Andrew Hiller (06:24):


Sevan Matossian (06:24):

Talked to Danielle Brandon today at length about her meltdown on the field during the Olympic lifts and man, she articulated it so well. I mean, you’re just going to hear what a competitor she is. It was amazing. Fantastic God I got so much great shit. You’re going to meet Shelby Neil for the first time. The redheaded black girl. What a beast. That’s the girl yesterday who Hiller took a picture with her boyfriend and thought it was Jack Farlow and came bragging at the dinner table that he got a picture with Jack Farlow.

Andrew Hiller (07:06):

I got some random dude Jack Farlow was walking around today. Alexis Trends and goes, all right, I get it now.

Sevan Matossian (07:14):

Oh, because he looks so much like Frank. Yeah, the guys needed Frank, sloppy slop money well spent. I’m so happy for you guys. Hey, where were you today? Hiller? I didn’t see you once today. Not once.

Andrew Hiller (07:25):

I was at the OG place in the morning with Graciano. We did Grace.

Sevan Matossian (07:32):

Where’s the OG place? Is that in the RV park?

Andrew Hiller (07:34):


John Young (07:35):

Craig Howard. Craig Howard’s RV setup.

Andrew Hiller (07:38):

Yeah, it’s cool over there. I hadn’t made it over there in two years, so I finally You

Sevan Matossian (07:42):

Andrew Hiller (07:46):

Won? Who do you think

Sevan Matossian (07:47):

John Young (07:49):

I’m going to say Hiller won. It’s regular Grace

Sevan Matossian (07:51):

You won.

John Young (07:52):

Hey, the lighter, the barbell, the fitter, the person wins, man,

Andrew Hiller (07:58):

John Young (07:59):

Pound grace

Andrew Hiller (08:00):

Sevan Matossian (08:02):

Oh, what’d you say, John?

John Young (08:04):

Andrew Hiller (08:07):

Sevan Matossian (08:09):

He cleaned and jerked 3 85

Andrew Hiller (08:11):

Graciano be correct?

John Young (08:15):

I’m a little bit upset you didn’t invite me to a max out party.

Andrew Hiller (08:19):

I heard you did that the day before and the day before and the day before.

John Young (08:25):

What a max out party.

Andrew Hiller (08:26):

That’s all you do.

John Young (08:28):

Oh, was Max out.

Sevan Matossian (08:30):

Hey, why didn’t you invite John?

Andrew Hiller (08:32):

He was busy.

Sevan Matossian (08:33):

Oh, lucky camera straps,

Andrew Hiller (08:38):

Dude. They’re awesome.

Sevan Matossian (08:41):

What does that mean? How did your straps go? What does that mean? Oh, the camera.

Andrew Hiller (08:46):

He made those for me. Sent them over from Australia two weeks ago. They were awesome. They had these little clips so you can take the cameras in and out really quick

Sevan Matossian (08:55):

And they were good.

Andrew Hiller (08:57):

Incredible. I like how they smell. It smells like a new car.

Sevan Matossian (09:02):

That’s not what I think they smell like, but I know what you mean.

Andrew Hiller (09:05):

What do you think they smell like?

Sevan Matossian (09:07):

Hey, thank you for taking the time to meet us during a very busy day. Can’t wait for the behind the scenes. L D y 2 7 42. Really? You two? I met you two. How come you didn’t tell me? That’s my dad. Oh, that’s your dad. Yeah, that’s your dad.

Andrew Hiller (09:25):

That makes sense. Now

Sevan Matossian (09:26):

That is not your dad.

Andrew Hiller (09:28):

Look at that shoulder.

Sevan Matossian (09:29):

No, but that’s not his dad. I met his dad. I mean that was in a more ripped time. That picture. But wait, that’s, wait, John, that’s really your dad. Yeah.

Andrew Hiller (09:40):

That looks like Tinder profile picture.

Sevan Matossian (09:44):

Yeah. He was with your mom. Yeah. What’s he doing there? Is that a Tinder profile? Your dad’s not on Tinder. Your dad doesn’t even know what Tinder is. I met him. He’s from the stone ages. He’s old as me. How old is your dad? He

Andrew Hiller (09:54):

Looks great.

Sevan Matossian (09:55):

He’s 51? Yeah. Wow. Exact same age as me. Crazy.

Andrew Hiller (10:00):

Does he look anywhere like that anymore or

Sevan Matossian (10:02):

No? Yeah, yeah, yeah. He looks great still. He’s 50. He’s, he’s significantly more mature than me. Significantly. He doesn’t swear in front of his kids and shit. Well, that’s a lot of money. Thank you. Shit, John. There goes part of your inheritance. Dude,

Andrew Hiller (10:28):


Sevan Matossian (10:30):

Buttery bubbles. You think Jeff can really enjoy his win knowing what happened with Roman? Love you guys. What happened to Roman?

Andrew Hiller (10:37):

Broke his foot. Dude,

Sevan Matossian (10:39):

Roman got the spirit of the games award.

Andrew Hiller (10:42):

I bet. Noah’s pissed

Sevan Matossian (10:44):

Noah got last year. He was really trying for it. Hey, Noah deserved it a thousand times more than he did 10,000 times. What about Colton? No, Colton does not

Andrew Hiller (10:53):

Deserve it. Why do you say that? Why did he deserve it more?

Sevan Matossian (10:56):

Noah is a thousand times nicer than fucking Roman. I’m not saying Roman’s not nice, but he’s a fucking hermit. He lives in his own fucking hole. Fe.

Andrew Hiller (11:04):

You can’t talk to anybody. He’s,

Sevan Matossian (11:05):

That ain’t my problem. I don’t think you don’t get to win the spirit of the games work because you broke your foot, because you did single double unders so that you could win an extra $200,000. There’s no spirit there.

Sevan Matossian (11:17):

Hey. Oh, because the stadium got all excited because he pushed when he was hurt. Rome. Rome.

Sevan Matossian (11:24):

So what?

Andrew Hiller (11:26):


Sevan Matossian (11:26):

That’s not spirit of the games. Thank you Rush. It’s not the spirit of the games. It’s nothing. It’s cool. It’s fun. It’s dramatic. It’s feel good. Who’s your spirit of the games piece?

Andrew Hiller (11:38):

Why did she

Sevan Matossian (11:39):

Get caught up? CJ Martin been to all 17 games.

Andrew Hiller (11:43):

No, that’s a lifetime

Sevan Matossian (11:44):

Achievement award. That’s not, Hey, no one else there. No one at the games has been there longer than CJ Martin from CrossFit, Invictus conspirator the games. Go to a team. God, your mic sounds good. Does mine sound that good?

John Young (11:55):

So good.

Sevan Matossian (11:58):

Yeah. Spirit of the games could go to anyone. Go to your

John Young (11:59):

Mom, the people that did the whole weekend on individual, who would you give Spirit of the games to?

Sevan Matossian (12:05):

Fifi probably

John Young (12:06):

She didn’t go through the whole weekend.

Sevan Matossian (12:09):

Ariel Lowen.

John Young (12:12):

I’m not going to argue against that. ERO Owen is pretty great.

Andrew Hiller (12:16):

I could go with Ariel Lowen.

Sevan Matossian (12:17):

Yeah, I mean just, I don’t know. Noah Olsson,

John Young (12:23):

Why? The way you feel

Sevan Matossian (12:24):

About He’s nice to everyone back there.

John Young (12:26):

The way you feel about Roman people cheering for him and his one foot of double unders. That’s how I feel about Noah. I don’t care that you cheer on last place. I don’t want you to cheer on last place. If I’m that guy who’s in last place in the heat, I’m telling you, go away,

Sevan Matossian (12:41):

Noah. Well, that’s fine too, but I’m just saying don’t come over here. Here’s what I’m saying. If you’re in the back and you’re warming up and all the platforms are taken and you walk by Noah’s, Noah will like, Noah will be like, Hey, you want to warm up with me? If you forgot your shorts, Noah will take off his shorts and be like, Hey, I’ll do it just in my compression shorts. If you need your chalk, Noah will throw you chalk. When Noah runs out onto the thing, he waves to the fans. When Noah leaves the stadium, he signs autographs. I mean he just does the fucking, he’s cool. Shit. He’s so fucking nice. Fifi is so nice. You can talk to any of the girls.

John Young (13:23):

I don’t disagree with you, but Noah won’t last

Sevan Matossian (13:25):

Here. Fine, that’s fine. I’m just saying what Roman did isn’t spirit of the game shit. If someone wants to argue with me, that’s fine. You win. I quit, but I’m just saying it’s feel good shit. It’s not intellectually appropriate. It’s not a well thought out thing. It’s just you’re weak. It’s like, it’s like your kid asked for ice cream and he cries and you give it to him. That’s the same thing of spirit of the games for Roman.

Andrew Hiller (13:48):

Who decides spirit of the games?

Sevan Matossian (13:51):

I’m not saying

John Young (13:52):

Not Savan,

Sevan Matossian (13:52):

Not me.

Andrew Hiller (13:54):

Is it one person or a collaborative?

Sevan Matossian (13:56):

Dude, God. Dave Castro is amazing. He gets input from everyone for everything You should have seen the debates I saw going on. How many medical doctors and medical professionals and staff were involved in the meeting on whether to let Roman proceed. It was something else.

John Young (14:19):

This is about Noah,

Speaker 5 (14:21):

So Jim, which just makes me so happy. Yeah, that’s awesome. In a corner is that Noah will cheer as loudly for you in the middle of your gym as everyone. Cheers for him and that is when nobody’s looking. That’s who he is and that’s what’s just incredible. Constantly. He’ll come in and yell for me. My mom, he tells his dog, go say hi to grandma. That’s who?

Sevan Matossian (14:56):

Oh, thats Brola.

John Young (14:58):

That’s awesome. If I’m brola, I hate them, but I get it. I get it. I get it. I would hundred percent get it and I get their point of view and I understand why Noah would be spirit of the games.

Sevan Matossian (15:14):

Do you understand why Roman is too? Do you understand why Roman won it?

John Young (15:19):

It’s pushing through adversity, man. Isn’t that what CrossFit is?

Sevan Matossian (15:22):

You understand? I think it’s trying to keep his 200 K, but sure. Yeah, it could be both.

John Young (15:29):

He didn’t.

Sevan Matossian (15:31):

Could be both. No. Yeah, he did. Didn’t he take third? What’d he

John Young (15:35):

Get? I don’t get 200,000. There’s a steep drop off.

Andrew Hiller (15:39):

Hey, who won last year?

Sevan Matossian (15:42):

The games cross. The games Maderis?

Andrew Hiller (15:43):

No, no, no. The spirit of the games. Noah.

John Young (15:45):

It was

Caleb Beaver (15:45):

Noah because the previous spirit of the games I think passes it off to the current or something like that.

John Young (15:51):

No, just didn’t want to hand it off to anybody just to hold it.

Andrew Hiller (15:58):

We had to bring a width and then give theirs to someone else. God,

Sevan Matossian (16:02):

I can’t wait to talk to you about the interviews after the games with Laura Vett. Jesus crime.

Andrew Hiller (16:08):

I really wish you could just pull those off your camera and have a couple of ’em ready.

Sevan Matossian (16:12):

No, not stuff that I interviewed. I’m talking about the E S P N interview. It’s just so ridiculous, but for another

Andrew Hiller (16:18):

Day. Oh damn. But it’s so fresh. You’re ready to roll with it.

Sevan Matossian (16:24):

It just so it’s, it’s such a step back. We’re so evolved as a community and then when I see those types of interviews with her, it’s such a step back. Okay.

Andrew Hiller (16:37):

Mickey Brazer interview or something.

Sevan Matossian (16:40):

All that so bad. Sarah Cox. Love you. Thank you. Oh yes. Yes. Listen guys, today’s the last night peptides, free shipping, free bacterial water. What’s the water called? Bacteriostatic.

Caleb Beaver (17:20):

Sevan Matossian (22:51):

Sarah write more. I want to hear about, tell us how your experience was. What’s crazy? Yeah, it’s crazy. John versus Hiller. Fit Wars Undercard. Oh, I like it.

Mattew Souza (23:10):

The soundboard is back all of a sudden. Why was it absent? Because I wasn’t here. What the fuck do you need? Who do you think presses the button? Hey,

Sevan Matossian (23:21):

How do you know which button to press? Do you have em memorized or did you write on them? I just

Mattew Souza (23:24):

Go by feel, you know what I’m saying?

Sevan Matossian (23:26):

Hey Pedro, why don’t you have a soundboard?

Mattew Souza (23:29):

Yeah, Pedro. For

@coffeepodsnwods (23:30):

The same reason. I don’t have a Mac.

Mattew Souza (23:36):

Oh my

Sevan Matossian (23:36):

God. Guys, we’re in the media room today and we’re this posse, right? There’s like 20 of us on the media team who are all kind of friends and they were like, I dunno, seven of us gathered around each. We each have our own table. We kind of take over the media room and I look at Pedro and I’m like, wait, who was it? John? John who? Oh, John Young Pedro and Tyler Watkins all have fucking PCs. And I’m like, of course you guys do.

John Young (24:06):

What’s wrong with a pc? Can I ask that?

Mattew Souza (24:08):

I mean a lot, but

Sevan Matossian (24:10):

It’s like people who have droids, it’s not bad or good, it’s just like you know who they are.

Mattew Souza (24:20):

You totally

@coffeepodsnwods (24:25):

The thing about it’s as well, it’s like I can’t even be insulted by any of it because it’s entirely accurate. It’s perfectly accurate.

Mattew Souza (24:32):

This, there’s

Sevan Matossian (24:33):

Like an antisocial component to you and not because you want to be antisocial, but because you just have a blind spot.

@coffeepodsnwods (24:46):

I don’t agree that I have a blind spot. I think I just have fucking cobwebs in my wallet. That’s why

Mattew Souza (24:58):

Shit it.

Sevan Matossian (25:01):

I don’t have a problem with Laurel Hoba winning the games. I don’t have a problem with Jeffrey Adler winning the games. Someone in our thread, I don’t want to say who, I hope he comes on the show, said, Hey, do you think that Bakowski threw the last event so Roman could win? I was like, that’s dumb.

John Young (25:17):

He’s on the screen.

Sevan Matossian (25:19):

Oh, where is he?

John Young (25:21):

The guy who said that? Oh no, he is not. Nevermind. Sorry, Hillary. I thought it was you.

Sevan Matossian (25:24):

That’s crazy, right? There’s no fucking way, right? No,

John Young (25:31):

No. I watched his arms flutter and then him fail to hold them up during the lunch. He just broke down and blew up.

@coffeepodsnwods (25:40):

He also looked like his quads were under a lot of pressure when he was sitting down at the end, he was standing up, sitting down and rubbing them loads and standing up, sitting down,

Mattew Souza (25:49):

Rubbing ’em. Loads, loads,

@coffeepodsnwods (25:51):


Mattew Souza (25:54):

Fergie showed lots of

@coffeepodsnwods (25:55):

Rob a load on his quads.

Sevan Matossian (25:57):

Lots of love in the chat for you this weekend. I hope you felt it. I didn’t see any of the broadcast. Zero. Not even one second of it, but I will say this, the people at the CrossFit games, the staff, the volunteers, the patrons, it was crazy how much I was embraced. I didn’t get one negative. It was a hundred percent positive. Not even like someone saying, Hey, what are you doing? Nothing in a few months. I’ll tell you some other crazy shit too. Yeah, it was nuts. It was nuts.

@coffeepodsnwods (26:38):

Like there’s an embargo in information.

Sevan Matossian (26:41):

Well, I don’t, I still got to fly home and it just wanted

@coffeepodsnwods (26:46):

Wait to get

Mattew Souza (26:46):

Out of outside state borders before, but

Sevan Matossian (26:51):

It was crazy. Even people who hated me were nice to me. It was crazy and I was nice to everyone.

@coffeepodsnwods (27:01):

The background

Sevan Matossian (27:02):


@coffeepodsnwods (27:03):

Who’s watching this back? I can hear Savanna telling the same story twice there. Or is that just me?

Mattew Souza (27:09):

That ain’t me.

@coffeepodsnwods (27:10):

There’s an echo somewhere.

Mattew Souza (27:12):

It’s the background of Caleb’s thing. That’s why he’s muted.

Sevan Matossian (27:16):

Roman mentioning he was wanted to be a hero to his son’s spirit of the games material right there. Oh please.

Mattew Souza (27:24):

Spirit of the games.

Sevan Matossian (27:26):

I just want to beat my son in tennis. He’s eight.

@coffeepodsnwods (27:29):

One of the weirdest things I saw this weekend and I saw a lot of weird shit was when

Sevan Matossian (27:34):

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Go

@coffeepodsnwods (27:36):

When Maybe it’s just a phrasing that caught me off guard. But when Invictus won, I know none of you give a fuck about teams. But when Invictus won Lauren, who I like asked Joshua Shama, now this is your last year on a team and you’ve just won gold and you’re expecting your first child. And it was a big round of calls. Lovely moment. And then she was like, she goes, have your message for your unborn son. And I was like, why does that sound like such a weird way to ask that question? Oh

Sevan Matossian (28:03):

Jesus Christ, Jesus.

Andrew Hiller (28:05):

I thought it was weird too. I was watching that.

@coffeepodsnwods (28:07):

The phrasing of it. Where

Sevan Matossian (28:08):

Did you see that? Where did you see that?

@coffeepodsnwods (28:11):

She was on the big screen on the Lauren

Sevan Matossian (28:14):

Kil was on the big screen.

@coffeepodsnwods (28:15):

No, Lauren Smith.

Sevan Matossian (28:17):

Who’s that?

Andrew Hiller (28:19):

She was doing

@coffeepodsnwods (28:21):

The Nikki’s job for the teams basically. I dunno what’s here. What do you call that? I dunno. Field whatever. Courtside reporter. Basically. Field reporter. Yeah, that’s the one. Thanks John.

Sevan Matossian (28:32):

Yeah. When you’re born, don’t tear your mom’s.

Mattew Souza (28:37):


Sevan Matossian (28:38):

What kind of question is that? Yeah, it’s a weird one. Oh yeah, I recognize her.

@coffeepodsnwods (28:42):

The phrasing was just weird. I think it was like, I dunno, there’s just different ways you could phrase it. It just, unborn sun just sounded like a weird, I dunno. It just was weird.

Andrew Hiller (28:53):

Hey, can I please say off of that? That team finale was the best workout of the entire weekend.

Sevan Matossian (29:00):

Why do you say that? The programming of it. You mean

Andrew Hiller (29:03):

The programming of the team? Competition was incredible. Everything I saw and then that finale was the best workout. Hands down

@coffeepodsnwods (29:10):

That it was carnage. With that earthworm, it caused such carnage.

Sevan Matossian (29:15):

You liked it when CrossFit East Nashville dropped it and that thing just slammed Andrea. Andrea and this the ground Tim

@coffeepodsnwods (29:22):

Flying back into the rest of the team,

Andrew Hiller (29:26):

The heand walking component of it was very cool. You had to do 96 feet unbroken and all four athletes were going at once and there were athletes that were catching up to their teammates. They had no idea because when you handstand walk, you don’t know who’s in front of you. And there’d be athletes that would get 92 feet and they’d have to go all the way back to the beginning.

Sevan Matossian (29:45):

Hey, how many teams were out there at a time? Hiller

Andrew Hiller (29:50):

10. There was 40 people Hansen walking simultaneously and it was wicked.

Sevan Matossian (29:55):

I thought I was looking at a fucking moving Salvador Dali painting like I was on as.
