TYR Wodapalooza // TEAM SUPER SHOW + Event 5 RECAP

Sevan Matossian (00:07):

I can pull up the live stream when they go back. They’re at commercial. I don’t think they’ll mind if we show the award ceremony. S’s drying his tears a little bit. A little bit. No, I’m so proud. I’m proud of everyone. It’s good. It’s good, it’s good. I enjoyed the, enjoyed the entire first two days. Incredible. Got to see you can’t really ask for more than what we saw. Typical fashion. Kowski did what he had to do. Ricky’s the fucking man. Colton got an event win. You can’t have a, it’s kind of

Dave Castro (00:43):

Exactly like last year’s

Sevan Matossian (00:46):

Really? Is it?

Dave Castro (00:47):

Colton got into Van win. Ricky wins.

Sevan Matossian (00:50):

Yeah. Was Wakowski there last year? Did he shit himself last year? Like he got sick or something?

Dave Castro (00:56):

Someone shot himself last year. I don’t remember who it was.

Sevan Matossian (01:00):

Oh, Eric Weiss. Sign up to become a member guys. Only 4,628 more to go so we can have the behind the scenes. 2024. There you go. Well said. You know, episode five. It’s crazy. Episode five. Have we shown episode five? No. Have we done four yet? What number are we on? I think we’re

Dave Castro (01:19):

On. Three is out. Four

Sevan Matossian (01:21):

Is coming. Okay. Okay. Four is out, but I haven’t seen it yet. I mean it’s not out out, but it’s done and it’s being passed around to some people, but I have not seen 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 or 14 and I don’t even think five. I don’t even know if five’s been approved by Dave yet. Oh, Halpin for

Dave Castro (01:42):


Sevan Matossian (01:43):

Look at Halpin. Knows everything for grade. Thank you. Hal Endorsement by Michael Halpin. And Michael doesn’t lie. He tells the whole truth, nothing but the truth.

Dave Castro (01:54):

So help me get,

Sevan Matossian (01:56):

I got Danny Spiegel in the bathtub on my 85 inches.

Dave Castro (02:02):

Excuse me.

Sevan Matossian (02:03):

I’m just watching TV in here. So who are the winners? Do we end up with? Emma Carey and Ricky Garrett.

Dave Castro (02:13):

Ricky Garrett, NEMA,

Sevan Matossian (02:16):

And each of them will take home $75,000.

Dave Castro (02:22):

Correct? I believe that’s the number. Right? Less than last.

Sevan Matossian (02:26):

I think where Emma lives that can buy her a palace. I’m not sure what that can buy.

Dave Castro (02:33):

Probably a kangaroo. Buy a

Sevan Matossian (02:37):

Kangaroo and a new mountain bike.

Dave Castro (02:38):

Those are not cheap. Yeah. One that doesn’t break and separate your shoulder.

Sevan Matossian (02:43):

John Young will be joining us shortly. I don’t know where he’s coming from. Hopefully we can also get, you know who I’m going to try to get? Why don’t I send Ricky a, I wonder if I could send someone on the floor. What if I could send James Sprague a link? Let’s see. Maybe see if he’s on the floor or should I send it to Jason Hopper?

Dave Castro (03:05):

Hopper always a safe

Sevan Matossian (03:06):

Bet. Hopper’s always a safe bet.

Dave Castro (03:08):

Yeah. Not that spring’s not good, but Hopper’s, he’s been on 10 out of 10.

Sevan Matossian (03:14):

Okay, let’s send this over to dLAN Pepper and Jason Hopper. They’re probably at the award ceremony, right?

Dave Castro (03:24):

Don’t get too far ahead of yourself, Kevin. Ricky wins the games this year.

Sevan Matossian (03:28):

I know. I think so too. I like that too.

Dave Castro (03:31):

I like it.

Sevan Matossian (03:34):

Between him and Justin Maderis. It’s going to be a battle. Yeah, definitely. Definitely

Dave Castro (03:39):

Hear out of your mind.

Sevan Matossian (03:41):

Let’s talk about this really quick. What do you think about the fact that Fki didn’t put the dumbbells down, made the turn? I do you think in hindsight, I don’t think the first time he did that, Ricky expected him to do that. Ricky let him go. Ricky didn’t appear to chase him. Ricky then had another opportunity to chase him, but Ricky put it down a second time. Do you think Ricky just didn’t care because he knew he just needed to be against ahead of Sam Quant?

Dave Castro (04:09):

I think Ricky a lot like Emma, they knew where they were and they knew that it wouldn’t really matter. Take a couple extra seconds. Save yourself the potential of catastrophe and take your victory overall. Win all the money.

Sevan Matossian (04:23):

I’m assuming that you don’t get money for event wins at Waap Palooza like you do at the cross the games. Okay. You think if that was cross the games, Ricky would’ve gone for it. He was winning.

Dave Castro (04:34):

I would say probably not. Actually

Sevan Matossian (04:37):

It was 90 feet. Right? So he was winning with 60 feet remaining and then he just gave it up. I mean, easy for me to say he just gave it up, but it looked like he just gave it up.

Dave Castro (04:45):

Maybe LER finally talked some sense into him. He had LER hanging out in his head. He is like, okay, alright. It doesn’t matter. I’m going to

Sevan Matossian (04:53):

Win. Win

Dave Castro (04:54):

A second, win the money, do the overhead squats.

Sevan Matossian (04:58):

And what do you think? There was a comment in there that said, oh, here we go. You want to see the award ceremony?

Dave Castro (05:09):

Yeah, I do.

Sevan Matossian (05:12):

Let’s see. What can I do? What can I do? Oh shit, we’re missing it. Where do I go? Loud and live? Loud and live.

Dave Castro (05:25):

I thought it was Waap Palooza.

Sevan Matossian (05:29):

The event is called the Tier Waap Palooza 2024.

Dave Castro (05:39):

Hey, if I’m here, I’m ecstatic. I was just talking to Alexis and it’s burning everyone’s brains at this point.

Sevan Matossian (05:45):

Oh, what do you mean by that?

Dave Castro (05:47):

If you don’t know who the sponsor of a wa of Palooza and this year was, you weren’t

Sevan Matossian (05:52):


Dave Castro (05:52):

Wa of palooza.

Sevan Matossian (05:54):

Hey, when I mute this, when I mute this, can you guys not see it? Not hear it, but you can’t hear it? I can’t hear it. Okay, great. Emma Carey, Gabriela Mag. Then Daniel Brandon, Ariel Lowen in fourth. Rebecca Sison in fifth. Good for her. Andra Moti. Never even heard of her. Sidney Wells in seventh. Good job Sydney

Dave Castro (06:13):

From Estonia

Sevan Matossian (06:15):

And I didn’t make it past seventh or eighth. Here we go, the interview with Brian

Speaker 3 (06:20):

Last year here in Miami. Top spot on the podium petition. You fought back from injury. How are you feeling having accomplished everything you have since then?

Emma Carey (06:28):

I just feel so grateful. Not only grateful for a healthy body, grateful for my team, grateful for my family, the judges, the volunteers, everybody who makes it possible. I’m always grateful for that stuff, but I feel like this year especially, I’m grateful that this isn’t what I’m

Sevan Matossian (06:44):

Is she grateful? Oh, we lost the audio.

Dave Castro (06:46):

Yeah. What happened?

Sevan Matossian (06:48):

That’s not

Emma Carey (06:49):

Anything that’s going to last. Oh, there we go. And I’m really grateful to serve a God who has shown me in the past few months that it’s not all about winning and that weekends like this are an amazing platform to know God more, to conform more to Christ, to serve him, to hopefully tell others about him and just have a platform to speak and what a blessing that I get that through this sport that I love so much so man, a lot of emotions right now, but gratitude above anything else.

Speaker 3 (07:17):

Well, congratulations. It was a close race. He pulled it out in the end and well done. Thank

Ricky Garard (07:21):


Speaker 3 (07:23):

Ricky. Two time champ. You love it here in Miami, huh?

Ricky Garard (07:27):

Oh man, I love this place. I’ll be back as long as my body can take it. You’ll see me here.

Speaker 3 (07:32):

Yeah. The men’s field is super tough. You’ve competed a lot this off season. How do you feel about where you’re at coming? He could be your

Sevan Matossian (07:38):

Brother, dude,

Speaker 3 (07:38):

Injury going into next year as deep as the men’s field is. What kind of momentum does this generate for you?

Ricky Garard (07:44):

Yeah, to be honest, man, I’m back to where I left off last year. This is how I wanted to start the year. So last year was a bit of an unexpected injury that put me out of the season. So I started last year with the win in Miami. Now I’m going to start this year with the win in Miami, sold the mountain bike. I’ve bought golf clubs. That’s the only activity I can do outside of CrossFit. So no more mountain biking, just golf and CrossFit. Yeah,

Sevan Matossian (08:09):


Ricky Garard (08:10):

Yeah, that’s my secret for this year.

Speaker 3 (08:13):

Well, people up.

Sevan Matossian (08:15):

Oh shit.

Speaker 3 (08:15):

Both of you. 2024 tier Waap Palooza champions.

Ricky Garard (08:19):

Thank you. Thanks guys.

Speaker 3 (08:25):

Ricky Ard and Emma Care, your 2024 tier Waap Palooza champions.

Sevan Matossian (08:28):

Hey, they both did pretty good. Emma got in all the God. Talk

Speaker 3 (08:31):

Second straight.

Dave Castro (08:35):

Hey dude, isn’t it weird that the analyst is doing on the floor play by or interviews?

Sevan Matossian (08:43):

I don’t know. Rogan does stuff. He jumps up from the analyst position.

Dave Castro (08:49):

Is Rogan known as a TV man in his past or a comedian, or is he known as a guy who looks at numbers for a living?

Sevan Matossian (08:57):

Brian’s pivoting. He’s growing. He’s growing. They have limited resources. They have very limited resources.

Dave Castro (09:04):

Yeah. Reebok,

Sevan Matossian (09:06):

Oh, hold on a second. Let’s see what’s going on here with Barbell Spin. Here we go. Can you unmute? Oh, here we go. Can you unmute yourself? Brian?

Brian Spin (09:18):

What do you want to ask? Austin?

Sevan Matossian (09:22):

Oh, Hatfield. Hey. Hey. Can he hear us?

Brian Spin (09:26):

No, he can’t hear you, but I can talk to him.

Sevan Matossian (09:27):

Oh, have him and Colton, how are him and Colton doing? Have him and Colton had some words? How’s their friendship? Growing Friendship. Who’s his best friend there Out of the competitors?

Brian Spin (09:45):

Who’s your best friend there? Out of all the competitors best friend Rose.

Sevan Matossian (09:54):

Oh wow. Jack. Jack Rose and Hey, is Hatfield part of one of those families that they had the TV show about where the two families were fighting?

Brian Spin (10:02):

I can’t hear you

Sevan Matossian (10:03):

Loud. There was a TV show, the Hatfields and the Waterfields or the Hatfield? McCoys. Hatfields and the McCoys. Is he part of that Hatfields family? Because if so, I need to have ’em on the podcast

Brian Spin (10:15):

Here. Word you’re saying.

Sevan Matossian (10:16):

Okay. Awesome. Thank you very much. Okay, thank you. Spin Brian, spin on the floor at a Waap Palooza. Shit, we don’t need anything. We got this camera. Look at this. These guys are sitting around waiting to collect the price. Jack Parlow there. Hey,

Dave Castro (10:31):

At Farlow Spin. Yell at him. Hey Farlow.

Sevan Matossian (10:35):

Hey, can we get the leaderboard up? Let’s go over this and then let’s talk about the teams tomorrow and make this short and sweet. Funny. I got two different things going. Two different commercials going. Emma Carey in first place. Let’s see how close it is. Ooh, by three points over Gabriela Mag. What we haven’t seen. It’s not updated. No. Okay. How about the boys?

Speaker 7 (10:58):

You mean it’s not updated?

Dave Castro (11:00):

It’s not updated.

John Young (11:02):

It’s not.

Speaker 7 (11:03):

It’s green though.

John Young (11:04):

What do you mean? That’s the swim event. Scroll over.

Speaker 7 (11:09):

Can’t. That’s it

Dave Castro (11:11):

You to click out of the X on the bottom

Brian Spin (11:12):

Right, scroll all the way down

Sevan Matossian (11:14):

Because there were six workouts. That’s not your fault. There we go. Alright. Same with the boys. Since the boys went second, I assume they’re not updated either.

John Young (11:23):


Sevan Matossian (11:24):

Alright. Can we look at the, does the team roster have the names of the athletes who are on each team or just has the team names?

John Young (11:35):

Heat One has all the team rosters and names.

Sevan Matossian (11:38):

Okay, but we have to go over to the Heat One app. I

John Young (11:41):

Don’t know. Try it on Com corner. I don’t know.

Speaker 7 (11:44):

Competition Corner has them. If I click on the specific team name and I click another tab.

Sevan Matossian (11:49):

Okay. Oh, fuck it. Let’s not do that. Do you guys want to talk teams at all? Listen. Listen to what we’re going to do for you for tomorrow, for the next two days with Teams. This is what we’re going to do. Hunter’s team will get last place. I don’t know if Hunter has a team. Is there a confirmation on that?

John Young (12:01):

I don’t think so. I don’t think it’s competing.

Sevan Matossian (12:03):

Okay. Ricky and Jason Hopper and Down Pepper will all be on one team. That will be our team for the entire week. That’s the winning

John Young (12:16):

Team. I have already talked trash about them, Avon.

Sevan Matossian (12:20):

I know, I know, but it’s good. We need one person fighting with internal who that do. We will be riding their jocks so hard the entire weekend. The first show will be tomorrow at 7:45 AM Pacific Standard Time. Oh, that’s who else I should send the link to? I should send a link to Colton.

Dave Castro (12:43):

Who’s that hard worker right there?

John Young (12:50):


Dave Castro (12:51):

No Street’s. Not a hard worker Street. He’s with Proven Body by street.

John Young (13:00):

He’s with Brute Strength.

Dave Castro (13:03):

Oh, he’s body by Brute Strength Street. Hey, quant. I was hoping he would win, actually,

John Young (13:11):

Dude, he had a great competition, a really, really great competition.

Dave Castro (13:16):

I wish Brian would just poke him on the shoulder and unmute himself.

Sevan Matossian (13:21):

Well, he can’t hear. I think it’s too loud on the floor, but look at, there’s

Dave Castro (13:23):

A hard worker.

Sevan Matossian (13:24):

Oh, look at, there’s Colton Merton’s. We just texted him. Harry Paley. There’s Emma Lawson with her boyfriend Jack Farlow. Emma didn’t compete, but she got the workout clothes on, huh?

Dave Castro (13:37):

I think that’s all she owns.

Sevan Matossian (13:38):

All right. I wonder why she

John Young (13:41):

Didn’t compete.

Brian Spin (13:44):

I talked to Emma after the event. She was kind of happy just to relax and not do much.

Sevan Matossian (13:51):

Fair enough, fair enough. And there to support Jack and then Jack did a tremendous job on his own without her participating coming into his own

Dave Castro (14:04):


Sevan Matossian (14:06):

We sent Bella and Patrick Rios there. We will have a short documentary, mini documentary on Colton’s journey there. We are also starting another one that we’ll be following. dLAN Jason and dLAN Jason and Ricky Mack on their journey through teams. We have some incredible micd up scenes with Colton. We will also be micing up Jason and dLAN during their competition, so we’re going to be able to hear some fun shit talking. It was a great two days. Emma won. I don’t think there’s any surprise. Emma won. Is that true Hiller? Maybe we, I

Dave Castro (14:44):


Sevan Matossian (14:45):

Had her winning win.

Dave Castro (14:46):

Oh yeah. Especially with the events, she, she’s a pretty good snatcher, so she wasn’t going to down the leaderboard due to that. I mean, if anything, she was to be middle of the pack and just climb from there and that’s what she did. She climbed quick.

John Young (14:58):

I think she won the next event

Sevan Matossian (15:00):

And then John Young. No surprise. There are no surprise.

John Young (15:02):


Sevan Matossian (15:03):

Go ahead. There are no surprises here, right? Everyone did Well, I guess the biggest surprise is Rebecca Sison.

John Young (15:09):

You like Colton talk.

Sevan Matossian (15:11):


John Young (15:12):


Brian Spin (15:14):

Question for Colton’s.

Sevan Matossian (15:17):

Congratulations on another hard fought battle and congratulations on the victory of the event. Is he pleased with himself?

Brian Spin (15:24):

Congrat, hard fought battle and congrat victory. Congrats on the victory. Congrats on a hard fought battle.

Sevan Matossian (15:34):

Is he proud of himself?

Dave Castro (15:37):

Ask him why? I’ve got shocked between the last kettlebell lunge and his second to last. Why did you get shocked before you did the final lunge set? You didn’t need that.

Sevan Matossian (15:47):

Yeah. What’s wrong with you? Yeah, Colton. He can’t hear shit. Tell Colton to pick up his phone and call us. I sent

John Young (15:52):

Him, Brian, don’t pan off if you can’t hear us. It just makes these awkward pauses. What do you mean

Dave Castro (15:58):

Don’t yell at Brian? He’s doing what he can, man.

John Young (16:00):

No, I know, but he can’t hear us. Don’t ask for questions if you can’t hear us.

Sevan Matossian (16:05):

He’s trying Harry balls. If Quant won, it would be the most exciting champion interview of all time with Brian Friend.

John Young (16:14):


Dave Castro (16:15):

Someone up here earlier said something about Lauren. It was, oh, here it is. John George. Most horrible commentating ever. You can’t just say that. You have to say why.

Sevan Matossian (16:24):

I didn’t think she was so bad. I was impressed with the comments, but I didn’t think she was so bad. She

John Young (16:30):

Laughed at everything she

Sevan Matossian (16:31):

Said. That’s true. She’s new. She’s new. I’ll remember

Dave Castro (16:34):

Tear and what Lauren’s laugh sounds like after this weekend. That’s what I’ll remember.

Sevan Matossian (16:39):

Okay. No surprises. Emma Carey. One second. Are you guys surprised that Daniel Brandon didn’t win?

Dave Castro (16:46):

She said it herself in one of those post-event interviews that she came here to because she had seen the events and she was excited to do them and she was upset that they had changed, which we had speculated on and that we can confirm it with her own words.

John Young (17:00):

Yeah, I mean both the events that got changed changed for the worst for her. The second event was a really good event for her. The Bar Muscle-ups and Hang Cleans event both got changed to deadlifts and burpees. And then the other event was strict pull-ups instead of chest the bar. But I think the high box would’ve helped her a lot and they lowered the box, so every change was to her negative and she still got third place.

Sevan Matossian (17:27):

Standby. Hold on. Did we just lose the water palooza stream? I don’t see them live anywhere anymore. We’re waiting for the award ceremony. It looks like their stream is down. Is that true spin? Can you confirm or deny that from the floor? Is there

Brian Spin (17:42):

We can’t tell if there’s a livestream or not. They cut it out.

Sevan Matossian (17:48):

Okay. Because just so you know from our end, this is great. Now this is the only camera left at Waap Pza. I guess the event is over. Oh, they did it. Waap Palooza shut off. Okay. Thank you. Daniel Garrity. Alright, thank you. Christina. I

Dave Castro (17:59):

Love when Brian spin goes on. It sounds like he’s in an alien attack. He’s just screaming.

John Young (18:05):


Sevan Matossian (18:06):

Okay, so what do you think about this? You’re saying Daniel Brandon Cherry picked this event. Isn’t

John Young (18:11):

That she did? She said she did. Yeah,

Dave Castro (18:13):

She said she did. I’m not saying she

Sevan Matossian (18:14):

Said it. This is not something that you can do with the CrossFit games.

Dave Castro (18:18):

No, but it’s something she was allowed to do here, which is cool. She’s trying to come win 70 5K and she won what? 10?

John Young (18:27):

It’s still not a bad payday. It’s still worth the trip. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (18:30):

Yeah. And she got to reconnect with her old coach, Matt Torres. We saw Gabriela Awa there. Christophe Horvat was there. Spin is bringing us some exclusive footage. And who took third place?

John Young (18:45):

Danielle, you got second

Sevan Matossian (18:47):

Who took Oh, AWA took second. Okay. Any surprise there about awa?

John Young (18:52):

I thought she did very, very good at the things that she typically does bad at. It shows she’s been working on her weaknesses because I didn’t expect her to be that good in the last event and I didn’t expect her to be that good in the swim and she was consistent like she is in most things.

Dave Castro (19:10):

I’m consistently surprised by Gabby’s hyphen issues, which is a good thing. It’s a pleasant surprise I should say.

John Young (19:18):


Sevan Matossian (19:19):

We go to the CrossFit games and there’s 15 events and Ariel Lowen takes third and let’s say, what place did Mawa take last year

John Young (19:31):

At the Games By

Dave Castro (19:32):

Waterloo or the

Sevan Matossian (19:33):

Games? No, at the games. She didn’t even make the podium, right? Sixth.

John Young (19:36):

She was fifth.

Sevan Matossian (19:39):

Okay. Is this a truthful question? Why are the games better for Ariel Lowen with 15 events? Is it the number of events that’s helping Ariel Lowen do better at CrossFit games or is it just a better test or both?

John Young (19:55):

I think the more tests that we have, the higher Gabby would be,

Dave Castro (19:59):

That’s incorrect because she finished lower than Ariel the games with more

John Young (20:03):

Tests. No, no. I think, yeah, it doesn’t mean Ariel, that can’t happen. Let’s look at every single year. That wasn’t last year, the last

Dave Castro (20:09):

Time it happened. It’s true.

John Young (20:11):

I understand that. But let’s look at every single year besides last year, Gabby is head of Ariel Ariel’s traditionally finished 10th or 11th. Every time she goes,

Dave Castro (20:22):

Boman games is all jacked up.

John Young (20:24):

I think Ariel just kind of got lucky with the programming last year and she executed flawlessly and had the games of her life. That’s what I think happened.

Sevan Matossian (20:32):

So basically Ariel Lowen lost out to Gabriela Maua here at Waap Waza, but beat her by significant margin but only one place by significant amount

Dave Castro (20:42):

Of points. Luckily a hundred points luckily beat her.

John Young (20:45):

No, no, no. The programming was very good for Ariel is what I’m saying. And every year it’s going to be different programming. I don’t think Ariel is one of the people that the programming doesn’t matter.

Dave Castro (21:01):


Sevan Matossian (21:01):

Is about you do or you don’t

Dave Castro (21:02):

Comment in the comment section. You say, sorry, I don’t like Bill earlier with Colton.

Sevan Matossian (21:12):

You guys completely lost me. Okay.

John Young (21:16):

Okay. Next year games. I think Ariel Lowen finishes like seven and I think Gabby will always be four through six

Dave Castro (21:23):

Forever. I agree with that one. That’s fair.

John Young (21:25):

That’s what I’m Okay then what I’m saying last year would apply.

Sevan Matossian (21:31):

I’m going to go down to 2000. I

Dave Castro (21:33):

Disagree with that. I agree with the others.

John Young (21:36):

I feel like those go ahead in hand.

Sevan Matossian (21:38):

In 2022. In 2022, Gabrielle Awa took eighth and Ariel Lowen took 11th.

Dave Castro (21:47):

Yeah, this rate Ariel’s going to win and Gabby’s going to finish third,

John Young (21:52):

And neither of those things are going to happen.

Dave Castro (21:54):

I agree with that too.

Sevan Matossian (22:00):

Any signs of Ma O’Brien coming back?

John Young (22:04):

Dude, the latest I’ve heard is that she’s not coming back

Speaker 7 (22:07):


John Young (22:09):

It’s not. No, no, no, no. You’re laughing.

Sevan Matossian (22:12):

You’ve actually heard that you’ve actually, it’s

John Young (22:14):

Kind of a serious sentiment. It was implied. It’s implied. It’s not like,

Dave Castro (22:18):

Is it implied? Can you say the source?

Speaker 7 (22:22):


John Young (22:22):

No. Alright.

Dave Castro (22:25):

Unfortunately time to start digging on that one.

Speaker 7 (22:27):

But it was definitely, it was kind of like Thad. They were like, yeah, we’re pretty sure she’s not coming back.

Sevan Matossian (22:33):

Wow. That would be crazy. I’m trying to see if I can find her Instagram and see what her last couple posts

John Young (22:40):

Are, but then why post fitness stuff?

Dave Castro (22:43):

Because it’s healthy.

Speaker 7 (22:44):

All she knows.

Dave Castro (22:48):

Yeah. It’s like Emma Lawson wearing workout clothes. It’s all she’s got.

John Young (22:52):

Well, Emma Lawson is competing to be the fish woman in the world

Dave Castro (22:56):

Still. Yeah. What was Mel O’Brien doing? And she popped out of the womb, did some burpees and got going with her life.

Speaker 7 (23:03):

You think Emma Lawson just hasn’t hit that time in her life yet? Like Haley and Mel did?

John Young (23:08):

I think Emma Lawson’s smarter about it than they are. I don’t think she’s going to burn out.

Dave Castro (23:14):

I don’t either. Do you think

Speaker 7 (23:15):

It’s her or do you think it’s her coach?

John Young (23:16):


Dave Castro (23:18):

I think it’s Jack Farlow. He’s the glue.

Sevan Matossian (23:22):

Mike Halpin. It’s a big part of her life. Why do you post fitness stuff, John? You ain’t going to the games. Geez,

Dave Castro (23:28):

John Young helping.

John Young (23:34):

Okay. My answer, I would be like, I am trying to be fitter every single day. I’m working towards my goal. If I did not have a goal, if I was done with my life of trying to be the fittest version of myself that I could be, then I don’t think every post I would post would be fitness stuff. It would be either like me and my wife or me and my dogs or football or it wouldn’t be every single post a fitness thing. Does that make sense?

Sevan Matossian (24:02):

I do want to say this. If MALS not competing, it makes her meet and greet worthless because sports are really, what have you done for me lately? And Mal never really did anything. All the hype around Mal was what she was going to do. She

Dave Castro (24:18):

Finished second

Sevan Matossian (24:19):

And we know she was, yeah, so what we know she was going to do something was going to, as soon as fucking Tia stepped out, she was going to run a fucking dynasty.

Dave Castro (24:29):

Oh, check this post now this is accurate.

Sevan Matossian (24:32):


Dave Castro (24:33):


Sevan Matossian (24:34):

HWPO posted their roster of elite athletes for 2024 season and Mal was on it. Thank you.

Dave Castro (24:40):

Yeah. That is something. What do you think by that John Young?

John Young (24:43):

I’m saying if she’s not competing, then they are in the wrong for doing that. Especially,

Sevan Matossian (24:49):

And I don’t want to waste my time going to a meeting

John Young (24:51):

She’s done forever if that’s what they

Dave Castro (24:53):

Think. I’m going there to the meet and greet specifically to see Mal, they’re,

Sevan Matossian (24:59):

That’s a waste of time and money because she’s done. Yeah,

Dave Castro (25:05):

I’ll ask her.

Sevan Matossian (25:06):

And I wonder what that means that she’s on the roster, but it sounds promising.

Dave Castro (25:11):

The injured reserve. Maybe you could be on the roster.

Sevan Matossian (25:14):

I think Caleb has bad intel. Caleb, what would you say your intel is on a one to 10? A higher than a five? Yes. Wow.

Dave Castro (25:22):

Holy shit. Is it higher than a seven?

Sevan Matossian (25:24):


Dave Castro (25:26):

It’s not a 10.

John Young (25:27):

I wouldn’t say that. Caleb. I would say it’s a seven.

Sevan Matossian (25:30):

Do you know his intel? Do you know his intel? John?

John Young (25:32):

I know the same intel. You

Dave Castro (25:35):

Guys have the same source? Do do I

John Young (25:36):

Know? I don’t know. I don’t know if we have the same source, but I have

Sevan Matossian (25:41):

The same info. How the fuck are you judging Caleb’s fucking source if you don’t know his source?

John Young (25:44):

I’m not judging his source. He’s saying he’s 10 out of 10 confident that she’s never I asking about

Sevan Matossian (25:49):

The quality of his intel.

John Young (25:51):

Oh, I got you. I got you. No, you’re good. You’re good to go. Caleb.

Sevan Matossian (25:54):

The transmission. Jesus,

John Young (25:56):

I’m sorry. I’m sorry.

Sevan Matossian (25:57):

I say one thing one time a show and I get

John Young (25:59):

Blasted every time. No stop. It is

Dave Castro (26:02):

Starting cut into, is that Torres? I can’t tell. You

John Young (26:05):

Didn’t get told. And everybody agreed that you were never going to the games and you should just quit at live.

Dave Castro (26:12):

Hey, as you were saying everything about that, I was kind going back and forth and I was like, alright, well I’m not trying to be the fittest version of myself anymore. So what John said, oh, but wait a minute. He says post a bunch of stuff with what you’re doing. All I do is I post stuff in relation to YouTube and the internet. Oh no. I was trying to war with you there, but everything you said, it was pretty accurate. I agree with you.

John Young (26:33):

Thank you,

Sevan Matossian (26:34):

Caleb. You’re going to have to show me since Caleb’s going to his level one tomorrow, his CrossFit Level one seminar, and unfortunately we’ll only have him for the nighttime show. The PM show. That being said, Caleb, you’re going to have to show me how you’re picking these clips so quickly. That’s pretty fucking awesome.

Dave Castro (26:47):

What’d you grab?

Sevan Matossian (26:48):

What’d you? He just grabbed the Kakowski one where Kakowski didn’t put the dumbbell down, but he grabbed all of the falls


At the swim event. Okay, let’s talk about the boys real quick. Brian, spin. This is a floor camera from the barbell spin that you’re witnessing. It’s the only camera still live at Waap Palooza that is streaming live. It’s for the award ceremony, which hasn’t occurred yet, but Waap Palooza has pulled their stream down. So if you want to see someone get an award, we might see it. I’m not sure how much longer we’re staying on the men. Ricky Gerard in first place will take home the 70 5K. Did Kowski push at the end? What did that get him?

John Young (27:26):

I think he got second

Sevan Matossian (27:29):

Kowski with a second place. Let’s just make up That’s 30 grand third place.

Dave Castro (27:37):

I think it’s on Spin’s website.

Sevan Matossian (27:39):

Who cares? Third place. Thank you though. Third place. Who took third place?

Dave Castro (27:47):

Oh, for the men. Quant.

Sevan Matossian (27:49):

Quant. Quant. Samwell. Quant. Wow. Fourth

Dave Castro (27:56):


John Young (27:57):

We don’t know. I would guess Ner.

Sevan Matossian (28:00):

See, here’s where it gets weird with the men and women because Ricky and Falkowski, you for sure are going to say, are going to be in the top five next year at the CrossFit Games. You can’t say that about Quant, right? You don’t know where Quant iss going to be. If Quant takes 27th, you’re not surprised you.

Dave Castro (28:17):

He’s been on the Roar since he left Bergeron, went back to Harry Paley and is working with him over at HWPO, Harry Paley. I made a video on him at one point and how he was the whole reason for Quant in the first place. Bergeron wrecked him.

John Young (28:33):

He’s so weird though. He does amazing. And then he’ll

Dave Castro (28:37):

No. Bergeron wrecked him.

John Young (28:41):

And you think it goes year by year?

Dave Castro (28:42):

Anyone who follows CompTrain is a moron. Emma.

Sevan Matossian (28:47):

Oh, so just a real quick here. Going into this event, Ricky Gerard was in first and Samo Quant was in second. You’re saying Brent Falkowski passed him up and took his fucking lunch money?

John Young (28:58):

I think so,

Dave Castro (28:59):


John Young (29:00):

What place did Quant get in the workout, do you know?

Sevan Matossian (29:04):

No, it doesn’t say yet. It’s not live.

John Young (29:06):

He had a big point. He had 11 points

Dave Castro (29:10):


Sevan Matossian (29:11):

And then we got Farlow and fourth James Prague in fifth and Patrick Vellner and sixth going into this event. Do we know who won between James Prague and Patrick?

Dave Castro (29:22):

Are you saying that or do you know that? I don’t know.

Sevan Matossian (29:24):

That’s huge too. And you know who else was in the mix with Samuel Cornay and Roman Koff? What place did Roman finish? Because Roman was eighth,

John Young (29:33):

But he blew up.

Sevan Matossian (29:34):

Oh, he did?

John Young (29:36):

Yeah. He was in for the first two rounds and then he blew up the

Sevan Matossian (29:40):

Last boy. This is going to be, I’ll pull up these old results for you guys. This is where the standings were going into this event and it was really close. I think Colton I saw took 18th.

Dave Castro (29:55):

Yeah, he didn’t do so hot,

Sevan Matossian (29:57):

So he probably dropped down some places.
