Establish a 3RM Squat Clean and Jerk
3 rounds for time of:
8 Squat Cleans 135/95
The three Regionals that happened this past weekend had us on the edge of our seats!
I cannot wait to go up to Portland to watch Joey, Hayley, and all the other athletes from the West Super Region compete!
First a little Pacific Region recap:
1. Rob Forte
2. James Newbury
3. Khan Porter
4. Zeke Grove
5. Mitchell Sinnamon
1. Kara Webb
2. Tia-Clair Toomey
3. Alethea Boon
4. Justine Beath
5. Madeline Sturt
The highlight of this Regional was definitely Khan Porter clenching a qualifying spot during the last workout. Khan was sitting outside the top 5 qualifying spots going into the last workout and he put in some serious work to win the last event and qualify. It was a hell of a race between him and Zeke Grove, Grove got a no-rep and Khan ran away with it. I would suggest looking it up and watching the re-run.
For the ladies, Kara Webb pretty much just crushed everything, she finished the snatch event more than a minute faster than any other women from any Region that went this weekend. But Tia-Clair Toomey, who got second at the games last year, finally actually gave Kara some competition. Another highlight was Alethea Boon crushing the strict muscle-ups in Regionals Nate and getting the closest out of all the women this weekend to completing it!
