Day 2, Saturday, was moving day! Our cheering section was bigger and our athletes put on a show!
Event 3/4: Wall Balls and Pull-ups/Pistols and Cleans
For both events today Joey and Hayley were in the same heat! This made spectating that much easier and was really cool to have two of our athletes together at the same time!
Event 3 consisted of 104 Wall-balls followed by 52 pull-ups in6 minute time cap, neither of our ladies finished under the cap but it was exciting once they got to the pull-up bar watching them get as many reps as they could before time expired!
Hayley ended up with 34 pull-ups and Joey ended up with 21 pull-ups at the 6 minute time cap.
After 1 quick minute of rest, they were on to Event 4. Lots of pistols and cleans with a 10 minute time cap. This event was exciting to say the least.
Joey started off at a consistent pace on the pistols and blew through the cleans. After a couple of rounds she was vying for the lead with past games athlete Alex Parker. Joey eventually overtook parker in classic Joey fashion and finished with a heat win and 1st place overall!
Hayley kept moving at a steady pace on the pistols and cleans and finished just under the time cap! It was awesome to have both our competitors in the same field, double the cheering!
Event 5: Running, GHD sit-ups, and Deadlifts. With a 16:00 time cap.
Once again Hayley and Joey were in the same heat and this was another fun event to watch!
The deadlifts were heavy for both ladies but they did great and made I happen. Hayley did great moving the deadlift considering her max deadlift was very close to the 275lbs. that they were lifting! She ended up finishing well over 2 rounds when the 16 minute time cap was reached.
Joey had herself another race with games athletes in this event. She ended up with another heat win after pulling ahead of the other athletes. The announcers even called her the Terminator and a cyborg because of her blistering pace. This would be a 3rd place finish overall for Joey.
Day 3 recap coming tomorrow!
