Great FGB score Tamara. Good to see another tall, strong woman in the competition. I think the female athletes are taller than the men! BTW, I think The Chief is one of the best WODs out there too. Good luck this year!

Some facts about Tami not readily apparent in her stats & video montage: Her soft voice, gentle spirit, ability to motivate others and her love of 80's glam rock ;)

We love you Tami -don't ever change...

Damn. I thought I might try qualifying for the 2009 games until I saw your stats. FGB and Fran blew me away. You rock! By the way, what is your 400m and 1 mile time?

Hi everyone,

I'm new to cross fit and wanted to understand these stats. What does

Deadlift: 325lbs
Press: 122lbs
Back Squat: 255lbs
Snatch: 145lbs
Clean and jerk: 175

mean? Are those MAX figures or is there a set number of repetitions for each excercise?
