Games09TanyaSnatch135.jpg"You lift like a girl," should be taken as the highest of compliments, especially if the girl you refer to is Tanya Wagner, this years CrossFit Games Champion and the Fittest Woman Alive. Tanya solidified her lead with the second best performance overall in the Snatch Event.

Tanya entered Sunday with a two point lead over Annie Thorisdotter. In the snatch event she lifted 135 pounds, ten pounds less than Tamara Holmes, but enough to maintain her lead in the overall competition.

Well done Tanya~ your video shows a calm, "get my task done", candid, class act of an athlete.

Congratulations again on your repeat title.

that wuz a super fun event. despite the uneven ground and hard-to-hook-grip standard diameter bars (well, difficult for me n my stubby fingers). I only wished that I could have spectated our heat! it wuz so cool to be surrounded by women puttin up heavy weight and to the thrill of the crowd!

I do want to say that many of those failed attempts of mine were at 95 lbs, not 75 lbs (I was adding metal 5's to the 15 bumpers). I may not have lifted much that day, but I did toss up a 95 in the end. The scrawny kid's got to save her pride somehow ;)

Tanya Wagner and Kristan Clever-- yall are a couple of rock stars!
