Sevan and Carey sent in this video from the Rocky Mountain Regional Qualifiers held at Front Range CrossFit in Denver, CO. The final event for the men was to lift 7000 pounds, ground to overhead, in any way they wished.

This heat was the deciding matchup between the top ten competitors at the qualifier, including Matt Chan (pictured), Ricky Frausto, Pat Burke, and Kyle Kasperbauer.

The fittest guy in the Rockies can't handle a run? WTF? Did I hear that right?

Great video, nice editing and I like the music.

Joe: Of course he can run, he means running is his relative weakness compared to other competitors.

Sick performances, can't believe anyone would choose 135X52, that's a ballsy move.

Awesome performances. I think the video could have given the other competitors some camera time? I think the stronger lifters may actually do better with 135. I tried it with 135 and did very well. GOnna try 75 for a comparison.

i did 135x52 at the qualifier and it was tough. the jerk was the hardest part because my form deteriorated badly. it was very impressive to see a couple guys in the top ten that were still snatching 135 late into the workout.

i did randy yesterday, and if i would have done the extra 19 reps like the qualifier wod, my time would have been very comparable to my time with 135x52. i want to try 95# and see what my time is on that.

matt chan is a beast. good luck to him at the games.

A bit off-topic, but does anyone now the artist and track for the music?
