I had the pleasure of coaching a couple athletes through this. It was inspiring to watch them tackle 3 workouts within 7 hours. Josh Nimmo has a time of around close. Congrats to everyone who made the attempts and to those who made it. Also, Tony did a great job with answering the numerous questions. good luck

We are super stoked to see Kallista's name on that list! It was really inspiring to watch her last year and we have no doubt this year will be more of the same.

Can't wait to see Charlie "Too Much" Dunifer kill it in CA. I was on the fence about attendance...not any more!

I guess OPT didn't decide to go for it? Or didn't qualify. Either way, Bummer

I cant believe Greg Amundson didnt Qualify. He heard he Threw down like a Sub 5:30 Jackie.

Oh well, he is still my Hero.

Kallista's videos were amazing. She serves as a role model for all crossfitters regardless of age.

Well lookie lookie, Kallista is back in Aromas! And OPT did not submit any videos. I'm quite sure he'd be on that list if he did!

Great job Peter and Kallista (and everyone else)! Kallista just narrowly missed qualifying at the NW Qualifiers so no surprise she rocked this! Congrats.

did peter egyed not compete at a qualifier? after seeing the way he rolled through these workouts it is hard for me to believe that he wouldn't have finished at the top of any qualifier.

congrats to all who made it. my roommate missed it by 36 seconds. time to start training for next year for us.

i could be wrong, but i don't think OPT had to submit a video OR go to the regional qualifiers. i thought i heard somewhere that since he won the games in 2007 that he automatically qualifies. same for jolie gentry.

Awesome times! WOW, these people are going to rock it in Aromas. Peter did compete in the Great Basin Qualifiers - he was a beast, I think the handstand pushups took him out then. No doubt that he is working on those before the games

Cheers Tony Budding, as well to all who helped you in this very large and important undertaking. Well done, Brother.

Jake Peter competed in the Great Basin Qualifier, finished 11th. Something to be said about 7000' elevation.

Quick Question: OPT demontrated the standards for the Jackie WOD and specifically stated that no rack was allowed!? I veiwed a couple of the girls videos and some had a rack....even in the demo Tony had for filming there was not a rack...if someone could clarify that would be great!

Big congrats to Kallista! The Pappas came by our club last month to visit and I cannot say enough great things about Kallista, her dad Bill and her sister Bethany. Great people. She wanted it bad and definitely deserved. Kudos to Kallista!

Will any of the video submissions be formally posted by HQ?

I saw a couple on Vimeo but would love to watch all of them. Beastly Times by all who qualified! Congratulations!

Sweet, Kallista qualified, she was super hot. I need more videos of her. Girls who still have a feminine physique-- lithe, yet strong, are the best.

Congrats and good luck to all the qualifiers!

Tommy Hackenbruck's sub-10 on the NW qualifier's WOD was the most impressive CF thing I've seen in person so it's great to see him move on.

Great job everyone, congratulations to those who made it and for those of us who didn't. We got a great family here.
