5 – Masters and Teenagers Showcase their Incredible Strength
Teenagers were also tested in their 1-rep-max snatch and Olivia Kerstetter dominated the event. The 15-year-old snatched 202 lb, more than anyone her division or the division above. What’s more, her snatch was 2 lb heavier than the heaviest snatch the women in the Individual division hit.
Both Annie Thorisdottir’s and Tia-Clair Toomey’s last successful snatch was 200 lb.
In the Masters division, it was incredible to watch Susan Clarke and Lynne Knapman crack Event 7 in the Women 60-64 division. They were the only two women able to perform bar muscle ups after 25 chest-to-bar pull-ups, 26 calories on the ski erg and 150 double unders, and so finish the event within the time cap.
Susan Clarke secured her fifth CrossFit Games gold medal in five CrossFit Games appearances, and Lynne Knapman, who has qualified for every CrossFit Games since 2010, continued to showcase her consistency by finishing fourth.
