This is the fifth installment of the Complete 2009 CrossFit Games videos. Here is complete coverage of the Couplet Event.
After four events, ten more athletes were eliminated. The 54 remaining competitors had one last chance to become one of the “Sweet 16” to compete on Sunday. The Couplet was an extraordinary test:
3 Rounds for time of:
30 Wallballs (20lb MB to a 10.5' target)
30 Squat snatches (75lbs, movement initiates with barbell below the knees)
20min time limit.
The top time of the day came from the 2008 champ Jason Khalipa, who used a power-snatch/overhead-squat combo to finish in 11:18. Thirteen athletes were unable to complete the workout before the 20min cap timed out.
There is also footage of Dave Castro’s briefing of the WODs for the coming day's challenge, plus interviews with: Jeff Tincher, Jason Khalipa, Josh Everett, Chris Spealler, Mikko Salo, Tommy Hackenbruck, Moe Kelsey, Jeremy Thiel, Matt Chan.
