This is the 18th installment of the complete 2009 CrossFit Games videos, and the seventh part of the women’s competition. Here is complete coverage of the women’s triplet event.
Event 7 came with a little controversy for the women: Were non-kipping handstand push-ups on parallettes fair? A few competitors couldn’t do them in practice, and the rule was each competitor had to complete at least one full rep to stay in the competition. In the end, the top women could rep them out without problem and rivaled the scores of some of the top men. Four women were eliminated after not getting a full rep.
Max rounds and reps in 8 minutes of:
4 handstand push-ups (on parallettes, no kipping allowed)
8 kettlebell swings (24 kg)
12 GHD situps
Kristan Clever and Charity Vale were neck and neck for most of the second heat. Kristan pulled ahead for the top score of 153 (6 rounds + 5 KB swings). Charity was second overall with 148 (6 rounds + 4 HSPU). Jolie Gentry won the first heat and took third overall with 103 (4 rounds + 3 KB swings).
