Congratulations to everyone who participated in this week’s Open workout–a couplet of squat snatches ascending in weight, and chest-to-bar pull-ups. For many of you, both of these movements were daunting, and for all, the eventual weight of the squat snatch was formidable. Often, when we know that we are not going to get as many repetitions in a workout like this, it can be demoralizing to even try; so, to those of you who came in and gave it your best, we are UBER-proud!

Athletes with Potential to Advance
Megin is in 5th place in CT, 29th in the Northeast Region, and 291st in the world (out of 140,800 competitors!). Megin must creep up 9 spots in the next two weeks to qualify for the East Regional in May. We have no doubt in our minds that she can do this!
John is currently 2nd in CT, 4th in the Northeast, and 33rd in the world (out of 12,400 competitors!) for the 45-49 age division. John must remain in the top 200 in the world to advance to the Master’s Online Qualifier in April. He pretty much has this in the bag (I can say it, but he can’t ;).
Geno is currently 2nd in CT, 4th in the Northeast, and 60th in the world (out of 3,650 athletes!) for the 55-59 age division. Geno must remain in the top 200 in the world to advance to the Master’s Online Qualifier in April. He’s got this!
LP is 1st in CT, 8th in the Northeast, and 119th in the world (out of 25,000 competitors!) for the 35-39 age division. Lauren must remain in the top 200 in the world to advance to the Master’s Online Qualifier in April…let’s all pray for double-unders in massive volume!
Mary is currently 5th in CT, 23rd in the Northeast, and 205 in the world (out of 10,400 competitors!) for the 50-54 age division. Mary must creep up FIVE SPOTS to the top 200 in the world to advance to the Master’s Online Qualifier in April. Come on, Shoreline, let’s get behind Mary this week!!!!!!!! She can do this!
Connie Meierdiercks is 7th in CT out of 250 athletes for the Women’s 35-39 age division!
Terry O’Hara is 13th in CT out of 43 athletes for the Women’s 55-59 age division!
Lara McGlashan is 11th in CT out of 196 athletes for the Women’s 45-49 age division.
Moments of Inspiration
Okay, so let’s talk about Meg O’s FINISHING this workout!!! We all know that she’s strong, but to get into those later rounds definitely involves some serious cardiovascular endurance. Meg was awe-inspiring to watch this week; incredibly composed and confident.
Next, Bianca Fiondella and Will Brown left discouraged Friday night after not achieving any reps at the 185/135 weights. These two tenaciously returned on Monday to both achieve THREE reps at these weights!
How about the silent assassin of 17.3, Joey Herten, beating EVERY MALE at SA this week??!!! That overhead mobility sure pays off!
And can we talk about Colby Morawski…who knew he could snatch 185??!!! Colby had a strong performance this week, finally beating his superhero wife, and contributing a score for his team.
Lastly, how adorable is Charly Weiss performing this workout a second time with her older son judging her?!! He leaned over to her at one point and said, “Keep going mom; you’re already two reps better than the last time.” What a great lesson for for him in the value of persistence. Charly earned a spot on the Scaled Leaderboard this week!
I look forward to more inspiring performances this week! See you all Friday night at 6:30!
