Headcoach Ramon Gysin sums up the numbers, what, why and how of Open WOD 16.3:

What a nice Chipper. The Deadlift will fatique your rowing. The Wall Balls will fatique your Handstand Push-ups. Where this is a great opportunity for people going rx’d even when they are struggling with certain skills or gymnastics, for the higher level athletes this one really came down on how well you perform at Handstand Push-ups. I said it last year and I will repeat it again. Some people are born to do Handstand Push-ups and others aren’t. Leverage makes a huge difference (and so did various interpretations on standards, but let’s not elaborate on that…).

Our team peformed very consistent with an outstanding performance of Alessia Wälchli, she is the female top scorer in Switzerland. Congratulations!

We have still 5 Girls in the top 20 of Switzerland.
