Lucy-you are correct but those girls are specialists, James can do it all, from a 10K to gymnastics movements to a 1 rep max lift. If you are competing, I wish you all the best.

Scott, if you are competing, make sure to refer to them as "women" not "girls" or they will mop the floor with you even more.
