Hobart's Stronger Pullups Gave Him an Advantage

Rogue Vs AF Tahoe Throwdown

Tahoe Event Eight: Burpees and Chest to Bar Pullups

James Hobart Calls Out Tommy Hackenbruck

Score After 7 Events:
Again Faster: 13
: 7

With a quarter of the throwdown completed, the athletes headed to CrossFit Avalanche, a well-equipped gym in beautiful Tahoe Vista, CA., where they finished the rest of Day One's events.

After its narrow win in the team run, Again Faster had amassed a substantial lead, but ten points remained up for grabs in the final four events of Day one.

Event Eight was a type one call-out, meaning that Again Faster's James Hobart was able to select not just the WOD, but also who he wanted to compete against. Hobart called out Tommy Hackenbruck to go up against on this challenge:

Event Eight:
3 Rounds For Time:
20 Burpees
20 Chest to Bar Pull-ups

The standard for burpees was chest to ground at the bottom and hand clap with the feet off the ground at the top.

Hackenbruck finished 9th at the 2010 Games, as compared to Hobart's 18th place. On this particular event, though, Hobart had the advantages of smaller size and stronger butterfly chest to bar pullups.
