Skill: Muscle Ups
3 rounds for time of:
135 pound Hang power cleans, 10 reps
Spealer is an inspiring athlete, the only athlete to compete in every CrossFit games. And it almost wasn’t so. Going into regionals this year, an arguably strength based competition, Spealer, a smaller athlete, had a tough road to battle through. Spealer had to PR on his snatch to have a chance at making the top 3 which would allow him to go to the 2012 games. His goal of 215lb was surpassed when he hit his PR of 225lb, keeping him close enough to have a run at making the top 3. In the last workout Spealer was behind Matt Chan (2nd place competitor of the 2012 Games) but pulled ahead on Chan’s last muscle up. This victory gave Spealer enough points to make 3rd and earned him a spot at the games, by 1 rep.
