Annie Thorisdottir – “I think before my injury I took everything for granted… getting injured made me think about things differently and appreciate things more.”
Sam Briggs – “i’m now at the top end of the age spectrim so i’m treating each year like it’s my last one…”
Sam Briggs – “I think Kara Webb is going to be hungry… she’s going to wanna prove that where she was sitting last year wasn’t a fluke.”
Camille Leblanc-Bazinet on re-doing the workout – “I have a weightlifting meet this weekend and some school stuff… so i’ll just see if I have the time.”
Sam Briggs – “I’m quite a good rower but someone bigger than me might be able to pull harder and faster…”
Dave Castro – “This workout is gonna come down to the rower as the top guys will go unbroken on the thrusters…”
Dave Castro – “This is one of those workouts that when you say it, people say, “big deal”… you need to go harder on this workout, you need to go to a place where you feel uncomfortable.”
Dave Castr0 on 15.5 – “The challenge isn’t the two movements, the challenge is between the ears… it’s meant to be a mental challenge”

Sam Briggs – 7:00
Annie Thorisdottir – 7:28
Camile Leblanc-Bazinet – 7:50

Five minutes to go until we see the head to head battle… In the meantime, tell us what you think of the 15.4 workout in the comment section below.
Due to his height it’s fair to assume Bridges may do better in the HSPU’s, but Panchik isn’t too much bigger!
Who’s your money on? Bridges or Panchik?
This is the first time in a CrossFit Games Open that handstand push ups have been included!
it’s gonna be an 8 minute AMRAP!
So it’s a couple of HSPU’s and Cleans!
Handstand push ups will be in 15.4!
Second movement is …. CLEANS!
First movement is…… PUSH UPS!
