    This Aussie chick once again Tia-Clair Toomey 25 years old and Jacked all natty and a former Olympian lifter she basically destroyed every other chick and is back to back champion, it shows A level Athletes will dominate this sport. She is clean because she has been tested year round under Olympic blood testing WADA. She is probably going to reign for a long time. A lot of those other female Crossfitters have to take roids to compete but they are no match for a natural A level athlete and Olympic power lifter.

    LOL...

    <WellThere>

    Exactly. A post from last night in a RIP'd thread:


    I'll take competitive Strongmen, Raw Powerlifters, and Oly Lifters over Crossfitters any day of the week.

    The lifters are real athletes. You see, they're actually the best in the world at specific parameters (absolute strength, absolute power) while the Crossfitters are just a bunch of nerds who design gym routines with niche parameters that nobody else in the world even cares about. They're out there competing against nobody but themselves, and aren't objectively supreme in any single physiological metric I've ever seen, not even workload (i.e. work per minute).

    Ironically, their emphasis on work over 1RPM means they're not even particularly skilled at what they do, with their sloppy ass form, and the only thing they do is cross-train, when the entire point of cross-training is to heighten your capability for a more specific task or competition.

    Whenever I watch Crossfit "competitions", I exhale a deep, deep sigh of exasperation, and I find myself thinking, in Michael Caine's voice, "What's the point of all those pushups if you can't kick anyone's ass in anything?"

    The guy who could do the most pushups used to get a Guiness World Record entry, and that was that, but now there's an entire culture devoted to fetishizing sport preparation. Meanwhile, all the real talents are off competing in...actual sports.

    and she's only a mediocre Australian weightlifter too- the commonwealth and anglo nations are the world's worst at weightlifting. Just imagine when true weightlifing beasts discover Crossfit.

    I wanna see these gigantic Slav and Chinese women dominate those soccer moms at Crossfit Games and leave the executives panicked as they struggle to market them.

    Not to be that guy, but..... 'power-lifting' is not an Olympic sport.

    And to be clear, she became an Olympic weightlifter only after she learned how to lift weights in crossfit. She was originally a runner. She qualified for the Olympics after only an 18 month dedicated weight training program.

    most weightlifting training programs recruit from track and field athletes. The Chinese program in particular is notable for finding weightlifting talent among sprinters and jumpers.

    Wasn't it pretty close with the women? I'm not sure how you can say she dominated every other woman there. Matt Fraser was never really in danger of losing on the men's side.
