Brutal that Vibert finished 6th in the world, but still won't be in the Olympics.

I guess it will be Delacruz, Reeves, and Theisen Lappen representing the US, correct?

And for the men, Morris -- and maybe Damon or Kitts?

did you see what happened with these two at the current event?

I did not see, but looking at the results chart it would appear Damaron bombed in the snatch, and only did a 196 CJ?

....and kitts DNS?

Hadn't seen that. Since they were 12th and 13th going into the World Cup, I guess they won't make the Olympics.

I just saw in the published results .... Damaron had no numbers for snatch, and only one clean and jerk result.
So I assume thats a bomb
That dude ain't cut out for competition.

It might have just been a case of having to open very heavy (too heavy) in order to have a shot at moving into the top ten.

I forgot to leave this here many moons ago.




(she publicly accuses Camargo of stealing Catalyst programming/exercises)

I know this was a while ago (2020), but its not like she's 16 or 17 years old anymore.

Lots of Coaches were shooting their athletes in the foot with that strategy...didn't work well for most of 'em, but that's the game I guess

Turns out I was wrong.

Kitts's final ranking was 14, but he still made the Olympics.

So the US team is Jourdan Delacruz (49 kg), Olivia Reeves (71 kg), Mary Theisen-Lappen (+81 kg), Hampton Morris (61 kg), and Wes Kitts (102 kg).
