When there are seconds left on the clock, it doesn’t matter if the guy next to you is 10 reps ahead or 10 reps behind your score, you cheer and yell and scream for the other guy. What matters the most is being there to push that person to their limit, to see them nail that one last rep.
If you are one of the ones yelling, you know how great it is to see someone push themselves and achieve. That is all that matters at that moment. If you are the one hitting the WOD looking at a wall of screaming support right in front of you, you too know the importance of that, and feed off of the energy level to move that bar one more time off the ground.
Nobody in our gym doing the 12.2 Open WOD had expectations of qualifying for Regionals. We were all there to make ourselves better, test ourselves, and to be there for the guy right next to us and cheer them on. Sure, the Games is a competition and we are all there to do that, however, when it comes down to the last minute of the AMRAP, the intensity gets jacked through the roof. Everything is turned up about 12 notches. Yelling. Sweat. Determination. Fighting. That is where it counts the most, the home stretch.
I took this photo of one of our guys doing the 12.2 WOD. He had about 30 seconds on the clock and all everyone wanted in those few seconds was for him to do only his best, and then some.
This is what the Games is all about.
