Michelle,I know you are disappointed with your finish this weekend having worked so hard throughout the year. Looking over your scores, it looks like the dumbbell snatch event was the one that gave you the hardest time. While those heavy dumbbells were hard for a lot of the women and men for that matter, I did see some smaller athletes able to get through that event based on better technique which compensated for less strength compared to some of the other competitors. I went to the Mid Atlantic Regional the week before and watched a 165 lb male competitor use a squat with the dumbbell snatch to get through the exercise using really good technique. I spoke to him afterwards and complimented him on his form. He told me just a week before Regionals, he couldn't do the snatch with his left arm. Apparently, he was able to refine his technique enough in the last week to get through. Keep your head up, Michelle....you are a heluva CFer. Way to finish strong at the Regionals! Wayne W
