I Hope it's OK to post this, I was looking for team results/news but couldn't find much. I put these results together from the teamusa website.

Also, you really should check out the happy ending to Gillian Formaneck's C&J at 4:24:50 (Warning: girl's should have tissues at hand):)

Finally, for what it's worth, regarding your comment in the blog: One "silly reason" for competing from a purely selfish perspective is, in a word -Inspiration. There are dozens of website offering online advice so it's quite impressive to see someone lead by example. You know, "Walk the Walk" so to speak. So thanks for putting it all out there by bringing a great team, coaching the event and competing. Bravo!

Do you have video of Jessica's snatch save? That was a great session to watch even if she had to lift as a 63. I realized as she was heading onto the platform that the last C&J call had to be a mistake, and I wanted to jump up and down and yell. She smoked it, though. Good to meet you and most of the team!

Hi Tamara,

Unfortunately the video for Sunday's sessions, in which Jessica competed is "still being processed". So it's not available for viewing yet. The best I could do was find some really nice photo's on the Hookgrip Facebook page:

BTW, is this you? Or just coincidence? Nice job!
