Anthony moments after his snatch PR at VERSUS X

The awesome thing about The Open and VERSUS (and competition settings in general) is that we’re pushed to try things we haven’t done. We leave our comfort zones a little more to win, whether that is higher placing in the competition, or winning against your old standards.

This is why we push for competitions. It’s spectacular if you do well. If not, you’ve got some more reps and experience under your belt which you can build upon.

… and you thought you were done with CGO workouts?! HA!
