>I won’t have a full regional update until tomorrow, but at the time of posting I do have a couple interesting updates (for those of you not obsessing with the leaderboard)…
Dan just won WOD 6, and will go into the final event tied for the lead at 20 total points. I believe the final from the NE will be aired live at around 6pm EST on the Games site.
BP is in an absolute dog-fight in the SE and is sitting in 6th just 9 points out of 3rd, and 14 points from the leader. If you haven’t been following that region, it’s been absolutely crazy to watch the leaderboard flip-flop. For those of you that pray, please pray. For those of you who don’t, please pray.
Jamie Hagiya and Danielle Hale have been neck and neck in SoCal all weekend, and are currently in 5th and 6th respectively, right behind Val Vobril and the amazing Valley girls. They’re definitely a long shot, but for them to even have a chance, in probably the best female region on earth, is amazing.
