Individual Women Recap — “Inverted Medley”

In heat one, Budebs got out to an early lead. She was the first to the pull-overs, followed by Baylee Rayl. Rayl went nearly unbroken on her pullovers and moved ahead by a handful of reps.

Basnett didn’t let Rayl’s lead grow too large, as Rayl took some recovery time following the pullovers. However, Rayl remained flawless through the heat to set the time to beat of 4:45.39.

Basnett and Budebs struggled through their last round of handstand push-ups and were capped, leaving Rayl as the only athlete to complete the course in heat one.

Heat two saw Neal, Wells, and Vitesson race through the opening stages and reach the stairs. Neal was the first to the pullovers, putting her gymnastics background on display.

Wells was second to the pullover bar and closed some distance between her and Neal when Neal dropped to chalk her hands. Flores crept toward the front of the pack as Neal and Wells moved back to the handstands.

Rolfe entered the fray coming off the pullovers, but it seemed to be Neal’s heat to lose. Neal remained flawless through every round, with more than a minute to finish the last section on Rayl’s leading time. She closed sub-four minutes.

Heat three was a tight race out of the gate between Davidsdottir, Loewen, and Fuliano. The latter wasted no time moving between sections — a smart choice, as Loewen failed a round and had to restart.

Fuliano was the first to the pullovers. Davidsdottir did not rush to the pullovers and stayed her pace. Loewen turned the jets on to make up for the lost time on her missed rep in the handstand walk.

Fuliano held a two-rep lead returning to the handstand walks, cleared the pirouette, and went straight into the handstand push-ups. Loewen kept up with Fuliano, recognizing that Fuliano was likely setting the pace to beat.

Davíðsdóttir moved through the back half unbroken, overtaking Loewen, who suffered a costly slip. In the final stretch, Davíðsdóttir’s flawless run came to an end, allowing Fuliano to take the heat win and set the new time to beat.

The final heat for the women saw Brandon shoot out of the gate, going unbroken all the way to the stairs. She came off her hands before going over the steps, but wasted no time getting to the pullovers.

The Brandon show continued as she never let up through the pullovers and was on the back half has nearly half the field worked to get to the pullovers. 

Brandon took a fall on the first round of handstand push-ups on the back half due to her pace. She recovered well and continued her speedy performance.

There was no doubt that this was Brandon’s event from the moment her heat began. She closed in just over three minutes.
