Event Six Highlights

Fabian Beneito Seles continued his climb up the rankings with his second consecutive event win and third overall. He and Brent Fikowski traded leads throughout the event, with Beneito Selles taking a slight lead after the second set sandbag carry, defeating Fikowski on the jump rope.

Beneito Seles had little trouble with the heavy rope pairs and finished in 4:02.35, seven seconds ahead of Fikowski, who finished second. Beneito Selles’ win moved him into second place overall after starting the day in seventh place. Fikovski remained the leader in the general classification.

Yorgos Karavis won the opening heat with a time of 4:11.91, which placed him third, followed by Angel Ekai and Moritz Fiebig in fourth and fifth place respectively.

For the women, it became a two-man race. Emily Rolfe and Matilda Garnes it was going back and forth all over the place. Both women reached the jump ropes first and it was a sprint to the finish as Garns edged out Rolfe by less than a second for her first race win.

Rolfe’s second consecutive top-five finish moved her into a spot on the podium with two events remaining. Andrea Solberg won the opening heat in an impressive time of 4:44.84, finishing nearly a minute ahead of every other woman in her heat.

Karin Freyova continued to build on her lead in the overall points, placing fourth in the event, her fourth top-5 finish in six events. Manon Angonese recovered from an equipment malfunction with a jump rope to start his competition to take fifth place. Because of this mistake, she was able to repeat the race in the men’s heat and finished ahead of three men in that heat with a time of 5:08.45.
