WOD 1 – Diane.

Finding my weaknesses in each WOD.

All of the top 60. Everyone is strong this year.
Which WOD are you most excited to see performed?
Hmmm…just all of them. These WODs are all killers!
Who are your most excited to see in action (men/women/teams)?
Mens individuals. Lots of names in there that can do really well. I’m hoping to see see a good open battle for the top 3 spots.
