The current Second Fittest Woman on Earth??Kara Saunders was the only CrossFit? athlete, man or woman, to break the 200-rep barrier in the 18.5 Open workout.
Saunders, who recently changed her name from Kara Webb after marrying Matt Saunders, performed an impressive 201 reps at CrossFit Kova in Brisbane, Australia. Remember, this is actually the workout:
AMRAP in 7-minutes
3 Thrusters (100/65 lb) & 3 Chest-to-Bar Pull-Ups
6 Thrusters (100/65 lb) & 6 Chest-to-Bar Pull-Ups
9 Thrusters (100/65 lb) 9 Chest-to-Bar Pull-Ups
If you complete 9, develop a round of 12, go onto 15, and so on.
Score: Reps Completed

She posted a shorter clip of the workout to her Instagram with a caption wrapping up her thoughts on the Open.

My hubby is my rock. I would crumble to pieces without him carrying me.
When you own a gym you carefully place your bar on the ground within an Open workout since you pay the bills (see video)
