WaPo did a write up of me and @gabisubert bench off yesterday! Check it out. Vid is my 67kg bench pr #forthewin Falls Church, VA - After almost seven months of hype, the bench battle between Fitsistas Caitlin Vodopia and Gabi Subert was settled this past Saturday. Subert and Vodopia are both known as weightlifters but entered the 5 Rings Fitness Backyard Meet both with the goal of putting up a bigger bench PR then the other, and the battle did not disappoint. The ladies hit the exact same three attempts with no misses. In a stunning turn of events, the meet organizers opted for a fourth lift as tie-breaker. There had to be a winner. ESPN reported on Friday that Vodopia was planning on opening 2.5kg lower then Subert. In the post meet press conference, Vodopia commented that it was not fake news, but that she realized she "couldn't concede a loss before the meet even started. It's just not how I roll." During warmups, Vodopia made an adjustment to her opener to match Subert at 60kg. Both ladies also smoked 62.5kg and 65kg. The fourth lift tie breaker was blind submission style; each lady gave their final attempt number without knowing what the other selected. Vodopia lifted first, completing a grinder at 67kg. The pressure was on for Subert as she had called for 67.5kg for the win. She faulted on her attempt at the pause and sealed her fate. With the Backyard Meet being so close to the nation's capital, we asked President Donald Trump what he thought of the results. "Both ladies hit YUGE PRs. I was very proud of them. But, Caitlin's a winner. She voted for me, she won. She competed in a bench-off, she won. She's a winner, just like me. Have you seen my electoral map of the states I won? Here, look at this..." In a final comment, when asked about gyms in the area, Mr. Trump stated, "I know a lot of gyms in the area, believe me, you don't get to look like this without going to the gym. And let me tell you, the people at 5 Rings, they're the best. Great people."
