10:40 AM Central – Fragkou has moved on to the double-unders. Tori Dyson is right behind her.

10:39 AM Central – Haley Adams is looking like a perfectly-timed pendulum on her muscle-ups. She has yet to catch Dahlstrøm, who has moved on to the dumbbell push presses.

10:38 AM Central – Anna Fragkou is the first athlete on to the box jump-overs.
