So now that all of the results have been finalize for the second time here comes some data from the Lift-off.

I did better than I thought, but still I have alot of room for improvement.
Men overall 1748th out of 2148 –> 80%
Men 211-225lbs 148th out of 187 –> 79%

Men Masters overall 221st out of 293 –> 75%
Men Masters 211-225lbs 32nd out of 41 –> 78%

With 3 weeks left in the Everyday Warrior I am hoping that I finish better than 80%.
