We caught up with Drew Wayman, who currently sits in second place and  just eight points behind Patrick Vellner.

“I was kinda confident coming in because I did so well at Regionals,” Wayman said. “Event 3, sandbags and rope climbs are two of my favorite things so I was happy about that workout.”

Wayman, who placed fourth in the Wodapalooza online qualifier, spent day 1 competing in a different heat than the top athletes. The leaderboard will be reshuffled at the start of Day 2.

“Event 4 is a really unknown. I’ve never done any swimming in any competition so I have zero idea how I’ll stack up.”

Event 1 – 1st
Event 2 – 5th
Event 3 – 2nd
