Greta got her first muscle-up during 15.3 of the 2015 Open. She's put in a lot of practice over the past year and we have no doubt she'll get more than one during this year's Open!

Did the Open last year? If so, did you have any kind of PR’s or try anything new?:
Last year in the open I got my first muscle up! I went into 15.3 thinking that it was just going to be 14 minutes of muscle up fails, but I got one on the very first try…and then failed the rest, but I was absolutely the happiest girl in the world that day. I also improved by 38 reps in 15.2 from the previous year.

Are you doing it this year?  Why?:
Yes! I know I have grown a lot this past year, and the open is a way for me to measure it. It’s also a fun time to spend with friends and meet new people. I hope my dad will come suffer through a workout with me at altitude.

Anything you would like to add?:
In 2014 I wasn’t going to participate in the open because I was fairly new, but I signed up last minute and I’m so glad I did. That year I didn’t have chest-to-bar pull-ups or double-unders, but I managed to crank out a hand full of them because of the supportive crowd around me. I hope this encourages a few more people to sign up this year!
