Prayer for the Open

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the WOD I will complete
If I must I'll humbly genuflect
Just let me do it as Rx'd!

Oh yeah, and world peace too!

Thanks, Jennifer!

Additional Notes

The height of the target must be no less than 6 inches above the Athlete's fingertips when they are standing, feet together, with a straight line through their wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip and knees. The Athlete should be shrugging their shoulders and reaching as high as possible, while the measurement is being made.
If the Athlete touches with just one hand or misses, they may re-jump to complete the rep without dropping back to the ground. The use of a springy floor is not allowed.
