Grace Workout 2021 Open Recap

The Grace Workout 2021 Open ran from to November 10-17 and featured a 30 clean and jerks workout for time. Weight for men was 135 lbs, 95 lbs for women; time limit was 15 minutes. Not only did we have a record number of participants for this event—54—as well as a record number of states represented (16) and donor participants (13), but competitors in three different categories set new all-time Donor Games records!

Mimi Mahon, who just a month ago took the top podium spot for donor women in the 2021 Donor Games Championship, racked up another first-place win in the Grace with a blistering time of 2:05, a new record. The previous record, 2:18, was also set by Mimi, in the Championship.

The men’s donor category was taken by an anonymous donor with a time of 4:28, and Scott Claybrook, a repeat podium finisher, took first place in the transplant recipient men’s division with a time of 4:34.

Donor Games first-timer Kara Concheck Vincent, who was referred by Mimi, put up the best overall time for the women: 1:18. Not only did Kara break our record, her Grace time was 3 seconds faster than the personal best for Tia Clair-Toomey, the current fittest woman in the world.

Greg Holt, another Donor Games newcomer, was the overall top men’s finisher, setting a new record for the category with a time of 1:27. Henry Morales, who held the previous record of 2:19, came in second with a personal best time of 1:50.

In addition to all the new records set, 9 competitors posted sub-2-minute times, breaking the 2-minute barrier for the first time in our Grace Workout!
