After one day of competition, Chan is in first place overall with just 6 points. He started the day with a 5:13 Jackie (1st), and closed with three 285-pound overhead squats (3rd) and 30 burpee muscle-ups in 5:27 (2nd).
Chris Spealler and Matt Hathcock follow in 2nd and 3rd overall with 18 and 19 points, respectively. Although it will surely be a fight to the end, Chan isn't focused on the other men.
"I'm out here to play my game, to do what I can do. I'm not worried about what everyone else is doing," Chan says. "If I perform at the best of my abilities, I know that will probably get me where I need to go."
