Do these Games keep getting better and better each year or what? What a close competition! Nobody knew who was going to win right up until the final scores, especially in the Men’s competition, which is where we’re going to begin.
But first a shout out to all our Fitmark Ambassasors who competed in the Games this year. What a performance from everyone! We’re so proud of each and every one of you. Thank you too to everyone who stopped by the Fitmark Bags Booth. It was a fantastic weekend!
Finishing in the top 3 for the Men’s:
- Ben Smith (USA) – 915
- Mathew Fraser (USA) – 879
- Bjorgvin Karl Gudmundsson (ISL) – 766
Ben Smith nailed it this year, finishing in the top seven for every event. All weekend long, he never let up. It was a well-deserved victory for someone whose been competing since 2009.
Mathew Fraser put in an impressive performance surpassing Rich Froning’s record for two of the events. For the second youngest male in this competition, Gudmundsson was beyond impressive and held his own all weekend long. It was a tight race right to the finish.
Finishing in the top 3 for the Women’s:
- Katrin Tanja Davidsdottir (ISL) – 790
- Tia-Clair Toomey (AUS) – 750
- Ragnheidur Sara Sigmundsdottir (ISL) – 743
A solid performance from Katrin Davidsdottir and a favorite to win, she stayed focused throughout the Games, never missing a chance to up the score. In second spot, it was rookie, Tia-Clair Toomey, who is rumored to be the next big thing out of Australia. Sara Sigmundsdottir, another impressive rookie finish and one that came very close to winning.
Finishing in the top 3 for Team CrossFit:
- CrossFit Mayhem Freedom (USA) – 1018
- CrossFit Milford (USA) – 1013
- UTE CrossFit (USA) – 1000
If Rich Froning’s name was missing from the Men’s competition this year, it’s because he was leading the winning team – CrossFit Mayhem Freedom. He steered his team in true Froning fashion with some exciting highs and lows for a strong victory finish. That team is filled with exciting athletes and they should be beyond proud of the collaborative win!
Holler out to our friends at CrossFit Milford who placed an impressive second. Glad to see you sporting your Fitmark Power Duffels!
Finally in third place, UTE CrossFit is pegged as the team to watch next year.
We’ll be keeping our eyes open for them and will see all of you next year! Thanks for an amazing 2015 Games!
