Mat Fraser proves the weekend doubters wrong

    Give it up for Tia-Clair Toomey and Mathew Fraser, they were crowned Fittest on Earth for CrossFit Games 2019. (Stats from here)

    Here's the top 3 for 2019 (GOAT):

    1. Mathew Fraser | Tia-Clair Toomey | CrossFit Mayhem
    2. Noah Ohlsen | Kristin Holte | CrossFit Krypton
    3. Bjorgvin Karl Gudmundsson | Jamie Greene | Invictus

    I would like to call out that Heppner should have got the best sportsmanship prize if something like that exists!  

    Matt equals Froning's record with this win. A few more stats for his achievements are:

    • Six straight podium finishes, never placing lower than 2nd.
    • The only athlete to win three straight.
    • Most Games event wins of any male with 15 and second to Annie Thorisdottir with 16.
    • Most event wins in a single Games with six.

    Toomey, the olympian and commonwealth gold medalist, is arguably the greatest female CrossFitter.

    It’s such an honor to be standing amongst such phenomenal athletes. I am so grateful and thankful for the constant push over the entire weekend. (from ALL the athletes) 🥰 - It was a very different games to past experiences, however I had an incredible time challenging myself and doing what I love the most; competing & putting on a show! 🤩 - A huge thank-you to everyone that gave up their time and helped organize/run the 2019 Crossfit Games.( @thedavecastro , Coach Glassman, the whole Crossfit Team, Judges, Volunteers & Sponsors, SuperStars!) & to the CROWD, you never disappoint. I felt your raw excitement and enthusiasm through each event which made us want to push ourselves that much more throughout each workout. YOU ALL ROCK! . . Until Next Year Madison... . . . #TCT
