An Enticing Battle
Some of the world’s best-conditioned and strongest CrossFitters over the four divisions — Individual, Team, Adaptive, and Age Group — will battle it out for their respective Fittest on Earth® title at the 2022 CrossFit Games.
Reigning five-time Fittest Woman on Earth® (2017-2021), Tia-Clair Toomey, will try to become the winningest individual athlete in the Games’ history. Toomey’s peer, the 2021 CrossFit Rookie of the Year Mal O’Brien, could challenge the elite athlete. Meanwhile, defending Fittest Man on Earth®, Justin Medeiros, will vie for a repeat title as he tries to fend off contenders like Guilherme Malheiros.
On the Team’s side, Mayhem Freedom is chasing its sixth title in eight years (2015, 2016, 2018, 2019, 2021). Dutch athlete Joke Dikhoff, 72, will become the oldest athlete in the Games’ history as she competes in the Age Group division. The 2022 CrossFit Games will run from August 3-7 in Madison, WI.
