CrossFit Games 2015

Congratulations to Ben Smith, Katrin Tanja Davidsdottir, and Crossfit Mayhem Freedom for taking the top spot at this years’ CrossFit Games!  Crowned fittest man, women, and team on the planet. 

This was Ben Smith’s 7th appearance at the games and could not be more impressed by his demeanor and poise in taking the crown.  Consistency is the name of the game.

This is the rookie appearance for Katrin Tanja Davidsdottir.  Her 1st place finish in the “Pedal to the Metal 2” capped off the victory for this Icelandic native.  We are anxious to see what the future has in store for her.

Congratulations to Rich Froning Jr, James Hobart, Matt Hewett, Elly Kabboord, Lauren Neal, and Kristin Reffett whom comprise the CrossFit Mayhem Freedom team.  Is there anything Rich Froning Jr can’t do?  After stepping down from individual competition in 2014 he picks up right where he left off, this time winning the team competition. 

I am not sure whom I am more impressed with during this year’s CrossFit Games.  One thing is for certain; CrossFit continues to evolve in molding the fittest on the planet.
