2022 CrossFit Games Leaderboard

Editor’s Note: On Feb. 24, 2022, CrossFit released a statement in which they said they would not recognize the governments of Russia or Belarus throughout the 2022 season. As a result, CrossFit has removed Russian and Belarusian flags and names from the profiles of Individual and Team competitors.

This event began with 20 Pig flips (a specialized implement weighing 350 to 510 pounds), followed immediately by a 3.5-mile run towards the Wisconsin State Capitol building.

Athletes will then carry two 70 to 100-pound Jerry bags 200 meters before switching to a 150 to 200-pound Husafell sandbag carry for 200 meters. The last leg of the final carry included an ascent up 49 steps towards the building’s entrance.

Event One Results — “Bike to Work”

Toomey, who is the five-time defending champ, was the favorite going into the event. She got second (and 96 points), and it was American Haley Adams who came with with the win — finishing three seconds faster than Toomey. This was Adams’ first career event win at the CrossFit Games.

After the event’s completion, judges took an opportunity to review several questionable performances and adjusted the standing accordingly. Danielle Brandon and Elena Carratala Sanahuja were found to have not completed the entire bike course and had their times increased, while Seungyeon Choi was found to have completed an extra lap and had her time decreased accordingly.

Event Three — Skill Speed Medley

The Skill Speed Medley was a series of three rounds of progressively more challenging combinations of pegboard climbing, jump rope, pistol squats, and handstand walks. Each round had a three-minute time limit.

The first round required athletes to climb a pegboard, perform 75 unbroken reps of jump rope, perform 10 unbroken pistol squats with each leg, and end with a handstand walk. The 20 best performers moved on to the second round which called for a more strict pegboard climb, 50 unbroken jump rope double-unders, 10 unbroken pistol squats per leg, and a handstand walk beginning with a pirouette spin.

The competitors with the five best times progressed to the final round: a strict pegboard climb, 50 unbroken jump rope double-unders with a hand crossover, 10 unbroken pistol squats per leg, and a a handstand walk beginning with an L-sit on parallel bars.

The biggest surprise of this round was the relatively poor performance from five-time Games champion Tia-Clair Toomey, who struggled with the unbroken jump rope in the first round and was unable to progress to round two.
