Carson, California, July 27, 2014 – Despite a rocky start to the competition, Rich Froning stands atop the CrossFit Games podium for the fourth time. No one else has ever repeated as champion, and Froning solidified his legacy by winning all three events on the final day of competition.
Froning, who has said he will not compete as an individual next year, looked shaky early in the competition but turned things around quickly to win by 50 points. Mathew
Fraser was second, and Jason Khalipa was third. All hail from the U.S.
“It’s been sweeter and sweeter each time,” he said after the event.
Canadian Camille Leblanc-Bazinet took a 75-point lead into the final day, and she finished on top, beating 2011 and 2012 champion Annie Thorisdottir by 40 points. She is the first Canadian to win the women’s competition, and she and “Iceland Annie” were joined on the podium by Julie Foucher.
