Takeaways from the CrossFit Games Predictions

Both Robbie and Robert have come up with the same names for the top 5 in the women’s division, however, they put them in a different order. However, that is not to say it is a clear cut of who is best and who is struggling to become the Fittest on Earth.

One thing is indisputable: Tia-Clair Toomey will likely secure her 6th title in a row asserting her dominance in the sport even further. The young rising stars of Haley Adams and Mal O’Brien are also undeniable, but there are a few incredible athletes that were left out that could be in the top 5 such as Danielle Brandon, Jacqueline Dahlstrom, Kristi Eramo O’Connell or the two ones to watch Karin Freyova and Kara Saunders.

The men’s division gets a little bit more interesting as both Robbie and Robert put the same 4 athletes on their list but not in the same order. Robbie believes Medeiros will continue his legacy and defend his title while Robert trust that the Canadian flag from Pat Vellner will be standing on top of the podium at the end of the competition.

It is safe to assume it is anyone’s guess now for the title of Fittest on Earth. Clearly, any of the other names mentioned above has a real chance of being crowned the best of the best come Sunday evening. Other names not mentioned above but could also be in the run are Jonne Koski, BK Gudmundsson, Dallin Pepper, and Noah Ohlsen.

The Livestream for the video of the first day of the CrossFit Games is below, although it will only start on Wednesday.
