2023 CrossFit Games Adaptive Athletes Recap Day 1

Who’s ahead in the run for Fittest on Earth in each category?

The first day of the 2023 CrossFit Games has come and passed with teens, masters and adaptive athletes putting themselves through three tests. Here is a quick recap of who’s ahead in the race for Fittest on Earth in the adaptive divisions.


Just like last year, CrossFit Games invited the top 5 men and women from upper extremity, lower extremity and multi-extremity to compete in Madison. Sadly, the Livestream was a stationary camera with little to no commentary during the events, so it was nearly impossible to experience the competition online or even understand what was happening at all.

At the end of the day, athletes went through 3 workouts: Olympic Total, Farmers Field, and Helen.

Here is the latest updated leaderboard from CrossFit for each subsequent division.
