After three intense weeks of anticipation and working out, Canadian athlete Jeff Adler and superstar youngster Mal O’Brien have come out on top of the leaderboard in the men’s and women’s divisions, respectively.

Both Jeff Adler and Mal O’Brien have previously won the CrossFit Open in their careers.

Mal O’Brien has done it again. She has won the CrossFit Open back to back. With the final results, O’Brien got 115 points while Paige Powers closed in 2nd with 136 points.

Much like Adler, O’Brien also was the winner of one individual event worldwide this CrossFit Open: the 23.2A.

The American athlete is the new rising star of the Sport in the women’s division. The 19-year-old athlete was the youngest ever to win a CrossFit Games event two years ago, the same year she won the rookie of the year award. She is currently the 2nd Fittest Woman on Earth and with Tia Clair-Toomey’s pregnancy keeping her out of competing, there is a high chance O’Brien could take the title for herself this year.

Here are some of Mal O’Brien’s CrossFit numbers:

  • Last CrossFit Games placement: 2nd
  • Best CrossFit Games placement: 2nd
  • CrossFit Games appearances: 4 (two times as a teenager)
  • Worldwide Ranking System placement: 3rd
  • Best CrossFit Open placement: 1st (2022, 2023)
