CrossFit Mayhem Freedom has been crowned the Fittest on Earth in the team’s category at the end of the 2022 CrossFit Games. This is the 6th time Rich Froning’s team has secured the title, which continues their claim of being the most successful team to date in the Sport.
CrossFit Mayhem Freedom Ascension to Glory
During the 2022 CrossFit Games, although always in the top 3, people speculated if this year was going to be the year we see Froning and his team not destroying the competition. That is what happens when you have been dominating so much and for so long. But after the fourth event, CrossFit Mayhem Freedom got the top spot and never looked back.
Before the last event, Crossfit Mayhem Freedom sat on top of the podium with 60 points ahead of 2nd place CrossFit Oslo Navy Blue. That meant that Rich Froning and his teammate would need to finish the event no lower than 9th overall to guarantee the 1st title. Well, they finished 1st.
Last year, Rich Froning hinted at retiring but continued because his wife’s cousin wanted to compete. This year, with the creation of Annie Thorisdottir’s team (CrossFit Reykjavik), Froning saw the opportunity to show the world he still has what it takes, and that he did.
CrossFit Mayhem Freedom finished the 2022 CrossFit Games with 7 event wins. Personally, this is the 10th time Froning wins the CrossFit Games – 4x individual and now 6x as part of a team.
