22.1 athlete matchups
The live matchup of CrossFit Open workout 22.1 will feature top CrossFit Games athletes Bethany Shadburne, Danielle Brandon, Noah Ohlsen, and Patrick Vellner.
Shadburne has qualified for the CrossFit Games five times and has a personal best finish of 8th in 2019. She won the West Coast Classic in 2021 and looked like a fierce podium contender for the 2021 CrossFit Games before being forced to withdraw at the start of the competition.
Brandon made waves during the 2021 CrossFit Games having to compete semi-isolated from all other athletes for safety reasons. She is a three-time CrossFit Games athlete with mind blowing gymnastics skills.
Ohlsen is a long-time fan favourite and is the 2019 Second Fittest Man on Earth. Throughout his CrossFit Games career, he’s only finished outside the top 10 once. This will be 12th CrossFit Open season.
Vellner comes in strong after repeating as the Second Fittest Man on Earth in 2021. He is a six-time CrossFit Games competitor with four podium finishes under his belt.
