Only Justin Medeiros had won two individual events going into the last day of competition, but still sat third on the leaderboard (with 504 points) behind Saxon Panchik (512) and Travis Mayer (548).

Heading into Sunday with 504 points as well was Josh Gervais, sharing third place with Justin with only two events to go.

No female Pro athlete went into the last day of competition having won more than one event and the top three spots were more spread out than the men; Carrie Beamer led with 556 points, followed by Emily Rolfe with 542 and Andrea Nisler with 516.

Invictus X and RPM Central Beasts had both won three individual events going into the last day of competition, but were outperformed by CrossFit Krypton, who sat on top of the leaderboard with a 28 point lead coming into Sunday.

The penultimate workout of the Granite Games, “3/3/1”, was a true test and only two female and five male athletes finished within the time limit. It looked like this:

3 Rounds

3 on/1 off

  • 30/22 Calorie Bike
  • 20 TTB


  • 60 S2O

It wasn’t a problem at all for American Nick Bloch, who dominated the event and finished in 6:46, almost four minutes before second place.

The last workout established the leaderboards, and it was Emily Rolfe, Travis Mayer and CrossFit Krypton who won this year’s Granite Games.
