Previous winners

Last year, reigning Fittest Woman on Earth Tia-Clair Toomey took the top spot at the Mid Atlantic CrossFit Challenge because of travel restrictions that prevented her from competing in her home region of Australia.

She was followed by Haley Adams, Brooke Wells, Amanda Barnhart, and Jessice Griffith.

On the men’s side, Jayson Hopper shocked the crowd by winning the event without previous CrossFit Games experience.

He was followed by Scott Panchik, Justin Medeiros, Travis Mayer, and Zach Watts.
