For the first time in the 2022 CrossFit Games, Tia-Clair Toomey will be wearing the white leader jersey. She overtook Mal O’Brien after individual event 5 by mere 2 points.
Before the Games began, it was safe to bet that Tia-Clair Toomey was going to continue her path to become the biggest champion of CrossFit history in both male and female divisions. However, after the first 4 events, Toomey was still looking up and seeing other athletes on the leaderboard. That is now bound to change.
During individual event 5, Tia-Clair Toomey showcased her impressive endurance and strength and finished the event in 3rd, just behind Gabriela Migala and Laura Horvath. That gave Toomey 94 and all she needed to wait was for Mal O’Brien and Emma Lawson to stay behind as much as possible.
O’Brien finished 9th and Lawson 11th, giving a small edge for Toomey to become the leader again. Results, however, are still unofficial.
