Tia Clair Toomey moving to the US?
There were rumours circulating at The CrossFit Games that Australian 2x CrossFit Games champion Tia-Clair Toomey may be moving to Cookeville to train with Rich Froning and the large roster of incredible athletes that are stationed and compete there for the 2019 season. This would place her in the Central Regional, bad news if you are a female individual in that part of the world!
This was further discussed in the CrossFit Update Show. Note how Tia Clair also appears in the graphic as registered to compete in the 2019 CrossFit Central Regional.
Tia Clair and Shane Orr have put their CrossFit affiliate, CrossFit Gladstone, up for sale.
This would indicate that there is serious truth behind the intended move. They also state that they have invested over $100,000 into the gym.
If Toomey and Shane do make the move, then there will be a total of 9 Fittest on Earth Titles in one city (Froning with 4, Fraser with 3 and Toomey with 2).
