Tia Wins First Event, Only 4 Out of 134 Female Athletes Finish

Only four female athletes were able to finish the first Event at The 2019 CrossFit Games.

Tia-Clair Toomey was in a class of her own, establishing an early lead that she extended as the workout progressed.

Kari Pearce finished in second, ahead of Jaime Green and Haley Adams, who both sprinted to the line together in a frantic dash for third place. 

These were the only four athletes standing across the line in the finish zone as the time cap sounded across the blazing and hot competition field. Katrin Davidsdottir finished in 21st and Sara Sigmundsdottir in 40th.

Talking confidently but humbly about the first Event, Tia claimed that she was:

“Really happy with that performance but we don’t know what’s coming…”
