In an incredible show of strength Guilherme Malheiros secured his third CrossFit Games event win taking the top spot during Individual Event 12, a 1-Rep-Max Snatch.
With flawless technique, Malheiros was the only athlete in the men’s field to lift 305 lb.
After nine rounds of increasingly heavier lifts, the 1-rep-max snatch came down to Royce Dunne and Guilherme Malheiros. Dunne went first and attempted a weight three pounds over his max, missing his three attempts.
The pressure was on for Malheiros, who amped the crowd before taking to the lifting platform. His winning snatch was flawless, and the Brazilian athlete held on to the bar overhead in celebration, ensuring everyone saw his incredible lift.
