Five-time Fittest Woman on Earth Tia-Clair Toomey has unofficially won CrossFit Open workout 22.2 with an astonishing time of 7:05.
Her time placed her right on top of the women’s leaderboard for the workout and is so good it’s even 15 seconds faster than Uldis Upenieks’ and Noah Ohlsen’s, both of whom posted the best time on the men’s global leaderboard at 7:20.
Toomey was closely followed by teen athlete Mallory O’Brien, who did not only post an impressive score of 7:09 for Open workout 22.2 but also outright won 22.1. The 18-year-old currently sits on top of the women’s global leaderboard.

Watch Tia-Clair Toomey Demolish CrossFit Open Workout 22.2
Toomey’s time impressive in itself, but even more so considering the Australian athlete didn’t specifically train CrossFit in the three months leading up to the Open and was hoping to cut the weight she put up for bobsleigh.
The 28-year-old had been focused on helping the Australian bobsleigh team qualify for the 2022 Winter Olympics. She had therefore “put on an excessive amount of weight” and would have to “find my natural bodyweight again, as well as building my fitness” which would “be another challenge in itself,” she explained in a YouTube video posted at the end of January.
Back then, Toomey’s husband Shane Orr, explained that Tia has an overall great foundation of fitness and it should be no problem for her to make it the top 10% during the Open to qualify for the Quarterfinals.
She is now winning workouts overall.
