Why

This will be an epic battle on a global scale. The athletes must play and adapt to each other’s strengths and weaknesses, fighting it out in the name of national pride. What’s not to love?

Teams:

Europe

The rightly feared Icelandic blood and strength will bolster the European team, which is led by the wealth of knowledge and British grit of Sam Briggs – A former winner of the Crossfit Games in 2013.

  • Björgvin Karl Guðmundsson
  • Jonne Koski
  • Sara Sigmundsdottir
  • Katrin Davidsdsdottir (current world champion)

USA

After losing the current world champion to injury, the USA could have felt a setback to their ambitions. However, 4 time world champ Rich Froning has stepped in to take his place, and they are a well disciplined and highly motivated team with experience on their side.

  • Dan Bailey
  • Rich Froning
  • Margaux Alvarez
  • Chyna Cho

PACIFIC

Three Aussies and one lone Kiwi, 3 out of 4 are rookies, but don’t write them off as these underdogs are fighters. Toomey is a dark horse, placing 2nd at the Crossfit Games earlier this year, and Webb’s experience could be a strong guiding light for the team. Watch out for the Pacific team, if there’s an upset, it could come from them.

  • Ben Garard
  • Kevin Manuel
  • Tia-Clair Toomey
  • Kara Webb

CANADA

Stoic and hardy, the Canadians are a solid team that packs a serious punch. The work rate of Abbott and Parker is phenomenal. Leblanc-Bazinet is last year’s fittest woman on earth, and together they represent a powerful and crushing force from the cold north.

  • Lucas Parker
  • Alex Vigneault
  • Camille Leblanc-Bazinet
  • Emily Abbott

About The Author

Editor-In-Chief at BOXROX. I come from a background of rugby and weightlifting. Growing up in the English Lake District, I spent a great deal of time swimming in its stunning lakes and rivers. In 2015 my brothers and I became the first people to swim the 145km length of the River Eden, from source to mouth, in 9 days. We also swam the Corryvreckan whirlpool, the third largest in the world, and Crossfit is a huge part of my training for these events.
