INSANE Speed and Power Testing on DAY 2 at 2022 Crossfit Games

The second day of competition at the state track meet in Madison was just as exciting, if not more so than the first! There were some amazing performances by the TOP athletes.
Check out who made waves during this DAY below:

The shuttle runs of progressive distance and max reps on the jerk with different strict time limits made for an interesting EVENT TWO at this year’s CrossFit Games. The heavy rain from Wednesday forced organizers to push it onto day 2, but that only added more spice!

Tia-Clair Toomey, the five-time reigning Fittest Woman on Earth®, pulled off an impressive feat as she went from eighth place overall on day one to third by end of the second.

In the Individual Men’s portion, Ricky Garard maintained his first-place lead ahead of defending Fittest Man on Earth® Justin Medeiros. Jeffrey Adler threw himself into the mix near the top after scoring 100 points in the jerk portion.

Individual Event 2 “Shuttle to Overhead”

The event included 400 meters, 600m and 800 m sprints; then AMRAP shoulders to overhead presses at 300 pounds for men or 200lbs if female in two-minute, three-minute and four-minute blocks. There were 100 points available for the total run time and 100 for the AMRAP of max reps.

With speed and endurance in mind, Haley Adams claimed 100 points for the fastest cumulative time across all three shuttle runs. Toomey also righted her ship with 18 reps from the jerk portion after performing well there too which brought her back up to third overall rankings!

In the Individual Men’s portion of this year's competition, Ricky Garard maintained his first-place lead ahead of defending Fittest Man on Earth® Justin Medeiros.
