CrossFit Games: Week 3 Results

The CrossFit Games are back! After a long break, the CrossFit Games returned with its third week of competition. With only two weeks left in the season, it’s time to see which athletes have what it takes to take home the title. And while there are still some surprises, here are six interesting facts about this year’s leaderboard winners.

1. Tom Platz Wins His Second Title In A Row!

Tom Platz was crowned the champion of the CrossFit Games again, winning his second championship in a row. The 32-year old athlete from California took first place last year after taking down competitors like Ryan Kennelly, Mike Tuchscherer, and Justin Bonomo. Tom won’t be stopping anytime soon; he’ll be competing at the 2016 World Championships later this month.

2. Scott Jurek Is The New Champion Of The Open Division!

Scott Jurek became the new champion of the open division, defeating fellow competitor Josh Waitzkin in a close battle. Jurek had been undefeated up until this point, but lost to Scott in their first match-up. They were then matched against each other again during week three, where they both came out victorious once again.

3. There Is Finally A Three-Peat!

After a close battle, Amanda Ries won her third CrossFit Games title, becoming the first person to ever win three titles. She defeated runner-up Tia-Clair Toomey in a very close match, winning by only two reps. Amanda has been fighting injuries during this year’s competition, and reportedly tore her bicep muscle during the Snatch Ladder.

4. Four Men Qualify For The Games During Week 3!

After a grueling week 3, four men have qualified for the games: Tom Piceu, Blaine Sumner, Tanner Hall, and Mathew Fraser. This is up from the previous year, where only three men won the right to compete. Ultimately, it will be up to the fans to decide which athlete they want to win.

2. Mathew Firth Takes Home Second Place For The Week!

Mathew Firth took home second place with a time of 21:59.3 in the final workout of the week, beating out Rich Snyder by nearly a full minute. The 28-year-old from Australia has fought incredibly this year, pushing himself to new limits.

3. Rich Snyder Takes Home Third Place With A Time Of 22:01!

Rich Snyder tied Mathew Firth with a time of 21:59.3 in the final workout of the week, but sadly takes home third place. Snyder has been on a roll this year, and it’s a shame he won’t be taking home second place. The 30-year-old athlete is one to keep an eye on though; he’s a fierce competitor!

4. Noah Ohlsen Comes In Fourth Place With A Time Of 25:04!

Noah Ohlsen came in 4th place with a time of 25:04 in the final workout of the week. The 19-year-old has shown great promise this year, and he’s only going to get better as he continues to compete. With more experience under his belt, he’s sure to climb that leaderboard.

5. Karsten Kay Takes Home Fifth Place!

Karsten Kay took home fifth place with a time of 25:12.3 in the final workout of the week. The 31-year-old has quietly been pushing himself this year. He wasn’t even originally meant to be here, but a last minute pull-up conversion rate gave him a chance to compete.

6. Russell Greene Takes Home Sixth Place!

Russell Greene has taken home sixth place in the third week of the CrossFit Games. The 31-year-old has taken home a respectable time of 26:04.3 in the final workout of the week. This was his first year competing, and he’s done fairly well for himself.
