After seven consecutive CrossFit Games appearances, 25-year-old Ben Smith is the champion.
Smith started CrossFit at age 16 and competed in his first CrossFit Games in 2009 at 19. It wasn’t until the 2011 Reebok CrossFit Games that Smith could legally hoist a beer, which he might have done to celebrate his third-place finish. He was also third in 2013.
On the women’s side, the victory went to Katrin Tanja Davidsdottir, the second Icelandic woman to take first, after Annie Thorisdottir’s back-to-back wins in 2011 and 2012. This is Davidsdottir’s third Games appearance, and she shares the podium with two rookies: Tia-Clair Toomey and Sara Sigmundsdottir.
