Reebok CrossFit Games Individual Day 2 Recap: Mat Fraser and Tia-Clair Toomey Lead

We’re officially halfway through the 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games for the individual athletes, and we’ve definitely seen our fair share of surprises. After starting the Games with the four-event “hardest day one ever in Reebok CrossFit Games history,” there have been plenty of major turning points worth calling attention to.

Today, individual athletes kicked off the day with Event 5, “The Battleground”, which included dragging a Rescue Randy doll, a lot of rope climbs, and of course the infamous obstacle course. Soon after, Dave Castro announced Event 6, the Clean & Jerk Speed Ladder composed of three rounds of progressively loaded cleans. To conclude day two, individual athletes finished with Fibonacci (Event 7), a 5-8-13 rep themed triplet.

After seven individual events, the 2017 Reebok CrossFit Games Champions are both holding the leader’s white jersey and are proving that their spot is not going to be easily taken. Fraser and Toomey both put on commanding performances today, but can they hold them tomorrow?

Tomorrow entails three events and kicks off bright and early in the morning with a swim, paddle, and run event. The second event of the day “Chaos” has yet to be announced, but if it’s anything like the first day’s premonitions, then we’re in for a big surprise.
