Sunday Event Results
They couldn’t get their second daily sweep of the Games, but, combined Toomey and Fraser won 19 out of 24 events (12 and 12 for the men and women). It was a storied performance for the two record-setting athletes. With this win, Fraser has surpassed Rich Froning as the winningest CrossFit Games champion with five wins. Toomey has won the most titles of any woman — four.
That said, Samuel Kwant wasn’t discouraged one bit as he headed into the final day. He actually beat Fraser in the first event — Swim ‘N’ Stuff — and came within four-tenths of a second of doing it again in the 11th Games Final event. Overall, Kwant placed second. Justin Medeiros, who really pushed Fraser in days one and two, ended up in third overall. Ohlsen got fourth and Adler placed last.
For the women, Katrín Tanja Davíðsdóttir stayed in the three and two spots for the entirety of the day and earned second place. Haley Adams was edged out of third place by an aggressive Kari Pearce. Brooke Wells got fifth.
Swim ‘N’ Stuff Event Results
Samuel Kwant upsets Mathew Fraser! What a way to start the third and final day of the Games Finals. Though Fraser is still firmly in the lead, this is no doubt a huge morale boost for not just Kwant, but the rest of the athletes. Many consider Fraser’s loss in the CrossFit Total to be due to a weight miscalculation, but he lost this one fair and square. Kwant is now in second place overall and trails Fraser by 435 points. Toomey handily won this event, to improve her overall lead over Katrín Tanja Davíðsdóttir by 335 points. Haley Adams had a nice start to the day, by placing second in this event to move up to third place overall.

Saturday Event Results
After day two of the Games Finals, Mathew Fraser and Tia-Clair Toomey lead their decisions by 435 and 290 points, respectively. For the other competitors, time is of the essence. Though Fraser essentially has the men’s division on lock, the women’s division is a tad tighter. Despite utter domination from the two reigning champs — who won all four events of the day — the other athlete’s efforts shouldn’t be overlooked.
Justin Medeiros, the 21-year-old Games rookie has really shined by refusing to back down to Fraser and pushing the pace. Also, Samuel Kwant made a formidable comeback, by placing second in event nine, Happy Star, to move from fifth place to third overall. For the women, Katrín Tanja Davíðsdóttir has held firmly onto second place. And Kari Pearce had a great second-place showing in Happy Star to move up to third place overall.

A seemingly fatigued Haley Adams ended up in fifth place, and Davíðsdóttir has taken over the runner-up spot. For the men, Noah Ohlsen put up one heck of a fight, staying within just a few reps of Fraser throughout, but Fraser simply “broke him,” as the commentators put it.

2007 Reload Event Breakdown
Dave Castro, the maestro of the CrossFit Games, must be feeling nostalgic. This is the first of two events that harken back to the first-ever CrossFit Games in 2007. The first event of the 2007 Games featured a 1,000-meter row, and then five rounds of 25 pull-ups and seven push jerks (135 pounds for the men, and 95 pounds for the women). Castro tacked on 500 meters to the row, swapped pull-ups for muscle-ups — an extremely taxing move — and upped the weight of the push jerks (now called “shoulder-to-overheads”) by 100 pounds for the men and 50 pounds for the women. What a guy.
- 1,500-meter row
Then five rounds of:
- 10 bar muscle-ups
- 7 shoulder-to-overheads
Women: 145 pounds / Men: 235 pounds
Corn Sack Sprint Event Leaders

Samuel Kwant was behind him by 16 seconds. In the women’s division, Toomey completed her sprint — well, it’s more of a trudge — in 3:05, which was just eight seconds faster than runner-up Katrín Tanja Davíðsdóttir.
Corn Sack Sprint Results — Men

They got that — and then some when Dave Castro surprised them with an extra lap the moment they crossed the finish line. Mathew Fraser still won in the men’s division, making this his fourth Games win of 2020 — and his 23rd Games win overall.
