Medeiros Gets His Leader Jersey, Age Group and Adaptive Divisions Crown Their Fittest on Day Four at the 2022 CrossFit Games

Justin Medeiros takes the overall lead; Guilherme Malheiros cracks the top 20.

Day Four of the 2022 CrossFit Games closed in epic fashion. The fittest athletes in the world got a heavier taste of strongman after kicking off the day in the pool. Defending champions Tia-Clair Toomey and Justin Medeiros had the overall leads in their respective divisions to start the day, and they held on to those leads with only three events to go on Sunday, Aug. 7, 2022.

Lucy Campbell and Roman Khrennikov tacked on 100 points to their totals after swimming to ski ergs in the morning. Khrennikov is effectively a lock to make the podium. Event Nine saw Guilherme Malheiros exit the cacoon he was in for the first half of the competition and blossom into the star the fans fell for at the 2021 Games. He took the Event Nine win with Ellie Turner and tied for first in Event 10 with Nick Mathew.

The final event of the evening was as though the age of gladiators returned, and the lions were heavy sandbags. Dani Speegle trounced the field, lifting a 250-pound bag to her shoulder for the gold. A clash between Medeiros and Ricky Garard in the latter rounds of the event saw the defending champ distance his lead by six more points heading into the final day.

Individual Event Eight Results — Rinse ‘N’ Repeat

The opening event on Day Four saw the swimmers show off their speed in the pool. Jonne Koski, Lucy Campbell, Amanda Barnhart, and Tia-Clair Toomey leveraged their experience in the water. However, only Campbell converted that advantage into an event win. Barnhart caught a close runner-up finish. Laura Horvath went full beast mode on the ski erg and snuck past Toomey by two calories to take third. 

While Koski did his best imitation of Horvath on the ski erg, Dallin Pepper and Khrennikov established and maintained cycle rates on the ski erg that could have created a whirlpool. Koski took third in the event, missing the win by six calories to Khrennikov.

Individual Event Nine Results — Hat Trick

The Hat Trick was aptly named, as athletes performed wall balls and dumbbell snatches for three rounds. The cumulative time determined standings in the event, meaning that proficiency was the determining factor. O’Brien wore the leader jersey through the first two days of competition and aimed to get it back from Toomey. Toomey’s costly pair of no-reps in the wall ball allowed O’Brien to shave three points off Toomey’s lead.

Ellie Turner was in the bottom half of the overall leaderboard but left the entire field in her dust. She claimed the first Games event win of her career. Malheiros showed why he is one of the best in the world when combining strength and speed into one event. He ditched the rest of the Men’s division to claim first place by over 15 seconds.

Individual Event 10 Results — Sandbag Ladder

The Sandbag Ladder was a dramatic display of grit, strength, and determination. Titan Games champion Dani Speegle made easy work of the Women’s division, clearing every sandbag in her path with plenty left in the tank. Jaqueline Dahlstrøm overperformed by cleaning more than her body weight to take second place.

Four men made it to the round of 350 pounds — except that wasn’t part of the programming. The event was initially scheduled to cap at 340 pounds, but Malheiros, Hopper, Fikowski, and Mathew weren’t interested in going home yet. Luckily, the production staff had a 350-pound bag to roll out, but it proved too difficult to lift. Malheiros and Mathew crossed the finish line at the exact same time — down to the hundredth of a second — to share first place in the event.
