CrossFit Mayhem Freedom recently announced their two final teams rosters for the upcoming 2018 CrossFit Games season. Over the last few months, athletes have wondered who would fill the two respective teams (Freedom & Independence) rosters coming out of CrossFit Mayhem Freedom, especially since team sizes were changed from six to four athletes.
Yesterday, CrossFit Mayhem Freedom shared a photo including all of the members on this year’s Mayhem Freedom teams. The two team’s rosters can be seen below.
Special thanks to the Morning Chalk Up, which reported on this story early this morning. They’re the minds behind one of our favorite fitness and motivational videos of the last few years; check it out here.

For context, these two CrossFit Mayhem Freedom teams came of interest in early November 2017, as CrossFit Mayhem Freedom first announced that Tasia Percevecz would be joining them; former team member Kristin Reffett ended up moving away from Cookeville, Tennessee.
Soon after this announcement, Dave Castro dropped the news at the 2017 CrossFit Invitational that some formats would be changing for the 2018 CrossFit Games season, which included the sizes of teams to be dropped from six members to four.
Then, fast forward to 24-hours later when CrossFit Mayhem Freedom shared the Instagram video below that highlighted they’d be forming two teams titled: CrossFit Mayhem Freedom and CrossFit Mayhem Independence. In the video’s description they poked fun at who would be equipping both teams.
All of the members on CrossFit Mayhem Freedom’s two teams have competitive CrossFit experience, so it’s going to be interesting to see how they both perform alongside one another. Also, the teams are split pretty evenly with members from the 2017 CrossFit Mayhem Freedom team, which is definitely a good thing because they’ll most likely have similar mindsets when it comes to working, staying motivating, and building as a team.
It’s no secret that last year Wasatch CrossFit upset Froning’s Mayhem Freedom, which made the 2017 Reebok CrossFit Games the first year since 2010 that Froning didn’t find himself in a first place finish (individual or team). Two elite teams with a drive towards redemption? This is going to be an exciting CrossFit team season.
