Familiar Names Sit Atop the CrossFit Team Series Leaderboard

The annual CrossFit Team Series has come to a conclusion with big names sitting atop the leaderboard in the men’s, women’s, and mixed pairs divisions. This online competition takes place every year and offers CrossFit athletes the chance to create their own teams consisting of two members, which can be male, female, or mixed.

This year, the event took a slightly different format, and allowed athletes much more variety when creating their teams. To perhaps no one’s surprise, all of the top pairs from each team category consisted of CrossFit Games veterans with histories of success. First place teams walked away with $10,000 USD, second were awarded with $5,000, and third $3,000.
