Haley Adams Is the Next BIG THING in CrossFit

The 19 year-old is the youngest female competitor in this year's field.

Haley Adams is the youngest competitor in this year’s CrossFit Games field, but even at 19 years old, she’s a seasoned competitor. That experience and drive was enough to land her at 3rd overall after Stage 1 of this year’s CrossFit Games.

She built her experience in the Games’ Teen Division, and her transition to Open Individual competition in 2019 went extraordinarily well: She surprised a lot in the community by finishing in sixth place overall at the 2019 Reebok CrossFit Games. This year, Adams is in familiar position as one of the top 10 athletes.

Even better for her, a Top 5 finish out of Stage 1 ensures her spot in the CrossFit Games Finals, which will take place between October 22nd and 25th at the CrossFit Ranch in Aromas, California. She’s fighting to become the first American woman on the CrossFit Games podium since 2014. And she’s still just a teenager!
