While every athlete competing in Las Vegas will bring their A-game to the biggest contest of the year, a few have earned the status of potential front runners to take home the trophy based on previous performances. The reigning World Champion of Fitness, Lauren Weeks, is likely to be in the mix at the top of the leaderboard throughout the day, and it will be a challenge to knock the two-time world champion off the podium.

Weeks also won the 2022 HYROX North American Championships alongside Ryan Kent, who is looking to replace Tobias Lautwein as world champion. Lautwein of Germany remained sharp with his victory at the 2022 HYROX European Championships — Mirjam Von Rohr stood atop the women’s podium in that contest — but Lautwein will not be in Las Vegas to a leg injury.

Former World Champion of Fitness Hunter McIntyre will aim to regain his crown in Las Vegas as well. He was victorious at the 2021 HYROX Dallas contest and will almost assuredly bring the heat on May 14.
