The reigning Reebok CrossFit Games Champions, Team Mayhem Freedom, won the first team event at the 2019 Reebok CrossFit Games in Madison, Wisconsin. Team Mayhem Freedom earned their invite to this year’s Reebok CrossFit Games by way of the Asia CrossFit Sanctionals™ in April.
Rich Froning is a familiar face on Team Mayhem Freedom. Froning is a four-time Reebok CrossFit Games champion (2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014.) Froning and the rest of CrossFit Mayhem Freedom showed up ready to win, and looked strong, in sync, and like the reigning champs.
