The Reebok CrossFit Games ended on Sunday, crowning 25-year-old Ben Smith and 22-year-old Katrin Tanja Davidsdottir as the fittest people on the planet. This was Smith’s seventh year competing at the games, and most fans didn’t think he had it in him. Boy did he prove them wrong with a 347-pound Clean and Jerk, and by just nearly beating out powerhouse competitor Mathew Fraser.
This was Davidsdottir’s third time at the Games — and she conquered rookies Tia-Clair Toomey and Sara Sigmundsdottir to win first place. Davidsdottir only won one event out of the all competitions, but her consecutive high placing throughout the Games helped her pull off a victory. Here are ten inspiring photos of athletic achievement at this year’s Games:
