Gladstone girl Tia-Clair Toomey has defended her title as the fittest woman on earth at the 2018 CrossFit Games in Wisconsin.
It’s a back-to-back win for the 25-year-old athlete, who took out the title last year, following two 2ndplaces in 2015 and 2016. This year, Toomey took home $405,000 in prize money.
The five-day competition tests strength, speed and endurance over 14 different events. Of these, Toomey won 2 events and earned 13 top 10 placings, taking the lead on day 2 after deadlifting 188kg.
Congratulations Tia-Clair! We hope you’re celebrating the win with a major carb-overload (and if you’re not, we’ll happily do it for you).
