The 2020 Mayhem Classic went down over the weekend, in Cookeville, Tennessee. This is the complete results from the event.
The Mayhem Classic was the first Sanctional event of the year, and as such was highly anticipated. Therefore, when the action kicked off on Friday, fans were glued to CrossFit Mayhem’s YouTube channel, until the awards ceremony on Sunday. Moreover, this became even easier, as the events delivered, providing some exciting moments throughout the weekend.
As the dust settles, and the 2020 Mayhem Classic goes into the history books, we recap the event that was. While the competition was fierce, only two spots could be handed out to the 2020 CrossFit Games. This is who won the weekend’s events:
1st – Chandler Smith
2nd – Luke Schafer
3rd – Jeffrey Addler
1st – Tia-Clair Toomey
2nd – Kristi Eramo O’Connell
3rd – Danielle Brandon
The men’s side of the Mayhem Classic saw a ton of great, back and forth work. Nobody was able to secure a true lead over the weekend, with Smith and Schafer being essentially neck and neck. Nevertheless, it would be Chandler Smith who scored the win. Although he was already qualified for the Games, though the Open, so his invite went to Luke Schafer regardless.

Won the @mayhemclassic, but lost the weekly steps challenge. We’ll call it a wash I guess. Big thanks to the staff and volunteers for hosting an amazing competition and a congrats to @lukeschafer9 for punching his first ticket to the Games! Excited to heal up and get back to work here soon, 7 months. PC: @ctpcam #BHAW #HLNR
On the other hand, things were cut and dry for the women of the Mayhem Classic. Tia-Clair Toomey tore though her contemporaries, as she has begun to be known for doing, scoring six event wins. Despite that, it would be Danielle Brandon who ended up with the invitation to the Games, as both Toomey and O’Connell were already qualified.

W.O.W! @mayhemclassic put on a great show and it was an honor to be apart of it. Not only was I able to do what I love and compete in-front of an incredible crowd along side phenomenal athletes but I had one of the best athlete experiences and I was able to compete in my home gym @thecrossfitmayhem ❤️🇦🇺 I cannot thank the Mayhem team enough for putting on such a spectacular event and thank-you so much to all the volunteers, judges and organizers who made this event possible. 😘 A huge shout out to the crowd that cheered all weekend long and CONGRATULATIONS to everyone that competed and gave it their very best. We definitely have 2 great sanctional representatives going to the games from this event. 🙌🏼👏🏼 📸 @pattyorr_
All in all, most of the athletes who competed at the 2020 Mayhem Classic performed well. Congrats to the winners, as well as those earning their spots in this year’s Games. Following this event, the next of the CrossFit Sanctionals is the Strength in Depth event, on January 24th.
