Breaking News: Mat Fraser Won Event One At Dubai CrossFit Championship

Mat Fraser Leads On The Scorecards After Event 1 With The Score Of 100!

Three-time reigning CrossFit Games champion Mat Fraser opened strong in the first round at Dubai CrossFit Championship. The American competitor blew up the competition, earning the score of 100 in the event one, leaving his rivals far behind!

Here is how Dubai CrossFit Championship Event 1 looked like:

For Time (15 Minute Time Cap)

21 – 15 – 9

Dual KB Snatch 24 kg / 16 kg

Dual KB Front Squat 24 kg / 16 kg

350m swim

As you can see the upper limit for this brutal workout is 15 minutes. Few competitors could not even complete the first event. Don’t forget dual kettlebell front squat and snatch are technically very difficult exercises!

Other CrossFit athletes, who put in outstanding performances, are Alex Kotoulas, Matt McLeod, and BK Karl Gudmundsson, who won the Dubai Fitness Championship last year.

McLeod earned the second place in the first round (95 points, 10:25). Yet, CrossFit Mayhem competitor earned the score of outstanding 100 points and completed the circuit in 09:54. As well as you can see, the difference between 1st and 2nd place is unbelievable 31 seconds. Mat Fraser probably had some sort of a rocket fuel in his arms and legs!

Briefly, event 2 looks like this.
