Mat Fraser and Tia-Clair Toomey have taken their training to social media again, to show their competitors what it takes to win a title with over 1000 box jumps, each. It’s riveting to watch the stamina and dedication that goes into performing what looks like such a simple task, more than 1000 times.
In last month’s Stage 1 of CrossFit Games 2020, Mat Fraser from the United States crushed his fellow Americans by over one hundred points. His total score to win Stage 1 of the competition came in at 656, while second place Noah Olsen scored 488 and third-place Justin Medeiros at 480.
Fourth and fifth place holders were American Samuel Kwant with 449 points, and Canadian Jeffrey Adler with 420 points. It is these five competitors that Fraser will go up against in Stage 2 this month while competing for the Fittest Male on Earth title for 2020.
Fraser posted his accomplishment to Instagram this week, saying,
“I wasn’t expecting company. Just doing my workout. I don’t know if you heard me counting. I did over 1000.”
Tia-Clair Toomey posted on the same day:
“Mat Fraser posted about box jumps so I posted about box jumps. Same. Same but different. I also did over 1000 reps.”
Tia-Clair Toomey is at the top of the leaderboard for Stage 1 of the CrossFit Games 2020. From Australia, but training in the United States, she took home 615 points in last month’s Stage 1 competition. She will compete against Brooke Wells from the United States with 580 points in second place.
Also up for Stage 2 for the women’s category is Haley Adams from the United States with 497, Iceland’s Katrin Tanja Davidsdottir with 490 points, and Kari Pearce from the United States with 451 points.
Do we think Mat Fraser and Tia-Clair Toomey will win the titles at Stage 2 of the CrossFit Games this month? When you see athletes pushing themselves this hard, it’s impossible not to be in awe. Yes, we think they will, and we are not alone.
One commenter on Tia-Clair’s Instagram noted,
“You two pushing each other will make almost impossible to have other champions.. Impressive!! All the respect to your grind.”
Mathew Fraser and Tia-Clair Toomey are so far unbeatable this year, with multiple titles behind them to back up their game. We think that trend can continue.
