Fraser Is Unstoppable

Fraser Is Unstoppable
Guesnier set the tone with an impressive performance in the first heat with 13:17 finish, but the second heat brought the fire.

The second heat was full of CrossFit rockstars like Spencer Hendel and Lucas Parker, but it was Rasmus Wisbech Andersen who took the lead early and absolutely smashed it. Andersen finished in 11:46, nearly a minute ahead of Rob Forte's second place finish.

Andersen's time didn't last when Heat 3 took the floor. With volume monster Jacob Heppner and exceptional exercisers Noah Ohlsen, Cole Sager, Sam Kwant, Sam Dancer, and Garrett Fisher pushing each other in the heat, Andersen's 11:46 didn't have a chance. But the new time to beat was set by rookie Samuel Kwant even with a no rep on his final rep at 11:37.

Heat 4 featured the best of the best through six events so far, and Mat Fraser was absolutely unwilling to let got of his incredible lead. Even with competition from Bridges, Panchik, Alex Anderson, Vellner, Fikowski, Smith, Vigneault, BKG, and Mayer, Fraser just refused to lose.

Although he didn't take first overall (Sam Kwant's 11:37 stuck around), Fraser's 2nd place finish in Double DT was enough to expand his lead over second place to 144 points. Second place is now occupied by Ben Smith, but the lead Fraser has will be nearly impossible to overcome.

Assuming there are 8 more full point events, Smith would have to beat Fraser by an average differential of just over 18 points, which means he'd have to place first or second in every event to Fraser's 5th or 6th.
