After nearly leading the 2018 Kill Cliff Granite Games from wire to write, individual pro Travis Mayer finished atop the podium by a mere three and a half points over Streat Hoerner with a score of 902.5 to 899. 

Mayer won the men's pro individual crown while Colleen Fotsch won the women's in what was certainly a whirlwind weekend in St. Cloud, Minnesota. On the evening before the first full day of competition, the CrossFit Games announced that the 2019 Granite Games would be an officially sanctioned qualifier, part of a massive restructuring of the Games

Mayer, whom we profiled ahead of the Games, won three events and only finished outside of the top 10 in a single event — the obstacle course on Day 2 of the competition, when the lead briefly eluded him.



On the women's side of things, Fotsch overtook Andrea Swenson, the Day 1 leader, by epitomizing consistency: Fotsch finished in the top 15 in every workout, while Swenson failed to match her. In fact it was Hayley Murillo who took second place, nearly matching Fotsch's consistency but only winning a single event herself.



In the team's pro competitions, Jen, Cassidy, and Jess won first place for the women while Team Simply Pre edged Invictus X in the men's team competition.

Of course, the pros weren't the only competitors, but we'd have to write a novel-sized post about all the other amazing competitors who took part in the Granite Games. To see the complete results in every division, click here.
