FRASER: 5th at Regionals to 2nd at Games in 1 YearSep 1, 2014
Mat Fraser once thought he was destined to become an Olympian lifter, and grade-level accolades suggested that just might happen. However, a streak of injuries and a bit of bad luck at the Olympic Training Center cut his career short. It wasn't until stumbling into a local box at his university that he started to tap into his true potential as an Elite Fitness competitor and all-around athlete. From local to national competition to eventually the world stage, Fraser found himself on the podium. In 2014 and 2015, he cemented himself as the second fittest man in the world, and in 2016 he became THE fittest man in the world.
