Rich Froning Wins 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games

Three was definitely the lucky number for Rich Froning on this last day of the 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games. Going into the final day with a narrow lead over rival Jason Khalipa, Froning surged ahead with a first place finish in the Sprint Chipper event, and never looked back.

From there Froning went on to dominate the field in the days final two events as well - The Cinco 1 & 2, where you really have to be some kind of machine to get to the finish line. These two punishing events incorporated a barrage of deadlifts, weighted pistols, handstand walks, muscle-ups, handstand push-ups, and an overhead barbell lunge for a body crushing 90-feet. While some in the field struggled to complete the event in the alloted time, Froning made it seem effortless. 

Clearly it was Froning's day. Three first place finishes for a CrossFit Games 3-peat. An impressive feat, even for the reigning fittest man on earth. When asked at the post games press conference what's next, Froning promised more of the same, and even mulled the idea of participating on a team next year. And with the way he's going, he might be able to win that on his own.
