September 25, 2017

Sports Illustrated has put out their annual list of the "Fittest 50 In Sports", and some of CrossFit's elite have found themselves ranked among a number of the world's most famous and accomplished athletes.

CrossFit Games Champion Mat Fraser was the only male Crossfitter to make SI's list this year with a very impressive 4th place ranking. Mat's ranking on the list this year put him ahead of some big names in sports like Rob Gronkowski, Cam Newton, Conor McGregor, John Cena, and Russell Westbrook.

This year's top 2 women at the CrossFit Games were the only Crossfitters to make the lady's list. Ranked in the 23rd spot was second place finisher Kara Webb, and in the 5th spot was CrossFit Games winner and Olympian Tia Clair Toomey.

These amazing athletes shared this year's list with the likes of tennis great Serena Williams, Olympian skier Lindsey Vonn, MMA superstar Holly Holm, and so many other deserving and inspiring ladies.
