Noah Ohlsen dominated once again at Wodapalooza on his way to winning the Men’s Elite division. The victory backs up his title from 2015 and 2016’s events.
This year, Ohlsen looked strong throughout as he accumulated three 1st place event wins, two more 2nd place finishes and only one finish outside the top 10. Ohlsen topped the leaderboard after a 2nd and 1st place finish on Friday and he never looked back as he finished 67 points ahead of Alex Anderson.
Anderson stayed near the top of the leaderboard but was unable to put up enough consistent performances to hang with Ohlsen. Four finishes outside the top 10 offset the rest of the events where he finished inside the top 3 every other time.
Taking 3rd place was CrossFit Games veteran Samuel Kwant. Kwant stayed out of trouble the whole weekend without any great performances, but he more importantly avoided mistakes. Kwant routinely finished in the top 4 (four times) throughout the weekend and passed Conor Nugent on the final event to make the podium.
Huge huge thanks to @guidotrinidad and the whole entire @thewodapalooza crew for another amazing year. It never disappoints. The staff, judges, volunteers, fans, sponsors and everyone in between were spectacular as usual. See ya next year Miami! #invictus #wodapalooza #redline #xwerks #rpmfitness #bearkomplex #killcliff #nike #crossfit
The rest of the field was stacked with Games athletes including Garret Fisher, Travis Mayer, Jacob Anderson, Logan Collins, Ben Stoneberg, Christian Lucero, Sean Sweeney, Jordan Troyan, Cole Sager, Zak Carchedi and Will Moorad.
