For the second year in a row, Tia-Clair Toomey is the Fittest Woman on Earth. Toomey battled early with CrossFit Games rookie Laura Horvath, but a strong Saturday would separate Toomey from the rest of the pack.

Throughout 14 events Toomey only won two events, the CrossFit Total and Madison Triplus. Consistency, however, is what would carry Toomey to another CrossFit Games victory. Toomey had only one finish outside the top 10, a 14th place finish on the Marathon Row.

In 2nd place was Horvath. Horvath would lead after Day 1 and follow up with an event victory on Saturday morning on The Battleground. She would struggle on two events, 21st on the Clean & Jerk Speed Ladder and 17th on Fibonacci. Every other finish was inside the top 10. Horvath would also run away with Two-Stroke Pull on Sunday, her second event win of the week. And to top things off, she would win the final event.

Here is how Toomey finished each event compared to 2nd place finisher, Horvath.
