The four-time reigning and defending “Fittest Man on Earth” Mathew Fraser shouldn’t be answering critics, not when he has strung together a stretch of dominance that hasn’t exposed many holes in his game and no clear-cut challenger in the sport.

Chief among those critics was the man who oversees the test to find the “Fittest”, Dave Castro.
