Most 19-year old girls spend their time studying, watching and creating Tik Tok videos, Facetime, or shopping. Most do not have to worry about being a role model and the responsibilities that come with that. Haley Adams isn’t your typical 19-year old. On top of doing the things a normal teen does, she also holds the distinction of leading a new generation of women athletes in the sport.

Remind me: Though not the first athlete to make the transition from the CrossFit Games teen division to the individual competition, she has had the most success. After three years competing in the teen divisions culminating with a dominant performance in 2018 as a 17-year old, Adams went on to finish sixth in her debut as an individual Games athlete. She continued her rise amongst the women’s division this past season, finishing fourth at the Games in a gutsy performance not often seen from a person of her age.
