The 2021 CrossFit Games were another dominant display by the team from CrossFit Mayhem Freedom, as they won their record fifth Affiliate Cup title in a competition weekend that more closely resembled a victory parade than a competition. 

Mayhem has now won five of the last six years, under three different season formats, and with more than a dozen different athletes under their banner. 

How is anyone going to compete with them?
