ANALYSIS: Which Number is Really Greater? Toomey’s 33 or Fraser’s 29?

September 29, 2021 by

This article is a fallout of the study that was done between Mat Fraser and Tia-Clair Toomey for South China Morning Post now that they have each competed at seven CrossFit Games, have each won five in a row, and prior to that each began their careers with back-to-back second place finishes. 

Through seven years of competition Toomey has 33 career event wins to Fraser’s 29; and this alone seems to have been enough for CrossFit to declare Toomey as the most dominant CrossFit athlete of all time (on multiple occasions). 

This of course got us thinking, what are the nature of those 33 and 29 event wins? And is there perhaps more to the story than a simple 33 is greater than 29 comparison?
