Over 113,000 viewers tuned in live to watch the CrossFit Games Open Announcement 23.1 on February 16, which kicked off the 2023 season with a repeat workout of 14.4.

Though many of CrossFit’s newest star athletes were in elementary school when the workout was first introduced, there are plenty of Games veterans still competing now that logged scores back in 2014. One such athlete is CrossFit Games Individual and Team repeat champion, Rich Froning, who filmed his 14.4 video at CrossFit Mayhem in Cookeville, TN.

Watch the video above to see how the Fittest Man on Earth for three years in a row took on this AMRAP Chipper-style workout.

Froning’s final score was 277 reps, which bested the closest competitor by 12.

  • Don’t worry, Ben Smith turned out just fine.
