The six-time Fittest Woman on Earth, Tia-Clair Toomey, officially completed 180 reps in CrossFit Open Workout 23.1, with a tiebreaker of 12:26 (time when she completed 30 cleans). She happens to also be 6 months pregnant.

“Those toe-to-bar sucked,” Toomey said in her YouTube video after completing the workout. She added, “I think I could have gotten six muscle-ups done,” then corrected herself, “seven muscle-ups done.”

In Toomey’s first crack at this workout in 2014, she logged 187 reps, or 7 ring muscle-ups in the first round. At the time, it was her second year doing the CrossFit Open, and the 20-year-old Aussie went on to place 18th in her first CrossFit Games Regional competition. The following year, Toomey took second place to Katrin Davidsdottir in her rookie CrossFit Games appearance in Carson, CA.
