If you watched any of the 2023 CrossFit Oceania Semifinals, I don’t have to tell you twice which Douglas had the best moment in front of the crowd. 

No, it wasn’t Jake, who massacred Semifinals Linda and then later went on to snatch 310 lbs. It was his 5-year-old daughter Frankie who joined Jake for his post-event interview with Kayla Banfield, delighting in seeing herself on the big screen and saying how proud she was of her dad.

Father of two, Jake Douglas, has had a long road getting here, but come August, he will compete in his first CrossFit Games, no doubt ready to make daughter Frankie, two-year-old son Johnny, and partner Ellen proud.
