Tia Toomey-Orr Rounds Out Rogue Invitational Roster
While the Rogue Invitational has been trickling names onto the leaderboard for the last several weeks, just today, we finally learned of the final name on the roster. None other than six time CrossFit Games champion, Tia-Clair Toomey-Orr.
Remind me: After racking up her sixth win at the 2022 CrossFit Games, fans were uncertain if the competitor would be returning for another season. When asked if she’d be back, her answer was vague and there were indicators that she may be taking some time off due to injury.
She was invited to Rogue in 2022, and reported considering the Legends division, as she was battling some back pain, and needed more time to recover, as the elite individual division began earlier and consisted of more tests.
In November of 2022, she was planning on competing in the Down Under Championship, on a team with fellow Aussie Games athlete Ellie Turner, but pulled out due to what we know now was her pregnancy.
On May 9th, Toomey-Orr gave birth to her and partner Shane Orr’s daughter Willow. Since then, Tia has been seen training with her PRVN crew in Nashville, and attending the Games to support her fellow athletes.
The bottom line: Much speculation has been made as to when the champion will return to competition and today our guesses have been verified, the Aussie will head to Dell Diamond in Austin, TX this October. It will be the first time Toomey has competed since the 2022 CrossFit Games.
