The 2024 TYR Wodapalooza qualifier leaderboard has just officially been finalized and we now know who will be joining in on he action this January.

Within the 20 elite men and 20 elite women who qualified, we have some big names, along with many new faces.

Here’s a quick look at the official qualifier results:

Women’s Leaderboard

  1. Grace Walton
  2. Lexi Neely
  3. Rebecca Fuselier
  4. Elena Carratala Sanahuja
  5. Stacy Lerum
  6. Elizabeth Wishart
  7. Ro Scott
  8. Emily Rethwill
  9. Freya Moosbrugger
  10. Christee Hollard
  11. Sara Alicia Fernandez Costas
  12. Briony Challis
  13. Julia Hannaford
  14. Keara Napoli
  15. Jessica Androsik
  16. Margaux Masset
  17. Nicollette Torreggiani
  18. Becca Merritt
  19. Ashley Cope
  20. Allison Weiss

Right away we can see that the women’s side of competition is going to be exciting to watch, as we have multiple athletes who competed at the 2022 CrossFit Games (Rebecca Fuselier, Freya Moosbrugger, Elena Carratala Sanahuja).

All three of them have likely been training with a chip on their shoulders, upset that they missed out on the 2023 Games.

Along with them, the winner of this qualifier Grace Walton will no doubt also be looking to prove herself after missing out on qualifying for this year’s Games by just 35 points at the Oceania Semifinal.

Men’s Leaderboard

  1. Austin Hatfield
  2. Juan Ignacio Sforzini
  3. Antonios Makaronas
  4. Harry Lightfoot
  5. Francis Pelletier
  6. Kevin Jurs
  7. Jack Rozema
  8. CJ Gerald
  9. Travon Benton
  10. John Wood
  11. Alexandre Caron
  12. Drake Lewis
  13. Connor Voltz
  14. Tanner Balazs
  15. William Bennett
  16. Nikita Yundov
  17. Guilherme Domingues
  18. Lucas Heuze
  19. Evan Rogers
  20. Joshua Hong

As we can see from this list, this group doesn’t have many big names besides four-time individual Games athlete Alexandre Caron.

This however, gives an opportunity to some lesser-known athletes who will be eager to make a name for themselves in the sport.

Can this group’s leader, Austin Hatfield prove on-site that he is just as capable in live-competition as he is online? 

With a 58 point lead over second place in the qualifier, he seems to definitely be in the best shape at the moment, but will he still be next year?

Final Thoughts

Since the athletes from the 2023 Games who will compete in Miami have not yet been announced, we don’t yet have a full picture of the field of athletes that will be competing, but until then there is a question to be asked.

Can any of these athletes who earned their invitation through the qualifier crack the top five when live competition comes around? Have these athletes done enough in training to beat the very best of the sport?

We’ll just have to find out in January.
