Since 2011, when Rich Froning first started his streak of four straight CrossFit Games championships, only five men (including Froning) have held the title of Fittest on Earth:

  • Rich Froning: 2011-2014
  • Ben Smith: 2015
  • Mat Fraser: 2016-2020
  • Justin Medeiros: 2021-2022
  • Jeffrey Adler: 2023

This means that many other of the world’s most elite CrossFit athletes have, unfortunately, not been able to win the crown themselves.

In this article, we put together a list of the top three men in the sport who have never won a championship, making our picks based purely on CrossFit Games finishes.
