Ricky Repeats and Cary Comes From Behind To Take 2024 TYR WZA Elite Indy Division
January 13 |
Good morning and welcome to the Morning Chalk Up. The Indy Elite competition wrapped up under the Miami lights last night. The Elite Teams of Three are ready to take the competition floor for the first time at the 2024 TYR Wodapalooza. We’ve got you covered with everything you need to know.
TYR WODAPALOOZA/DAY 3 LAY OF THE LAND
Friday was (luckily) a complete 360 from Thursday’s weather conditions at the 2024 TYR Wodapalooza competition. Community athletes took the stage for the first time on Friday, and elite individuals closed out their competition. Elite teams start today, along with community members, including individuals, teams, adaptive, masters, and gauntlet athletes.
Emma Cary wins TYR Wodapalooza for the first time after a very solid two days in the Elite Indy division. She recently joined Mayhem as an athlete, and this was her first competition since joining the camp. The final day for the elite individuals was full of other exciting finishes as well. Australian-born elite athlete Grace Walton showed her dominance in the water during Wipe Out, finishing in first place, well ahead of the rest of the field. Danielle Brandon, unsurprisingly, pulled ahead and won the final workout of the elite individual competition with her speedy handstand walking during El Circo.
Ricky Garard returned to the competition floor to win TYR Wodapalooza for the second time in a row. After missing the 2023 NOBULL CrossFit Games due to an injury, Garard has been on an off-season competition tear. Brent Fikowski and Samuel Kwant finished in second and third place, respectively. Twenty-one-year-old Jack Farlow was right outside the podium and had an impressive weekend overall.
One big number: 6 – Despite winning by only 6 points over Gabi Migala, Emma Cary placed higher than the Polish athlete in every event except the first.

One last thing: Elite teams take the field on Saturday and some of those athletes just finished two days of workouts as elite individuals. It’ll be interesting to see how that affects them. Last year, athletes who competed in both complained of immense fatigue at the end of the weekend.
