The Team Series marks the end of the 2018 season.
The Team Series marks the end of the 2018 season.

CrossFit has officially crowned the winners of the fifth annual CrossFit Team Series. This year’s competition featured loads of synchro work, burpees, heavy barbells and more.

In the second year of the two-person team format, we saw athletes pair up with their friends, neighbors, significant others and box frenemies for the partner workouts. After the dust settled on the Leaderboard, here are the teams that came out on top.

Women

The team made up of 2016 Games athlete Meg Reardon and perennial East Regional athlete Kristine Best called themselves Wags and Weights. The duo takes the title and the US$10,000 prize in the women’s division.

Even with a minor penalty for an out-of-sync pull-up in Event 3, the team wins with a 23-point gap over the second-place team, which consisted of Harriet Roberts and Jessica Coughlan. Reardon and Best will each be awarded US$5,000.

The 2018 Season is Over 

The 2018 CrossFit Games season has officially come to a close. With the announcement of the Team Series winners, CrossFit looks ahead to the 2019 season, which began with the first CrossFit-sanctioned event, The Dubai CrossFit Championship, which began its qualification process on Oct. 3.

The 2019 Open will take place in February, the Games in August, and the 2020 Open in the fall of 2019. Click here for a list of CrossFit-sanctioned events, which will replace Regionals as qualifying events to the CrossFit Games. CrossFit will continue to update the list with newly sanctioned events.
