Mathew Fraser earned the title of Fittest Man on Earth at the 2016 Reebok CrossFit Games. The victory was three years in the making, after he took back-to-back second-place finishes in 2014 and 2015. In 2014, Fraser’s debut Games appearance, he became the first man to seriously challenge Rich Froning—who had won the previous three CrossFit Games—for the title, earning the Rookie of the Year award for his efforts. Known for his hatred of second place, Fraser was unsatisfied with his consecutive silver finishes, and though he won the worldwide Open in 2015, it wasn’t until he stood atop the podium in 2016 that he showed signs of celebration. A former U.S. Olympic Weightlifting team hopeful sidelined by injury, Fraser has been a CrossFit athlete since 2012.
