So what’s the rundown?15.1 kicks off the first week of the CrossFit Open and you cannot get much bigger than Rich Froning and Mat Fraser. All the hype this year surrounds Fraser as a potential heir to “The Frone”. Can the second placed finisher in the 2014 CrossFit Games take it up to Froning, or will the four time champ hold strong?
The remainder of the five weeks is finished with an all mighty bang, with the last three winners of the CrossFit Games going head, to head to head. Sam Briggs, Camille Leblanc Bazinet and Annie Thorisdottir will battle out as a potential showdown for not only the winner of the overall CrossFit Open, but the subsequent champion of the hotly contested CrossFit Games.
