The past weekend marked the 2022 HYROX World Championships that took place in the Las Vegas Convention Center on May 14th. This was first time in the race’s history, that the United States hosted the championships. Athletes from 22 countries competed for the chance to win it all.
Let’s look at the results of the 2022 HYROX World Championships.
HYROX, dubbed the World Series of Fitness, is a race born in Germany back in 2017 and, since then, has had every World Championships hosted there. Finally, this year we saw the culmination happen in sunny Las Vegas.
HYROX is a functional fitness slash endurance race where competitors try to complete the challenges in the fastest time. This year we’ve seen some HYROX US events and European events, with the 2022 HYROX European Championships happening back in March.
As a reminder, the HYROX race is structured into eight functional workouts with a one kilometer run between each.
Here’s the breakdown of the HYROX race:START
Going into the event, the favorites to win were Hunter McIntyre and Ryan Kent as last year’s winner, and this year’s European winner, Tobias Lautwein, didn’t participate.
McIntyre started off with a bang by running the first km in 2:39, and he didn’t let up after that. He managed to place first in five of the eight workouts! McIntyre won the race with a two-minute lead over Kent to claim his second HYROX World Championship title.
In the women’s division, there was a close battle for first place, but Kris Rugloski ended up edging out Linda Meier by 36 seconds to win the title.
