The final day of Wodapalooza in Miami was off to a rocky start after a weather delay postponed the starting time until later in the evening on Sunday.
Despite these setbacks, the 2022 champions of Wodapalooza have been crowned. Here's the Sunday summary, along with a list of this year's Wodapalooza winners.
Wodapalooza is one of the most significant events of the CrossFit sanctioned season. Athletes from all around the world gather to push themselves and each other in an attempt to earn a spot at the CrossFit Games, which will happen later this year. This whole event was filled with action, but only one man, one woman, and two teams would end up walking away victorious in the Elite division.
From January 13th to the 16th, individuals and teams competed in eight workouts consisting of heavy barbell lifts, HIIT work, water-based competitions, and much more.

The final events for Wodapalooza were tough ones! They featured difficult sandbag carries, shuttle runs, toe to bars, devil presses, and handstand walks. For these elite athletes, the final events tested them physically and mentally.
Ultimately, this is how the final events would wind up.
Below you'll find the winners in the Elite division of the competition including teams and individual.
Elite Team Women
Elite Team Men
After the final event, Team Kriger was able to get their fourth win of the week, securing the female Elite championship. Team Kriger and MayFem dominated the competition this year, with neither team placing lower than fourth in any event this week.
The men's teams fought valiantly, but "The Boys" easily swept first place with their closest competition (Thunder From Down Under), finishing 45 points behind them.
Both first-place teams took home $25,000.
Elite Individual Men
Elite Individual Women
Patrick Vellner went into the last competition with a solid 65 point lead over Alexandre Caron. Patrick has been competing in Crossfit since 2013 and was ranked 2nd in the men's division in 2021. This makes this his third consecutive Wodapalooza win.
Despite a first-place finish in the last event, Bethany was unable to catch up with Emma.
Patrick Vellner and Emma McQuaid each took home the biggest prizes in Wodapalooza's 10-year history, $100,000 each!
Congratulations to everyone that competed this year, and we can't wait to watch some of these athletes return later this year to compete in the Crossfit games!
