Colchester's Mathew Fraser Repeats as CrossFit Games Champion

MADISON, Wis. - For the second time in as many years, a Vermonter can himself "the fittest man on Earth".  Colchester's Mat Fraser is Crossfit Games Champion.

Fraser's final score of 1132 points out of a possible 1300 marks the most dominant victory in the Crossfit Games eleven-year history. His 216-point margin of victory over British Columbia's Brent Fikowski was the largest margin ever, surpassing the 197-point gap Fraser won with in 2017.

Fraser, who trains at Champlain Valley CrossFit in Williston, won four of thirteen events on his path to victory, including the "Triple-G Chipper", "Muscle-Up Clean Ladder", "Heavy 17.5", and "2223 Intervals".

The last event, called the "Fibonacci Final", was announced just hours before competition.  Fraser has already clinched the title, but finished in second anyway.

Following the last competition, he addressed the crowd, ""This is what I've worked for all year.  You know, the whole year for this weekend.  And it's this crowd that gets it going.  You know, I feed of them, they feed off me."

Before leaving the arena in Madison, the UVM graduate was asked when he would begin training for the 2018 games.  Fraser smiled and replied with a single word: "tomorrow."
