Currently Zachery Buntin from the United States is leading the men after two workouts (19.1 and 19.2), while Ragnheidur Sara Sigmundsdottir is first for the women. Sigmundsdottir, who is 26 and from Iceland, came 21st last year in the Open, and was fourth in the 2017 CrossFit Games. In 2018 she struggled with an injury in the Games and ended up finishing 37th. She is seen as one of the contenders who could possibly beat Tia-Clair Toomey, who has won the women’s event at the Games the past two years.
Currently Victoria Campos, who hails from Brazil and lives in Hong Kong and works for CrossFit Asphodel, is sixth in Brazil. Ant Haynes, who hails from Hong Kong and works for Coastal Fitness, is 103rd overall, and first in China (CrossFit has China and Hong Kong as the same country under its new rules).
