Watch Justin Medeiros’ Return to Training Following His 13th-Place Finish at the 2023 CrossFit Games

The 2023 CrossFit Games results were not what two-time Fittest Man on Earth® Justin Medeiros anticipated. After finishing 29th and 37th in the first two events, following a pair of bike crashes in the first event, Medeiros couldn’t catch up on the leaderboard by the end of the competition.

Medeiros ranked 13th overall and relinquished the Fittest Man on Earth® title to Jeffery Adler of Canada. Patrick Vellner and Roman Khrennikov took silver and bronze, respectively. 

On Sept. 16, 2023, Medeiros returned from some vacation time and published a video on his YouTube channel wherein he shared his first week of programming back in the gym. Check it out below:
