1:01 At the 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games, Rich Froning earned the title Fittest Man on Earth for the fourth consecutive year. The champ has competed in the Games five times and explained how 2014 was different. Froning had his struggles this year and talked about how he was mad he wasn’t in the final heat at times. Froning’s worst event was Triple-3, and he explained why he had to stop and walk several times during the 3-mile run. Froning sealed his win by taking first in all three events on Sunday, and he shared his thoughts on why he consistently does so well on the final day of the Games. Froning, who’s now a father, explained his decision not to compete as an individual next year, and he gave his thoughts on the new CrossFit Team Series. Froning also explained why Project Mayhem has been put on temporary hold, then crushed the Lighting Round of questions.
