Camille Leblanc-Bazinet Tops The 2014 Crossfit® Women Rankings


2014 Crossfit

Canadian Camille Leblanc-Bazinet competed in her fifth Reebok CrossFit Games and finished on top of the podium for the first time. Camille beat out the 2011 and 2012 champion, Annie “Iceland Annie” Thorisdottir by 40 points. In 2013, Camille finished in 16th place but bounced back to claim the top spot this year. Prior to this year’s Games her highest finish was sixth in 2012. Camille’s gymnastic background proved to be helpful in route to her fist win at the Games. “I attacked more of my weaknesses. I worked my ass off. Every year, you get better at finding your weaknesses,” Leblanc said in post win interview.

Thorisdottir was second, and Julie Foucher finished in third.

CrossFit introduced “the sport of fitness” in 2007. The 2007 Crossfit Games pale in comparison to what the event has become today. Today, thousands of spectators attend the Games and many more watch on ESPN. The total Games payout in 2014 grew to $1,750,000. The total 2015 prize purse will increase to $2,000,000 and by 2020 plans to reach $3,000,000. At the 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games, the top 20 men and 20 women took home prize money. First place (for both the men and women) received $275,000. It’s one of the few sporting events where the women’s pay is equal to the men. Individuals earned extra money by winning individual events. Along with the individual open competition, the Games features a Team event and Master’s competitions.
