2014 Male & Female Top 30 Rankings

With the 2014 CrossFit Games now complete, we have once again crunched the numbers and updated ‘The Rx Review Rankings’ for individual male and female competitors.

Over the past three years, we have been regularly updating our Ranking charts, presenting what we feel is a fair analysis of the best functional-fitness athletes in the world.

We would like to make it clear that The Rx Review’s Rankings are completely independent, and are in no way linked to CrossFit HQ. The Rx Review’s Rankings also have no impact or bearing on any Event or Competition run by CrossFit, they are simply a points system created by us, ranking the top individual competitors across the world.

How The Rx Review Rankings Work:

We trawled through the results of the past eight CrossFit Games and came up with a points structure we believe is accurate.

Starting from 2007, top competitors in each year’s Games are awarded rankings points depending on where they finished, with winners receiving bonus points.

The point system stays the same for each CrossFit Games, but increases for every year after 2007. For example, a competitor who finished fourth in 2010 will receive more points than a competitor who finished fourth in 2008.

The system also includes the 2014 CrossFit Open and Regional results, but rewarded less points for top athletes. This is because there is essentially no major prize for the winner of the Open, and the level of competition compared to that of the Games is logically lower.

Next we added the 2014 CrossFit Games into the equation and once the final numbers were calculated, we removed any athletes who had been retired from the sport for over a year, and also deducted points for those who failed to qualify for this year’s Games for reasons other than injury or personal matters.

The parenthesise next to their current standing denotes the ranking each competitor had just after the 2014 CrossFit Games. If there is a (-), that indicates they were not within the top 30 prior to this.

In the end we came up with the following results for the 2014 Rankings:
