Just a month ago, hundreds of thousands of athletes joined the CrossFit Open — some to enjoy a fun event with their fitness community and some to compete for a chance to advance to the next stage of the 2022 CrossFit Games season.
After three workouts spread over three weeks, one man and one woman rose to top the leaderboard in each division.Here’s a look at the division champs.
Both individual Open winners packed up and moved their lives to train with other top athletes in the sport this year. Now, we can see how a change in training teams can have a big payoffin competition performance.
Women: Mallory O'Brien
At 18 years old, Mallory O'Brien is the youngest winner in the history of the Open. The 2021 seventh-place Games finisher also set the record for the best Open performance based on average finish across all three workouts.
Never straying from the top two, O'Brien sandwiched a second-place 22.2 finish with outright victories in 22.1 and 22.3.
This year, O'Brien moved to Vermont to join Mat Fraser's HWPO training team. Currently leading the women’s division after the first stage of the season, she may be on track to plant herself on the podium at the finals by the end of 2022.
Men: Saxon Panchik
Close your eyes and point to the men’s leaderboard at any stage of CrossFit competition and odds are good you’ll hit a Panchik near the top —and indeed, Saxon Panchik claimed the top spot just two weeks after his appearance in the live announcement of Open Workout 22.2. The top performance is in keeping with the trend he set last year at the 2021 NOBULL CrossFit Games, where he took home a career-best finish of fifth.
Panchik joined the PRVN team this season and relocated to Nashville, where he has been training alongside five-time CrossFit Games champion Tia-Clair Toomey and seven-time Games athlete Brooke Wells at CrossFit East Nashville.
Girls: Lucy McGonigle
Lucy McGonigle took a clean sweep of all three Open workouts. The performance follows second-place finishes in the Open and the Games in the same division last year, proving the 15-year-old is ready to push to the top in 2022.
Boys: RJ Mestre
Last year, RJ Mestre was the highest-ranked 14-year-old after taking fifth in the 14-15 division at the 2021 NOBULL CrossFit Games. He went on to place second at the 2022 Wodapalooza Fitness Festival, a CrossFit-licensed event, in the Teens 13-15 division.

The now-17-year-old won 22.1 in her division, taking third in 22.2 and second in 22.3.

Women: Michelle Suozzi
Two-time Games athlete (Women 40-44) Michelle Suozzi started the 2022 Open in 10th. But after a second-place finish in 22.2 and win in 22.3, she closed the Open in the top overall spot.
The victory marked Suozzi's first career Open win, with a second-best placement of 13th in 2020.
