Who Won the 2016 Reebok CrossFit Invitational?
So, who were the big winners at this year’s Reebok CrossFit Invitational? Team Europe took home the gold with a team point total of 23. Team members were Lukas Hogberg of Sweden, Björgvin Karl Guðmundsson of Iceland, Sara Sigmundsdóttir of Iceland, and the two-time Fittest Woman on Earth, Katrin Davidsdottir, also from Iceland.
This is only the second time in the event’s short five year history that the winning team did not come from the United States. Team Europe was finally able to capitalize on the lofty expectations that were placed on them from 2015.
Team Europe survived a hard fought battle consisting of seven events and a three team showdown where the winner was crowned. You can go back and read about them in part one of this series by clicking here. Check out the final team point totals below.
- Team Europe – 23 points
- Team USA – 16 points
- Team Pacific – 14 points
- Team Canada – 10 points
So after two consecutive years of being the champions, Team USA must say goodbye to the Invitational crown and bragging rights as they head across the pond until next year.
