2023 CrossFit Games
Ohlsen’s career highlight is a runner-up finish at the 2019 CrossFit Games to five-time Fittest Man on Earth® Mat Fraser. The stakes are high for Ohlsen for the 2023 CrossFit Games, as he previously revealed that it will likely be his last season competing as an Individual athlete.
Expect Ohlsen to be in the mix toward the top of the field, as he has never finished worse than 15th at the Games and only finished outside the top 10 twice.
