No, this is not another Crossfit boxing match like Dave Castro vs Josh Bridges, but instead is a year long competition between two elite coaches on whose athletes will perform the best throughout the season.
Recently both Orr and Bergeron have announced that multiple elite Crossfit Games athletes have moved and will be training on location together to prepare for the Games.
Both of these coaches have produced phenomenal results including multiple Crossfit Games championships so it is going to be exciting to see just how the year shapes up.
Let’s take a look at their teams below:
Wife to coach Shane Orr and the first woman to ever win 4 championships, Tia will be the face of PRVN and is going to be hard to beat at any point during the season.
- 2020 – 1st Place
- 2019 – 1st Place
- 2018 – 1st Place
- 2017 – 1st Place
- 2016 – 2nd Place
- 2015 – 2nd Place
Coming off of another successful year finishing in the top 5 at this year’s Games Wells is going to have the opportunity to sharpen herself against Toomey every day.
- 2020 – 5th Place
- 2019 – 15th Place
- 2018 – 8th Place
- 2017 – 14th Place
- 2016 – 6th Place
- 2015 – 16th Place
Moorad came out of nowhere in 2019 when his name wasn’t even on the radar and he ended up finishing 10th overall. He’s looking to repeat that in 2021.
- 2019 – 10th Place
- 2014 – 14th Place
Brother to Crossfit Games champion Ben Smith as well as being a multiple year Games athlete himself, Smith has experience and now gets to train with one of his best friends Brooke Wells.
- 2019 (Team Krypton) – 2nd Place
- 2018- 25th Place
- 2017- 36th Place
What about Mat Fraser? Although Fraser does train daily with Toomey and Orr, he is not officially a part of team PRVN.
2x Crossfit Games champion and the face of Comptrain athletes Davidsdottir has been coached by and lived with Bergeron for the past few years and it has only worked for her benefit.
She has the most experience of any athlete on this list and she has finished inside of the top 5 for the past 6 years.
- 2020 – 2nd Place
- 2019 – 4th Place
- 2018 – 3rd Place
- 2017 – 5th Place
- 2016 – 1st Place
- 2015 – 1st Place
- 2013 – 24th Place
- 2012 – 30th Place
Even though Kwant earned himself a spot as one of the 5 finalists at last year’s Games he somehow still was underestimated and flew under the radar. That was until he finished 2nd overall and made his presence known.
- 2020 – 2nd Place
- 2019 – 13th Place
- 2017 – 20th Place
- 2016 – 16th Place
Barnhart narrowly missed out on being a top 5 finalist at the 2020 Games by just two spots, and she is using that as motivation going into the coming season.
- 2020 – 7th Place
- 2019 – 7th Place
- 2017 – 15th Place
What about Cole Sager? Although Sager is a part of team Comptrain and gets his customized programming directly from Bergeron he will not be moving to Boston along with Barnhart and Kwant.
Both of these teams are absolutely stacked with talent and they may even add a couple more athletes as the season goes on.
This is going to be an interesting battle to watch all year, that’s for certain.
