9. Tia-Clair Toomey’s nail-biting finish
Going into the final event—a sprint of parallette handstand push-ups, kettlebell deadlifts, and overhead lunges, cleverly named the “Fibonacci Final”—Toomey led her fellow Aussie, Kara Webb, by only six points. Toomey was poised to beat Webb for the entirety of the lunges, but just as she crossed the finish line, she dropped the left kettlebell and had to backtrack. Webb finished .19 seconds ahead—but Toomey’s lead held, earning her the title of Fittest Woman on Earth.
