Happy Star Highlights
The women were lining up for the first mountain run and event nine was underway. Brooke Wells led the run and was the first to their engines, but it was more or less a breakneck start with everyone on par as the athletes’ lanes were no longer on track. In the third lap, Wells pushed their lead with Toomey not far behind. Katrin Tanja Davíðsdóttir, Haley Adams and Kari Pearce ran as a pack up and down the third hill.
In the final run, Wells and Toomey were still battling for first place when Pearce made his way into the middle of the field, with Davíðsdóttir and Adams in fourth and fifth respectively. On the final engines, Toomey’s reps were clean and she crossed the finish line to complete one perfect sweep on day two. Wells struggled after failing a few reps and opened the door for Pearce and Davíðsdóttir to overtake them in that order.
Wells was able to save fourth place, leaving the last place for Adams.

The first run for the men kept their track order: Samuel Kwant, Justin Medeiros, Fraser, Jeffrey Adler and Noah Ohlsen. Kwant, who started the race in last place overall but was only 45 points behind second place, led the field into the second round of the burpees. His lead was short-lived, as Fraser claimed, and then accelerated the pace for the next two laps.
Like his training partner Toomey, Fraser ended a perfect second day by winning all four events. Medeiros seemed to run out of gas in the last run and was way behind the last set of burpees. Kwant finished second throughout the event, scoring the much-needed 75 points. Adler was seven seconds behind Kwant; Ohlsen and Medeiros rounded it off.
The last day is near
Toomey and Fraser start with a very, very strong lead into the third day, on which (as of now) two events will take place. Nothing is impossible however, the rest of the leaderboards in both divisions are still in flux and podiums are still everyone’s game.
