Executive Producer Sevan Matossian once again gives us unprecedented access to the fittest athletes on the planet, catching CrossFit Games competitors in intimate moments and vulnerable positions.

In the final installment, Matossian follows the drama behind the scenes as the athletes head into the last three events: Midline Madness, Pedal to the Metal 1 and Pedal to the Metal 2.

Eventual champion Ben Smith, a notoriously low-drama competitor, makes Matossian work hard to find material. When asked what he’s thinking on the final day, Smith responds, “I’m not thinking much. That’s the key.”

Emotions run slightly higher with other competitors. As the podium enters her sights, Tia-Clair Toomey tells Matossian, “I’m freaking out. It’s a massive shock to me.”

Energy levels again surge as the athletes prepare to enter the competition floor for the last time.

“Let’s fucking do this,” Chyna Cho says to Lindsey Valenzuela.
