CrossFit Open Workout 24.2 Will Feature Justin Medeiros Vs. Colten Mertens

The 2024 CrossFit Open is fast approaching. While the details for each of the three workouts that comprise the Open won’t be announced until their respective live announcements on the CrossFit Games YouTube channel, the elite athletes that will tackle the Open workouts first are raising the anticipation.

Workout 24.1 will feature Jeffrey Adler, Brent Fikowski, Alex Gazan, and Alexis Raptis on Feb. 29, 2024. One week later, on March 7, 2024, workout 24.2 will feature the head-to-head clash of two-time Fittest Man on Earth® Justin Medeiros and four-time CrossFit Games athlete Colten Mertens.

Justin Medeiros

Medeiros made his CrossFit Games debut in 2020 and has had a remarkable career thus far. His four Games appearances comprise three podium finishes, including back-to-back wins in 2021 and 2022.

Medeiros’ career-best Open finish worldwide was third place in 2022. His average Open rank since 2019 is 51.5 — a mark of consistency. After a 13th-place finish at the 2023 CrossFit Games — the lowest rank of his Games career — Medeiros is expected to return with a renewed fire in 2024.

Colten Mertens

Mertens made his CrossFit Games debut in 2018, ranking 19th overall. He has competed at the Games every year since 2021, ranking 31st in 2021, 32nd in 2022, and a career-best 18th in 2023.

Mertens has competed in the Open every year since 2017 and has steadily improved his worldwide rank each year. From 2017 to 2023, he progressed his worldwide Open rank year-over-year from 5,923rd to 434th to 403rd to 108th to 18th to fourth to third. If Mertens can continue this progression, he should be a favorite to return to the Games in 2024 and challenge for a top 10 rank.
