Horvath won her first career CrossFit Games title by virtue of a performance that could be described as “boom or bust.” If the athlete performed well in an event, chances are, she was likely taking the victory. If she didn’t, she struggled to finish in the top 10. Nonetheless, her five event triumphs were enough to make history.

Horvath enters exclusive company as just 10th woman to ever win the Individual CrossFit Games. At just the age of 26, her reign might only be beginning. At the very least, Horvath has certainly distinguished as a household name and as a champion.
