8 Quick Takeaways From the (Unofficial) CrossFit Quarterfinals Leaderboard

The second window for submitting scores closed on Monday night, revealing a complete picture of the unofficial 2024 CrossFit Quarterfinals leaderboard.

While things are changing and will continue to do so as scores are reviewed and adjusted, some highlights stood out at first glance.

1. Unofficially Tia-Clair Toomey-Orr has won Worldwide Quarterfinals for the 3rd time.

  • If her scores remain the same after review, she will have recorded two firsts and two seconds for six total points.

  • When she won in 2022, she had 16 points in five workouts (4th, 1st, 3rd, 7th, and 3rd). In 2021, she finished at the top with 13 points across five scores. 

2. If the leaderboard remains as is, Jonne Koski would become the first man to win the Open and the World Wide Quarterfinals in the same year.

3. PRVN women won three out of the four events worldwide, Olivia Kerstetter (Workouts 1 and 4) and Tia-Clair Toomey-Orr (Workout 3).

Grow Your CrossFit Gym Membership With a Health Practitioner Referral Network

It started with a simple introduction to a local doctor back in 2012. 

But it was a connection, a foot in the door for Nicole Aucoin, the owner of CrossFit HSN in Deerfield Beach, FL, and the founder of HSN Nutrition. 

Twelve years later, Aucoin has an entire network of doctors and other health practitioners sending CrossFit and nutrition clients her way, including a pediatric gastroenterologist, who became her number one referral source for more than 10 years, an endocrinologist, a general practitioner and a chiropractor. 

She even has a local physical therapist who sells her HSN Nutrition coaching to his clients, and says her health practitioner referral network accounts for 30 percent of her nutrition clients. 

Partnering with other practitioners has been so successful for her that, through HSN Mentoring, Aucoin is now teaching other gym owners to do the same. 

  • “We have some gyms doing really cool things in our ecosystem: partnering with hospitals, surgeons, functional medicine doctors…This is a huge opportunity,” Aucoin said in an interview with the Morning Chalk Up.


So… what exactly does collagen do, again? This nutrient is Insta-trending for a reason – it’s essential for healthy skin, joints, and bones. The big bummer: many collagen supplements are made with artificial ingredients and (gross) animal byproducts. NativePath has a different approach. NativePath collagen is certified grass-fed and pure, and sourced from 100% happy, healthy cows… so you can put nutrients into a happy, healthy human. It provides Types 1 and 3 collagen – more than 90% of your body’s needs. Plus, it’s tasty and provides 20 grams of protein, so you’ll get lots of energy to boot. Find out more about the many benefits of NativePath’s collagen powder on their website!

Pliability Names Cody Mooney Managing Partner

The pliability brand has become a fixture in the CrossFit space, in part due to the hard work that Cody Mooney has contributed to the company directly since 2020 and even earlier as an athlete ambassador in 2017. 

  • His commitment and energy have now come full circle as the company announces that he’s been named a managing partner. 

Up until now, Mooney has served as the Director of Performance and worked under current pliability founder, Scott Perkins. 

His contributions to the brand thus far have been fundamental in its growth and 2022 rebrand from pliability’s previous name, ROMWOD. 

Remind me: Pliability is a mobility brand that provides guided mobility routines backed by elite athletes and subject matter experts. 

By transitioning to pliability, the business (with its eight-figure revenue) achieved major growth, with a 2024 YTD MRR growth of 13.19 percent. While its foundation is CrossFit, pliability has expanded into golf, running, pregnant and postpartum women, and everyday people. 

The brand has become one of the most successful businesses to grow out of CrossFit since 2020.

  • Mooney, 29, first entered the CrossFit space as an athlete, going to the Games as a team athlete two times, but later turning his attention to coaching. And soon after, finding a position within pliability. 

  • “I always felt like what I was doing with the brand – I treated it always as if it was fully mine. I gave it all that attention, the love, the care, the care about the team, the people. It wasn't just like a nine-to-five for me. It was always more than that because I was really passionate about it,” Mooney tells Morning Chalk Up in an interview. 

The company has formed partnerships with elite CrossFit athletes, such as Games champions Laura Horvath and Tia-Clair Toomey-Orr, to lead specific routines on their app.
