Justin Medeiros is known for his tendency to turn setbacks into opportunities for improvement and ultimately, success. But that was a quality he had to learn the hard way.
In his pre-teen years, the naturally competitive Medeiros wasn’t known for taking losses well. But when he began wrestling in fourth grade, a near-winless first season taught him the true value of hard work and perseverance. He expanded his repertoire to football in seventh grade. That same year, his mother and sister introduced him to CrossFit to stay in shape between seasons.
In high school, he dropped football to concentrate on wrestling and CrossFit. Medeiros got his first in-person glimpse of the CrossFit Games as a volunteer during the 2015 event, and was inspired by two of the sport’s titans, Rich Froning and Jason Khalipa. He made his first true ark as a CrossFit Games competitor in the 16-17-year-old boys division in 2016.
As an adult, Medeiros’ unmatched dedication resulted in a rocket-ship ride up the world CrossFit Open rankings. From 2017 to 2019, he improved his world ranking from 384 to 119. In 2020 he landed a qualifying spot at the 2020 Crossfit Games and placed third, announcing his presence as a true contender among the sport’s greatest athletes.
Medeiros cemented his place in history by becoming the youngest Men’s Division champion at the 2021 Games.
Away from training and competition, Medeiros is a kinesiology major at Boise State University and enjoys a variety of outdoor activities such as fishing and hunting.
