Jack Fleming's 2023 CrossFit Season is Over After Quarterfinal Injury

March 21, 2023

CrossFit Blackburn athlete, Jack Fleming, has been forced to pull out of the 2023 CrossFit Games season due to injury. Finishing 30th in the 2022 Torian Pro, taking 4th during off-season competition ‘Chasing Better Throwdown’ behind the likes of Royce Dunne and John Champion, and breaking into the top 100 after this years’ Open, it was shaping up to be a good season for Jack.

Unfortunately during 2023 Quarterfinal Workout 3 (the same workout in which Khan Porter sustained a back injury), Jack is believed to have fractured a rib on the clean and jerk portion of the test, however still maintained a strong performance, completing 5 rounds in 9 minutes. Despite the injury, he was able to push through and managed to finish 13th in Oceania for Workout 4.

"I’m equally excited to support and cheer on my friends who will be competing at Torian this year. The guys at the top of the leaderboard are some of the nicest people I’ve met, and I am keen to be inspired by what they’re able to do this year."

Turning towards recovery for the off-season, Jack said “I trust my strength and my fitness, but my gymnastics continues to be the weakness between me and my goals. I am looking forward to taking the time to recover and prioritise my health”. Aiming to reach the semifinals again next year, he has his eyes set on a top 10 finish by the end of 2024.


As always, we’re hoping Jack has a quick recovery and can start chasing down his goals for the 2024 CrossFit Games Season.
