Yours truly, flanked by two of the 'Fittest Men on Earth' — two-time Reebok CrossFit Games champ Rich Froning Jr. (left) and the 2010 winner Graham Holmberg — this past February in Toronto.

Congrats to Rich Froning Jr., who won the 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games this past weekend to retain the trademarked title of the World’s Fittest Man on Earth.

That’s the moniker he first earned at the 2011 CrossFit Games.

And indeed, Rich gets richer. This year’s victory gives him another $250,000.

I featured Froning Jr. in March in my Keeping Fit column.

As part of the feature, I travelled to Toronto the previous month and had the good fortune to work out with Froning Jr. and fellow Reebok-sponsored athlete Graham Holmberg. Holmberg, of course, is the 2010 Reebok CrossFit Games champion. He finished 10th this year.

A tip of the hat to two incredible athletes and fitness role models.

Lord of the rings? Not quite. Froning Jr. (left) and Holmberg put me through my paces.
