This is the 3rd Edition of the French Throwdown sponsored by Reebok. 1800 athletes battled it out to discover who were the fittest men and women in 2014. This first qualifier was announced on April 5, 2014. It is one of the CrossFit "Girl" Benchmark workouts, "Fran."

In 2018 the French Throwdown became one of the official CrossFit Games sanctioned events, meaning winners get a ticket to compete in the next CrossFit Games.
