Hunter McIntyre aka “The Sheriff” - You may not know exactly who he is, but you have most probably heard the name, or spotted the mullet. Hunter is currently the number one ranked HYROX athlete in the world, but there’s a lot more on the impressive resume of this world renowned athlete. So let’s find out - who is “The Sheriff?”
In the months immediately after the Games, Hunter switched up his training and dedicated his efforts to training for the sport of HYROX. HYROX is a competitive indoor fitness race that consists of eight 1km runs and eight functional workouts. As HYROX events are half strength, half cardio, Hunter was able to split his training right down the middle and able to showcase his speed and agility once more. Hunter is currently the number one ranked HYROX athlete in the world, after winning HYROX Chicago and HYROX Dallas. With the HYROX World Championships in Berlin currently being postponed, Hunter is still the athlete to watch within the HYROX space.
Hunter has an undeniable confidence and willingness to take on any challenge that life throws at him. “The Sheriff”, as he likes to refer to himself, is sure to cause a stir in a number of different sports. But he backs up that confidence time and time again with undefeated successes. As the saying goes, “there can only be one Sheriff in this town”, but it seems Hunter McIntyre runs quite a few.
