Toomey placed second, making her one of the fittest women in the world.

Her welcoming committee included Gladstone Mayor Gail Sellers and Member for Gladstone Glenn Butcher.

Toomey, 22, is the owner of CrossFit Gladstone.

At the games, she finished just 50 points behind the first placegetter after four gruelling days of competition.
