Wodapalooza did not take place last year 2021 because of the pandemic. So the previous individual winners in the Wodapalooza 2020 Elite Division were Pat Vellner of Canada in the men’s and Tia-Clair Toomey-Orr of Australia in the women’s.


There are a total of 48 divisions in the competition, broken down into Individual, Team, Age and Adaptive (seated/standing).
