Claire, who has an Instagram following of 7.7 lakh, is a former athlete and no stranger to tough workouts.

Who won the challenge?

American middle-distance track athlete Symmonds tweeted, “Claire Thomas is the strongest person in the world!! We went head to head over several events for this week’s video to see who is the better all around athlete. Not going to give too much away, but I got my ass kicked! Proud to say I was able to beat her in a few events though. You’re gonna like this video!!”

Since being shared on YouTube by Nick Symmonds, many viewers praised both the participants for their great form.
