The 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games Open has officially launched. Welcome to week one.
More than 55,000 athletes and 1,615 teams have registered for the 2012 Open competition. More 2,875 CrossFit affiliates are represented, which means more than 85 percent of affiliates worldwide have athletes participating in the Open.
In 2011, there were 26,000 athletes who participated in the entire competition. Now, more than double that amount are competing for Fittest on Earth.
To have your name up on the Leaderboard and qualify for Regionals, you must register, complete the workout, and submit your score no later than 5 p.m., PT on Sunday, February 26.
If you miss registering before Sunday, it is not your last chance to compete. After Sunday, you can still register and submit your score to the CrossFit Games site. However, those scores will not affect the Leaderboard and you may not qualify for competition beyond the Open,
A new year, a new season, the slates are wiped clean, and anything can happen.
