The 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games start next week. Dave Castro and the Games team have announced limited details of a few events. Below is what has been revealed for this year's Individual competition. Stay tuned as this article will be updated as new information becomes available.

Fifth Games Announcement
Also released is the Scoring System for both categories. Just like last year, Individual athletes will be scored on a 100-point system and all events are worth 100 points. The athlete with the most points at the end of the competition wins. There will be only one cut this year. The top 30 men and women will be invited to compete in the final event. All athletes will compete in all other events.
Teams will be scored with the same 100 Point Chart and a 50 Point Chart, depending on the event. In 2011 and 2012, teams used Friday and Saturday events as a qualifier to make it to Sunday where the slate was wiped clean and the top six teams battled in one final event to win the Affiliate Cup. Now, every event matters and the final event will be scored just like the others. No clean slate. Click here for more details.
