2020 CrossFit Games Announces New Online + In-Person Format

CrossFit today announced a change to the format for the 2020 Reebok CrossFit Games that will separate the event into two stages: an online competition in Athletes’ home countries from which the top five men and top five women will advance to an in-person finals in California to crown the Fittest Man and Fittest Woman on Earth.  
“The 2020 Reebok CrossFit Games are a go!,” said CrossFit CEO Eric Roza. “At CrossFit, we are always energized by a challenge, and hosting a worldwide sporting event in the age of COVID is no exception. We are excited to be able to deliver the CrossFit Games to our athletes, fans, and CrossFit gym members in 158 countries through a two-stage format that combines a worldwide online competition with a small in-person finals in Northern California. This innovative format will help us protect the safety of our athletes while delivering a world-class Games experience to identify the world’s fittest individuals.”
