At 5 p.m. PT on Feb. 21, #19point1 will go live, kicking off competition and celebrations in affiliates and garage gyms.
The Open is the world’s largest participatory sporting event and a showcase of the global CrossFit community. This year initiates a new direction for the CrossFit Games. For the first time, National Champions from around the globe will qualify directly from the Open to the Games, held in Madison, Wisconsin.
Every country with a CrossFit affiliate in good standing has an opportunity to send its top female and top male competitor to the CrossFit Games. More than 150 leaderboards will host their own national competitions as part of the Open. Participants will see where they rank among their fellow countrymen and women throughout the five weeks.
In this new global game, National Champions will be crowned #InTheOpen.
Details about the National Champions competition in the Open are available in the Rulebook.
