CrossFit Inc. today announced three new officially sanctioned events that will lead to invites to the 2020 CrossFit Games. These events expand the 2019-2020 season calendar as outlined in previous event announcements.
Individual and team athletes will take the competition floor at newly sanctioned CrossFit competitions in Dublin, Ireland; Vancouver, Canada; and Quebec, Canada. The champions of the men’s, women’s and team competitions at each event will receive invitations to compete at the 2020 CrossFit Games in Madison, Wisconsin.
“As the CrossFit Games season expands internationally, so does the opportunity for CrossFit Inc. to support our affiliates,” said CrossFit CEO Jeff Cain. “These sanctioned events recognize the histories and individual character of a wide variety of CrossFit communities around the world.”
In November 2019, the Emerald Isle will welcome CrossFit competitors and fans from around the world. The CrossFit Filthy 150 anticipates hosting over 3,000 CrossFit competitors and spectators in Dublin, Ireland, to celebrate “fitness, teamwork, and the will to overcome” says event director Darina Dunne. “We can’t wait for everyone to experience the famous Irish welcome and perform in front of the best sports fans on the planet.”
In March 2020, the spotlight will turn to Quebec, Canada, on the road to the CrossFit Games. "The Atlas Games were created with one goal in mind: to provide a world-class competition experience for athletes, judges and volunteers,” says event director Alexis Leblanc-Bazinet. “It is an honour and privilege to now offer that opportunity alongside CrossFit Inc.” Building on its deep roots in the Canadian CrossFit community, this Sanctionals™ event will showcase local, national and international athletes.
