2019 Press Page

Thanks for choosing to cover the CrossFit Games. Below you will find some press-ready assets for your use.

The CrossFit Games are a grueling multi-day, multi-event competition where elite athletes and teams from around the world compete in the ultimate test of fitness. Events are kept secret until just before the competition, and athletes train all year to prepare themselves for the unknown and unknowable challenges they will face.

CrossFit Games events contain a wide range of high-intensity, functional movements including gymnastics skills, powerlifting, Olympic lifting, running, rowing, and more. Athletes might perform snatches, attempt deadlifts, climb ropes, scale obstacles, lift sandbags—any movement is fair game if it tests skill, overall athleticism, and determination.

Athletes and teams are ranked against their peers, and the winners are crowned Fittest on Earth after proving their fitness in a series of diverse events over the course of several days. The 2019 event is the 12th annual edition of the CrossFit Games, and the total purse this year is more than $2.8 million USD.

The CrossFit Games competition is a private event owned and operated by CrossFit, Inc. (“CrossFit”). It’s the greatest gathering and expression of the CrossFit community on the planet, and it’s the proving grounds for the Fittest on Earth. 

CrossFit has long recognized that the execution, energy, fun, and excitement of the Games are driven by those who attend, volunteer, participate, and compete. CrossFit’s 2019 Media Guidelines are intended to encourage individuals to capture, record, and broadcast their experience of the CrossFit Games in whatever manner and on whatever platform they choose. Tell your CrossFit Games story to your community through your pictures. 

For this reason, CrossFit has revised its guidelines to allow individuals attending the event to use professional-quality photography and recording equipment (including selfie sticks), provided that their use is non-commercial and non-professional in nature and does not impede the event experience for others. Bring your big lenses and tripods. 

For those who look to produce professional or commercial media in connection with the event, CrossFit enforces certain restrictions, additional guidelines, and limitations. 

Violations of these guidelines may result in your removal from the event, the revocation of your credential(s), and other legal action.

CrossFit encourages you to express yourself and capture the event and community as a photographer, videographer, and/or audio artist.

CrossFit defines fitness as increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains. Since 2007, the CrossFit Games have evolved to push athletes’ limits and determine who is the fittest.

The CrossFit Games have evolved to accommodate the growing diversity of the CrossFit community. CrossFit’s rapid, worldwide growth has enabled athletes and teams from every corner of the globe to participate. Extensive media coverage from outlets such as ESPN and CBS Sports, as well as livestreams, serve to inspire rising competitors.

Quick Facts

  • CrossFit introduced the Sport of Fitness to the world in 2007 when around 70 athletes gathered at a ranch in Aromas, California, for the inaugural CrossFit Games. CrossFit Founder Greg Glassman believed the fittest athletes should be able to handle any and every task, so one event was chosen at random. The only way to win: do more work faster than anyone else.
  • From 2007 to 2008, the Games went from 70 athletes to approximately 300.
  • In 2009, the Games marked the global explosion of CrossFit with regional qualifiers held in the U.S., Canada, South America, Europe, Iceland, Asia, Australia and Africa, as well as online. 
  • 2009 also featured 100 teams competing in the Affiliate Cup. There were team competitions in 2007 and 2008, but they were made up of the combined scores of individual athletes. Teams competed together for the first time in 2009.
  • In 2010, the event grew too big for The Ranch and moved to the Home Depot Center (now StubHub Center) in Carson, California. 
  • For the first time in history, in 2010 the CrossFit Games featured male and female masters competitions, with athletes aged 50 and older.
  • In 2011, the masters competition was expanded to four male and four female divisions.
  • In 2011, an off-site event tested athletes in the waves at the Santa Monica Pier—a first for the Games.
  • The 2011 Reebok CrossFit Games were streamed on ESPN3.com and telecast on ESPN2 in a series of episodes that aired after the competition. 
  • In 2012, the Central East Regional featured two former CrossFit Games champions competing in the same regional for the first time. Rich Froning and Graham Holmberg also competed against 2011 Open winner Dan Bailey in an event that was streamed live over the internet on ESPN3.com.
  • In 2012, Rich Froning and Annie Thorisdottir became the first repeat champions of the CrossFit Games.
  • At the Games in 2012, all events were streamed live on Games.CrossFit.com, and each day six hours of content was produced for ESPN3.com. After the Games, 17 shows were produced and aired on ESPN, ESPN2 and Canada’s TSN.
  • In 2013, the 40-44 Masters Division was added to the competition, and the masters events were held earlier in the Games week.
  • In 2013, the CrossFit Games repeated a workout for the first time as the athletes performed the triplet that opened the 2007 competition.
  • In 2013, all CrossFit Games heats and events were shown on ESPN3 (or on Games.CrossFit.com for international viewers). This was also the first year events were held in the soccer stadium.
  • In 2014, more than half of the individual events took place in the soccer stadium to accommodate more fans.
  • Froning won the CrossFit Games for the fourth time and announced he would not compete as an individual in 2015.
  • Select events from the 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games were also broadcast live on ESPN’s platforms on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and all events were broadcast live on ESPN3 on all competition days (or on Games.CrossFit.com for international viewers).
  • In 2015, CrossFit Games coverage on ESPN and ESPN2 increased to 16.5 hours and featured events from the team competition for the first time. ESPN broadcast a total of six hours live on Friday and Saturday, and ESPN2 aired three and a half hours of live competition on Sunday. All heats of all events were streamed live on ESPN3 and YouTube. 
  • Froning returned to the Games podium by winning the 2015 Affiliate Cup with CrossFit Mayhem Freedom.
  • Four teenage divisions (boys and girls 14-15 and 16-17) were added in 2015. 
  • In 2016, the Games were streamed on YouTube and WatchESPN, with 10 hours of live content on ESPN networks. The Games also used Facebook live to bring exclusive content to the social-media audience.
  • Individual athletes were surprised to travel at the start of the Games in 2016. With little warning and no mention of final destination, they flew from Los Angeles to San Jose and rode a bus to complete three events at The Ranch in Aromas, the site of the first three editions of the CrossFit Games. 
  • In 2017, the Games took place outside California for the first time, at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin. 
  • The masters competition included a new 35-39 division. The four teenage divisions expanded from 10 to 20 competitors in each category. In 2017, teens had to qualify for the Games via an online qualifier similar to that used to select masters athletes since 2014. 
  • The competition was streamed live to Facebook and the CrossFit Games website, and CBS Sports Network aired four preview shows in the lead-up to the competition, plus two hours of competition coverage every day during the Games. CBS’ flagship network aired a one-hour live look on Aug. 5, and a highlight show on Sept. 3. In the fall, CBS Sports Network aired a series of one-hour episodes.
  • Mathew Fraser won the Games for the second consecutive time. He won with 1,132 out of 1,300 possible points, at the time giving him the most dominant performance in CrossFit Games history by both points margin over second place and percentage of points earned (in the Open era).
  • Tia-Clair Toomey and Kara Saunders (formerly Kara Webb) were the first two Australian individuals to podium at the CrossFit Games. Toomey took first, Saunders took second. (Australian male individual Ricky Garard took third but was later stripped of his title after testing positive for banned performance-enhancing substances in a sample taken after the final event.)
  • In 2018, the number of regional competitions expanded from eight to nine. The Latin America and Europe Regionals were reinstated while the U.S. regionals were consolidated to five. 
  • In 2018, Mathew Fraser won the Games for the third consecutive time (one short of Rich Froning’s four consecutive individual championships). He won with 1,162 out of 1,400 possible points, giving him the most dominant performance in CrossFit Games history by points margin (220 points) over second place (beating his record from 2017).
  • In 2018, Tia-Clair Toomey won her second consecutive Games tying her for the most all time by a woman with Annie Thorisdottir and Katrin Davidsdottir.
  • In 2018, CrossFit Mayhem Freedom returned to the top of the podium to win their third CrossFit Games Team competition – the most of all time. 
  • The team competition that year featured teams of four athletes, reduced from six which was the standard number of team members since 2010.  
  • For the 2019 Games season, CrossFit HQ made many significant structural changes. First, regionals were eliminated. “Sanctionals” were created, which incorporated past independent competitions and brand new competitions. There was a total of 15 two- to four-day Sanctional competitions that provided a direct invite to the 2019 Reebok CrossFit Games for the individual man and woman winners, and the 4-person team winner (one Sanctional did not have a team competition, thus 14 teams were invited to the Games). Secondly, the Open became a direct qualifier to the Games. Each country that had at least one CrossFit affiliate was able to send their man and woman National Champion of the Open to the Games.  Third, the top 20 men and women Open finishers who were not National Champions were also invited to the Games.  Lastly, the number of Games qualifiers in each age group division was reduced from 20 to 10.
  • The CrossFit Games coverage will be delivered by an open-source world feed onsite, which will provide video of the events with graphics. The world feed will be used by over 30 media outlets around the world to broadcast their own unique commentary on their platforms. 

There are two main pathways competitors can take to get to the Games: the Open and Sanctionals. 

The Open

The worldwide Open is a community-driven, five-week competition. The top ranked competitors in a number of categories will advance to the Games. 

Those who advance past the Open fit into one of the following categories: National Champions, top 20 men and women on the worldwide leaderboard, or Age Group Online Qualifiers.

National Champions—one man and one woman—are crowned in each country with a CrossFit affiliate, and will advance directly to the Games. 

The top 200 men and women in each age division advance from the Open to the AGOQ, which will send the top 10 from each age group to the Games

Sanctionals

Hosted around the world, Sanctional competitions name the top man, woman, and team. Sanctional winners received an invite to the Games. Sanctionals are the only way for teams (2 men + 2 women) to earn invitations to compete at the Games in Madison, Wisconsin.
