“The fittest athlete on the planet is coming out of the CrossFit Games.” — Todd Widman, CrossFit Seminar Staff Flowmaster
From their inception, the CrossFit Games have been unlike traditional sports such as track and field, gymnastics, weightlifting, or even decathlon — all specialist sports in which the events are known long in advance.
Instead, athletes from around the world are tested against a variety of unannounced events, each intentionally varied with different movements, equipment, and time domains.
The fittest athlete on Earth, as Chuck Carswell explains, is “the person who performs statistically best at all of the activities we test. … That’s who the fittest is.”
The 2022 NOBULL CrossFit Games start Aug. 3.
