The CrossFit Games Starts this Week
The Games season is a three-stage journey. The first step was the Open, a worldwide, inclusive, five-week competition that we all participated in as a gym the spring. The top athletes from the Open in each of the 17 regions around the world qualified for the second stage of the competition — Regionals, a three-day, live competition. The top three men, women, and teams in every regional advanced to the final level of competition – the 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games. The winner of the Games will be crowned the fittest men and women in the world.
Head over to the games website to keep up with all of the updates. You can tune into ESPN3 to live stream the events as they begin. The masters competition is scheduled to start Tuesday while individual and teams workouts will begin Friday with the possibility of an earlier start, as was the case last year.
