1 – The Adaptive Division’s Closing CrossFit Games Workout
The greatest moment from the 2021 CrossFit Games didn’t belong to any of the individual athletes, but to the Adaptive divisions.
This was the first year adaptive Divisions were included in the CrossFit Games and not many moments can compare to the emotions at play during the final event of the adaptive divisions; emotions that overflowed anyone watching.
It’s incredibly powerful witnessing someone overcome hardship, and the last workout at the CrossFit Games captured the atelicity, tenacity and grit these incredible athletes display.
It was mind blowing to see adaptive athletes on the competition floor and witness how they adapt the movements we all do in training day in and day out.
There is no question that representation matters and, even though only three divisions made an appearance at the CrossFit Games in 2021, you can be sure this division will grow and spread in the future as a result of it.
Not only on a CrossFit Games level, but CrossFit Affiliates will see more adaptive athletes go through their doors and the interest in learning how to optimally coach and include them will grow.
The value of including these divisions in the CrossFit Games cannot be understated.
