Top athletes who won’t make Semifinals

Bethany Shadburne will miss another CrossFit Games season after injuring her back warming up for the “Other Total”, event 4 of the Quarterfinals. The incredible athlete missed last years’ CrossFit Games after testing positive for covid days before the event was set to start.

Additionally, unless many penalties are assessed and scores change around a bit in the Europe region, it looks like Sam Briggs won’t make a return to the Individual division this year. She currently sits in 67th place, with only 60 athletes advancing through to Europe’s two Semifinals.

The 40-year-old and previous CrossFit Games winner had planned to retire after this season. She is still eligible to compete in the Masters Quarterfinals in two weeks’ time.
