CrossFit Adaptive Athletes Going to the Games and Winners

The first Fittest on Earth from 2023 has been unveiled.

The CrossFit Open happened a while ago, but only now the leaderboard has been finalised for the adaptive divisions and, with that, we already know some of the newly crowned Fittest on Earth from 2023.

According to the rulebook, CrossFit will continue this year what happened in the previous one: the top athletes from 3 adaptive divisions would go on to compete for the title of Fittest on Earth in Madison at the CrossFit Games, while the remaining divisions would have the Open determining who were the winners.

Although the leaderboard was finalised for the top athletes and contenders, CrossFit has said they are still working to identify ineligible athletes in the adaptive divisions – although those who might be deemed ineligible will not impact the podium finishers and athletes going to the Games.
