“We remain fully committed to planning a live competition with live media coverage,” CrossFit published on Intagram.
The company will continue to monitor events globally and is also evaluating options for a virtual competition.
Regardless the format, the 2020 CrossFit Games won’t be a public event.
“Due to sweeping decisions to ban large festivals and sporting events for the foreseeable future, we are suspending the on-site spectator experience for this year,” CrossFit said.
Refunds for fans and vendors will be issued.
Earlier this week, CrossFit Games tweeted the “Fittest on Earth will be crowned” and that the company was exploring all options for hosting the Games.
The decision carries with it major implications and many questions remain to be answered.
We’ll continue to monitor decisions and provide you with the latest information.
