236 CrossFit Open National Champions Announced!

With the review process now complete, CrossFit has announced the highest ranked male and female athletes of each nation that took part in the Open

National Champions from 236 countries have been sent invitations to the 2019 Games following their performance at the Open.

Following a ruling change this season, the top male and female athletes of each participating country in the Open Leaderboard will receive an invitation to the 2019 CrossFit Games.

For the first time, the CrossFit Games will see athletes from all around the world compete at the highest stage of the sport.

In a press release, CrossFit highlighted athletes such as Kila Kilaverave from Papua New Guinea, who performed workouts in front of his community and utilised a basketball hoop for toes-to-bars; and Shingo Moromasa, a gymnast and stuntman from Japan.

Many countries could see their first individual representation at the Games, mirroring CrossFit’s global community and celebrating its diversity.

Of course, defending champions Tia-Clair Toomey and Mathew Fraser will see their way back to the Games as national champions of Australia and the US respectively.
