CrossFit Worldwide Ranking System Updated: Adler Passes Medeiros, Lawson Climbs to 2nd

The worldwide ranking system of CrossFit has undergone an update after the end of the 2023 CrossFit Games. As anticipated, significant shifts within the top 100 rankings have occurred for both male and female participants. While Laura Horvath successfully maintained her first-place position, Adler surpassed Justin Medeiros to claim the leading spot.

The implementation of the new global ranking system played a decisive role in determining the allocation of Games-qualifying slots for each of the Semifinal competitions. The quantity of athletes within the top 100 of the updated ranking system participating in a given Semifinal directly influenced the probability of that specific event receiving an additional invitation to the CrossFit Games.
