Dubai CrossFit Championship Prize Purse Released with Every Athlete Earning Money

The potential payout per athlete is one of the highest in the event’s history due to the smaller field.

The Dubai CrossFit Championship prize purse for 2021 has just been released.

A lot of money is on the line for the 20 male and 20 female athletes competing in Dubai in December.
