Europe Will Be Split into 2 Regions for The 2018 Regionals

Many more European athletes will now be able to make it to The CrossFit Games.

During the cool down show after the 2017 CrossFit Invitational, Dave Castro announced some big changes that will be taking place during the 2018 CrossFit season. Europe will now be split into two regions.

He didn’t disclose the exact details but outlined that northern Europe will be given its own competition, and southern Europe, the Middle East and Africa will be the geographical regions that make up the second Meridian Regional. 

The Regionals format will be restructured to create a more international distribution of Athletes that will then be able to make it to the CrossFit Games.

  • Previously North America sent 30 people to The Games, now it will only have 25 spots
  • The rest of the world had 10 spots, but Dave Castro has increased that to 15 spots

Editor-In-Chief at BOXROX. I come from a background of rugby and weightlifting. Growing up in the English Lake District, I spent a great deal of time swimming in its stunning lakes and rivers. In 2015 my brothers and I became the first people to swim the 145km length of the River Eden, from source to mouth, in 9 days. We also swam the Corryvreckan whirlpool, the third largest in the world, and Crossfit is a huge part of my training for these events.
