Who Are the Individual Athletes Going to the CrossFit Games for the First Time

Notable Names Not Going to the CrossFit Games

In the list below are names of CrossFit athletes who were bound to the Semifinals and either dropped out during the competition, days before, or couldn’t make the cut at the end of the weekend. These athletes have previous Games experience and were thought to be amongst the people going to Madison this year.

We are not considering those who pulled out substantially before the Semifinals (such as Tia-Clair Toomey), or those who got injured and were not able to compete well in advance (like Ricky Garard).
