How Much Money Did Athletes Win at the 2021 CrossFit Games?

Athletes and Teams earned cash prize from CrossFit Inc. from being in the podium, but Individuals also earned extra cash if they finished in the top 3 at an event.

Sunday wrapped up the 2021 CrossFit Games and many athletes, although not on the podium, ended with a big sum of money in their pockets. This is how much each athlete and team won in cash prize during the Games from CrossFit Inc.

Beginning of June CrossFit Inc. announced the largest prize purse in CrossFit Games history. More than $2.5 million will be handed to athletes and teams depending on their rank and individual events.

The Fittest on Earth, for example, received $310,000 each. Also, if an individual athlete finished in the top 3 at any event, he or she will receive up to $3,000 for that event alone.
