The first, online stage of the 2020 CrossFit Games is set to start on Friday. Featuring the world’s top 20 athletes from the Open and Sanctional winners from 10 events, the competition will take place over two days.
This first stage (a competition in athletes’ home countries) will determine final placements and prize money for Games winners from 6th to 30th place (only the top 20 athletes receive prize money).
The top five men and women will then be invited to compete in Aromas, California, in the CrossFit Games in-person finals set for October 19-25. This second stage will determine the Fittest Man and Fittest Woman on Earth.
