Strength in Depth will be held again in London between January 24 and 26.
A stellar cast of athletes will take onto the competition floor and face off during the seven events programmed to really test the field.
Four-times Fittest Man on Earth Mathew Fraser and four-times Fittest Team on Earth Mayhem Freedom are set to make their season’s Sanctional debut in London this weekend.
Defending team champions Mayhem Freedom, competing at a Sanctional with Scott Panchik for the first time, will look to punch their invitation to the 2020 CrossFit Games at Strength in Depth. They will face off with another 18 teams.
