Furthermore, due to difficulty in travel and for the convenience of the athletes, a handful have been allowed to compete in the Semifinal closer to their current location (rather than their country of birth).

This means that Fittest on Earth Tia-Clair Toomey-Orr has moved from CrossFit Atlas Games (North America) to the Mid-Atlantic CrossFit Challenge (North America) and Emma Chapman has moved from CrossFit Atlas Games (North America).

How many athletes will be going to the Games?

Following the weekend, the top 5 men, 5 women and 5 teams from the Mid-Atlantic CrossFit Challenge Semifinal advance to the Games.
