HISTORY OF THE DUBAI CROSSFIT CHAMPIONSHIP

2018

The Dubai CrossFit® Championship is the first CrossFit®, Inc. – sanctioned event in the world rewarding the first place male, female and team competitors with a qualification to the 2019 Rebook CrossFit Games®.

2016 – 2017

Expanding on the previous success of the event, the introduction of the online qualifier allowed the Dubai CrossFit® Championship to reach more athletes than ever before. In 2017 we welcomed a total of 72 athletes from 19 different countries representing four continents, including 32 CrossFit Games® athletes.

2012 – 2015

Prior to the online qualifier athletes were required to travel to Dubai and compete across multiple gyms and venues to earn a spot to the finals a week later which provided a great platform for the local fitness community to thrive and compete amongst themselves and set the stage for the years to come.
