16 Sanctioned CrossFit Competitions.

“Regionals is going away.

CrossFit is currently in discussion with several outside competitions like Dubai Fitness Championship, Wodapalooza and Granite Games to partner with for the upcoming season. CrossFit will provide oversight, safety, medical staff and event expertise for a sanctioning fee. Any athlete or team who wins one of these events will receive an invitation to the CrossFit Games.

With one athlete from each of 162 countries attending the CrossFit Games, as well as a dozen or so more through sanctioned events, the roster of athletes has expanded significantly. At minimum we’re likely to see close to 350 male and female athletes, which is up from 80 this year.”
