Without Dave Castro in the picture, who will program the 2022 CrossFit Games? Justin Bergh answered that question once and for all recently.
Justin Bergh is CrossFit’s general manager of Sport and he was one of the presenters on this year’s first affiliate town hall.
He talked about how CrossFit wants to evolve, but also preserve a few characteristics that made the sport this worldwide phenomenon. When it comes to preserving, Bergh said, CrossFit wants to maintain the title of “Fittest on Earth.” One of the questions he answered was who will program the 2022 CrossFit Games.
“To maintain that going forward, we have chosen Adrian Bozman to lead programming for the next version of the CrossFit Games,” Bergh revealed.
You can check out his talking points in the video below.
