First, there are three Regional competitions starting on Friday morning through Sunday: Europe, East (Albany NY) and South.
Next weekend, there will be three more, then three more after that until all nine Regional competitions are complete.
Regionals started in 2009 as a way to separate the wheat from the chaff.
How many athletes are competing?
Each Regional is made up of the top 40 men, women and teams. Only one athlete from the Latin America Regional and four athletes from the Meridian Regional will advance to the CrossFit Games. (Madison Wisconsin) In all other Regions, the top five advance for a total of 40 athletes in each division.
Gotcha, so how do I watch?
Everything will be streamed live on Facebook, but it’s a lot easier to just go to the CrossFit Games website and select the regional you want to watch from there. You can find everything you need here.
