The CrossFit Games are the world’s premier test to find the Fittest on Earth. The 2019 season exemplified the global nature of this challenge and the community it represents more than any before, from the start of the worldwide Open to the final competition in Madison, Wisconsin.
Five hundred athletes participated in the 2019 CrossFit Games. The athletes represented 114 different countries around the world, stepping into the competition spotlight as local heroes and ambassadors. For one week, the CrossFit Games brought together a collision of cultures, ideas, celebration, fitness, and food.
Hundreds of thousands watched from Madison and afar as the competition field narrowed to the fittest few. This year’s events gave the athletes the opportunity to showcase many skills, from the artistry of a single Olympic lift to the surgical precision required of a sprint course. Many were brought to their knees. The best rose to the challenge.
In a season marked by change and new beginnings, this year’s CrossFit Games gave center stage to the celebration of a vibrant global community.
