Information on the 2012 CrossFit Games:
The CrossFit Games are the world’s premier test to find the Fittest on Earth™. This year, defending champs Rich Froning Jr. from Cookeville, Tenn., and Annie Thorisdottir from Kopavogur, Iceland will seek the first-ever repeat titles at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., on July 13-15. They will have incredible competition, as this will be the biggest and best year by far.
The 2012 season starts on February 22 with the five-week, five-workout CrossFit Games Open. Everyone in the world is invited to participate to see how they stack up. Tens of thousands of athletes from every continent will visit affiliates and submit videos in the quest to prove their fitness.
The top 60 men and women from each region will be invited to compete at the Regionals from April 27 to May 27. There are also divisions for Masters and Teams. Then, only the very best from each region qualify for the 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games.
Fitness means being ready for the unknown and unknowable, so all the workouts change every year. These changes remain a surprise and are not announced until just before each event starts. Train as hard as you can, get as fit as possible, and be ready for anything!
We’re proud to announce the 2012 version of the Games site will launch soon. It’s been redesigned to handle the new scope of the competition, with better organization of all our coverage, plus dramatically improved competition information and support.
