The 2014 Crossfit Open competition has ended and we’re one step closer to seeing who will make it to the 2014 Reebok Crossfit Games. “The Open” is just as it sounds, an open event where everyone in the world is free to compete in five workouts over the span of five weeks. The scores are posted in real time and the top competitors are ranked both worldwide and by region.
Competitors will be ranked both worldwide and by region. The fittest 48 men, 48 women, and 30 teams from each region will earn invitations to one of 17 Regionals. This is the first chance athletes will have in 2014 to establish their international standings.
After the Open, the fittest from each of 17 regions around the world move on to the next phase of the season—Regionals. Athletes and spectators will gather in masses to watch CrossFit competition in a live format. Under the critical eye of Level 1 judges and in front of hundreds of cheering spectators, each region’s best athletes will battle for a few precious Games-qualifying spots. – via games.crossfit.com
