AUGUST IS ON us and the summer season is coming to an end, but the fitness sport is just warming up. After a long wait, the 16th NOBULL CrossFit Games competition is almost here. The event promises to be one of the most accessible to fans in recent years, with multiple options for getting into action via livestream and broadcast.
The CrossFit Games will take place on Wednesday, August 3, in Madison, Wisconsin, in front of an in-person audience filled with functional fitness’s biggest fans. The Games will run for five days with events through Sunday, August 8. Along with the individual competition, in which the reigning champions in the men’s and women’s divisions, Justin Medeiros and Tia-Clair Toomey, try to retain their titles as the strongest Earth, the Games will hold events for teams, masters, teens and adaptive divisions. In total, athletes from 120 different countries will participate in the competition.
