The “CrossFit Games” have been held every summer since 2007 and have the goal to find the “Fittest on Earth”. It’s not only about who can lift the heaviest weight or run the fastest. To become one of the best athletes you have to be strong in high-intensity workouts, Olympic weightlifting, powerlifting, gymnastics, strongman, and other exercises like swimming, sprinting or distance running.
Since 2011 there is a new online qualification process to get to the CrossFit Games. This is called The Open. During The Open one workout is released a week for 5 weeks, athletes have 4 days to complete the workout in their affiliate with a qualified judge.
