Live From The 2017 CrossFit™ Games

CrossFit™, one of the fastest-growing sports in America, kicked off the CrossFit™ Games this week in Madison, Wisconsin at the Alliant Energy Center, and we were there Thursday to get a front row seat for all of the action.

This four-day competition tests some of the world’s best CrossFit™ athletes, as the top 40 men, 40 women, 40 teams, 80 teenagers, and 240 masters competitors are all together in one city.

At the CrossFit™ Games, the athletes engage in a series of challenges that are only revealed to the competitors immediately before they are about to start. The combination of highly trained athletes and unknown events makes for interesting and explosive competitions.

Throughout the week, these unknown events will range from endurance competitions like running, biking, and even swimming to strength competitions like pull-ups, snatches, and dumbbell presses. This wide variety of high-intensity events truly tests the competitors’ fitness levels to find the best of the best.

The athletes at the games will be scored according to how they place in each event relative to their peers. Whoever consistently places the highest in the most events will come away the winner at the end of the weekend.

As the CrossFit™ community continues to grow, so does Eastbay’s interest in the sport. Check out our attached photo slideshow for some exclusive photos from the event!
