Let the Games (or at least the Open) begin.
The 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games season kicks off on February 22nd with the first Live Open Announcement. And CrossFit Games HQ has released the venues for all five live announcements for this year’s Open season.
Traditionally, Games Director Dave Castro announces each week’s workout on Thursdays at 5pm PST. Immediately after, top CrossFit Games athletes face off live on the CrossFit Games website to set a standard and pace for elite scores that week. According to the Games website, the athletes corresponding to each week will be announced at a later date.
