2022 Dubai Fitness Championship Rosters Confirmed

Forty athletes (20 male and 20 female) will compete

The 2022 Dubai Fitness Championship (DFC) will be held on Dec. 2-4, 2022. It will be the 10th edition of the contest. The competition recently dropped CrossFit from its name as it is no longer an officially licensed CrossFit event, but that doesn’t mean it won’t feature some of CrossFit‘s top athletes competing for the high-stakes six-figure prize payout.

An online qualifier was held to determine invites for the 2022 DFC. All forty of the initial invitations offered were accepted, confirming the entire male athlete and female athlete rosters.
