We talked about how crazy May was going to be with five CrossFit Sanctionals™ taking place, and now we finally get to watch the action officially kick off.
On Friday, the Brazil CrossFit Championship gets underway along with the Down Under Championship. Both events run from May 17th until May 19th. The Brazil CrossFit Championship will take place at the Ibirapuera Gymnasium in São Paulo, Brazil, and the Down Under Championship is being held at the WIN Entertainment Centre in Wollongong, New South Wales, Australia.
Both events present the opportunity for one individual male, female, and one team to qualify for the 2019 CrossFit Games.
