We’re more than halfway through the 2020 CrossFit Open and only two workout announcements remain.
This Thursday night, CrossFit Open Workout 20.4 will go live featuring three Reebok CrossFit Games athletes:
- Ben Smith
- Jason Carroll
- Sean Sweeney
The typical format for Open workout announcements is to have two athletes battle it out live, so this week will be extra exciting with three big named Games competitors squaring off.

The Athlete Match-Up
This week we get to see not two, but three CrossFit Games veterans go at it. Here’s what Thursday’s competition looks like:
Smith won the Reebok CrossFit Games in 2015 and has been to the Games every year since 2009. He most recently earned a Wild Card invite to the 2019 Reebok CrossFit Games, and finished 28th overall. He has earned a podium spot four times in his career.
Smith will bring all kinds of experience to this workout announcement, and given his impressive comeback and performance at this summer’s Games, we’re expecting big things this 2020 Open. He currently sits at 35 on the 2020 Open leaderboard.
Sweeney has appeared in three Reebok CrossFit Games, with his best finish coming in 2018 where he finished in 22nd place overall. This past year at the Games, he finished 24th overall.
Sweeney is currently sitting in 12th place on the 2020 Open leaderboard, and is fresh-off his best Open performance yet.
Carroll has appeared at the Reebok CrossFit Games in 2017 and 2019, and this past summer finished in 39th place overall. Carroll has to make some moves during this Open workout and the next one if he wants to qualify through it.
We’re expecting a big performance out of him, and what better way to go out strong against two veterans!
With only two workouts remaining, we’re incredibly curious to see what CrossFit Open Workout 20.4 will entail. What are your predictions for 20.4?
