CROSSFIT GAMES UPDATE: HOW DID I MISS THIS?!
Folks, I owe you all a major apology. As I have tried to keep you all up to date on the changes to the games, including qualification processes, I have overlooked a MAJOR detail. Let's fix this now because this is massive.
As has been previously reported, the Games primary feeder will indeed be the CrossFit Open. As previously reported, there will in fact be the fittest man woman and team from each country invited to the Games based on their Open finish.
BUT THAT'S NOT ALL! Reading through Tommy Marquez's recent article updating us on the open he reports that the open will not only qualify the fittest in every country, but also THE TOP 20 FINISHERS OF THE OPEN. HOLY GUACAMOLE BATMAN!! I don't know how I missed this I really don't but Tommy used to run the update show and has got to be the best source in the world for CrossFit Games insider info, I trust it, and I am PUMPED!
This is so massive, and makes the Open SO interesting. I mean, the open was always interesting, but now there are a decent number of spots on the line. There are SO MANY people doing the open every year, so to just take the top 20 is CRAZY, in the best way. Oh man, I am hyped up right now. As a fan, I will be watching the leaderboard like a hawk to determine who might make it and who might not.
Golly gee, what a rush!
