The 2020 Reebok CrossFit® Games
The biggest and most prestigious competition within functional fitness – The 2020 Reebok CrossFit® Games – is just around the corner. Barebells proudly presents ambassadors Haley Adams and Brooke Haas as two of the elite names on the leaderboard of this years’ competition, in the fight of becoming the Fittest Woman on Earth™.
CrossFit® HQ earlier announced a change to the format of the 2020 Reebok CrossFit® Games. This year, the event is separated into two stages: the first stage is an online competition that takes place in the athletes’ home countries (at their local CrossFit® box), to which 30 men and 30 women are already qualified. From the online competition, the top five men and top five women will advance to the in-person finals in California, where the Fittest Man and Fittest Woman on Earth™ will then be crowned.
The online competition of the 2020 Reebok CrossFit® Games will take place between the 18th – 19th of September. Find out more here: https://games.crossfit.com/games
