Dates confirmed for the 2020 CrossFit Games

The latest announcement on the CrossFit Games website has the following information:

The live-streamed online competition will begin on Friday, September 18, and last 2-3 days, while the televised in-person finals will be held in Northern California the week of October 19-25.

The online format was announced a couple days before. Essentially it is an online event with the top 30 female and male invitees to the Games and the top 5 of that online event are then invited to an in-person event in Northern California. This sounds a lot like the Rogue Invitational online event format with an actual in-person competition at the end. There will also be a judge from the CrossFit seminar staff at each place of each competitor during the online events.

What do you think? Is this a good or a bad change? Are you looking forward to the events?

Eric Roza purchased 100% of CrossFit

The contract to sell CrossFit to Eric Roza is signed. He and Berkshire Partners, a Boston-based investment firm, completed the transaction on July 24th, 2020. Here is the official announcement on Twitter:

To help reading the announcement I converted the images to text:

The Hard Work of CrossFit…

At CrossFit, every day we learn the value of hard work, resilience, and shared sacrifice towards a common goal.

Following a month of hard work by several dozen individuals on our respective deal teams, I’m delighted to report we have signed the final contract to purchase 100% of CrossFit from Greg Glassman. I will be joined in acquiring CrossFit by Berkshire Partners, a Boston-based investment firm, and we will be putting 1% of the stock into a non-voting trust for Maggie Glassman and their kids. We expect to close the transaction in the next few weeks, following the receipt of final government approval. Now the real work begins!

I see a nearly boundless opportunity for CrossFit to become the world’s leading platform for Health, Happiness and Performance. As we work towards this amazing long-term opportunity, today | want to focus on the hard work of addressing our immediate challenges.

To this end, my team and | have spoken directly with hundreds of folks, and we’ve
received and read emails and social posts from thousands of others across the global community over the past month. Thank you for your candor, well-wishes, great ideas, and tough love.

The consistent themes have been a profound belief in the unparalleled power of
CrossFit to change lives; a mandate that CrossFit provide a culture of inclusion that works tirelessly to eliminate racism, sexism, and bias; and a recognition that success in tackling these challenges will require us all to come together as part of the solution.

Through the dialogue, the team and I have become acutely aware of the alienation and dissonance felt by a number of current, former, and potential members of our community. I’ve heard your message loud and clear: Change is needed and we must think and act out of the box to reach those who don’t feel welcomed by CrossFit.

At the same time, COVID-19, has created unprecedented challenges in our community. Nearly 100,000 people around the world make their livelihood through CrossFit, supporting several million others for whom CrossFit is the best hour of the day. We must think and act in the box to help our Affiliates survive and thrive through a resurgent global pandemic with devastating social, economic, and health consequences of indeterminate duration and severity.

Finally, we are working hard to deliver a safe and global CrossFit Games in mid-September. We are partnering closely with our Athletes, their agents and managers, and local and federal agencies to deliver the world’s greatest test of fitness to living rooms and mobile screens around the world in spite of the challenges presented by the pandemic.

I will be holding a Community Town Hall in mid-August to update you with specifics on our work on Culture, Inclusion, Affiliate Support, and the 2020 Games.

Thank you for the warm welcome and for your partnership in the hard work ahead.

CrossFit has a new owner and CEO

This is huge news for CrossFit and the sport: CrossFit will be sold to Eric Roza and he will also step in as CEO for the company. Here is a quote from his official statement:

Since I discovered CrossFit 10 years ago, it has changed my life, and I am deeply honored to have the opportunity to lead CrossFit through its next chapter as CEO and owner, following the closing next month.

The official post can be read on the CrossFit homepage and Eric Roza’s instagram:

Dear CrossFit community, Since I discovered CrossFit 10 years ago, it has changed my life, and I am deeply honored to have the opportunity to lead CrossFit through its next chapter as CEO and owner, following the closing next month. As a box owner and athlete, I’ve experienced CrossFit’s transformative power and the shared bond it creates between people of different races, genders, ages, ethnicities, incomes, educations and physical abilities. That magic, created by our affiliate owners, coaches, and athletes in 158 countries around the world, is real. And I believe it makes the world a better place. In the past weeks, divisive statements and allegations have left many members of our community struggling to reconcile our transformative experiences in the local box with what we’ve been reading online. My view is simple: Racism and sexism are abhorrent and will not be tolerated in CrossFit. We open our arms to everyone, and I will be working hard to rebuild bridges with those whose trust we have lost. I come to you with deep humility and the realization that we have hard work to do. I am committed to listening, I am committed to learning, and I am committed to leading positive change. Most of all, I am committed to CrossFit and to you, as a member of our community. If you are committed to the future of CrossFit and have ideas, I want to hear from you. And if you loved CrossFit, and we lost you along the way, I want to regain your trust and partnership. Please reach out to me at eric@crossfit.com. Eric Roza #committedtocrossfit
