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.https://games.crossfit.com/announcement/12035/games
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?
