How the Regionals work are two regions combine and the top Open athletes compete at one of 9 Regionals. The toughest, strongest athletes on earth then give it their all to secure their place at the grand event, the Reebok CrossFit Games.
Then the top 5 athletes from North America, Europe and Australasia, top 4 from Meridian and top 1 from Latin America divisions earn a qualifying spot at the CrossFit Games. Their are only 40 men, 40 women, 40 teams, 80 teenagers, and 240 masters who will secure a spot at the Games.
Who will make it, who will not?
