If you’re a fan of CrossFit, chances are you’ve heard of the ‘CrossFit Games’ – a showcase of the fittest individuals on the planet. With CrossFit becoming a word synonymous with fitness and working out over recent years, it’s no surprise that it has also grown in popularity, with spectators and fans all over the world tuning into live and delayed broadcasting.
For Aussie fans, watching the events of the day has proved a tough challenge in itself, with most of us having to settle for highlights and replays. However, a shake up in the lead up to the 2019 Games looks set to see more options for viewers to tune into.
To ensure you don’t miss a second of the action, read on to find out where you’ll be able to watch the 2019 CrossFit Games.
What are the CrossFit Games?
The CrossFit Games is essentially a series of grueling physical tests, such as rope climbs, deadlifts, Olympic lifts and a variety of other exercises, with competitors aiming to be crowned the Fittest on Earth. Started back in 2007, the CrossFit Games has grown along with the workout regime to become a known event around the world.
Qualifying stages are held in Sanctionals, along with what’s known as The Open, where the successful competitors are then invited to the CrossFit Games.
The 2019 CrossFit Games are set to be held in Madison, Wisconsin, with the competition running from Monday, July 29 to Sunday, August 4.
How can I watch the CrossFit Games?
Previous years of the CrossFit Games have seen limited options for viewers, with broadcasting rights generally staying within the CrossFit community. However, the 2019 Games look to expand, meaning fans have a number of options to catch all the action from, whether you’re looking to get it live or via stream.
Currently, Aussie fitness fans can watch via the official CrossFit YouTube channel, or the official CrossFit Games website, with the site also offering a timeline of events, leaderboards and competitors.
There is currently no news if you have to sign up or pay for coverage, although you will have to sign up to an account to access the full extent of the official CrossFit Games website.
