The CrossFit Games
The CrossFit Games are the world’s premier test to find the Fittest on Earth. In order to find the fittest, CrossFit has to cast a wide net. The three-stage CrossFit Games season acts as a funnel, starting with the all-inclusive online Open, advancing to the selective live regionals, and concluding with an elite few on a world stage at the CrossFit Games.
The 2016 Reebok CrossFit Games Central Regional features the fittest men, women, and teams from the North Central and Central East of the United States. 43,000 athletes from these two regions entered the Open, but only the top-40 men, 40 women, and 30 6-person teams were invited to compete at the Central Regional (May 27-29) at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.
