Are These The Only Six Events Of The 2017 CrossFit Games Regionals?
We've seen Dave Castro announced six events for the 2017 CrossFit Games Regionals and based on trends from the last four years of Regionals, we expected there to be seven events. It seems like we may have only six events though. Dave Castro has just posted this on Twitter:



"Going to be fun..." doesn't really tell us whether this is it or not, but it certainly sounds like Castro is putting a button on the individual Regional events. Here are all six:

So are these the only 6 events individuals will be taking on at Regionals? This would be the first time since 2012 that Regionals had six events as 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 each had seven events. It will also be the first Regionals since 2011 to not include a max weightlifting event and the first since 2012 which doesn't have a set of two events which take place back-to-back with limited rest.

The biggest change would be that this is the first ever CrossFit sanctioned event which has absolutely no barbells in any events. The barbell is the single most popular tool for CrossFitters worldwide to develop fitness through heavy lifting, barbell cycling, or conditioning. 

What do you think? Will this set of Regionals events select for the fittest to make it through to the Games? Do these events tell us anything about what to expect from the Games? Sound off below!
