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:

[tweet url="https://twitter.com/CFthedavecastro/status/862328554872217600" hide_media="0" hide_thread="1"]

"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:

Friday


Event 1

1,200-m run

Women will use a 100-lb sandbag and 24 inch box

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!

Wodapalooza 2020 is officially a wrap. Let’s talk about what went down on the fourth and final day of competition and who’s walking away with the CrossFit Games invites. The Elite individuals and teams competed two events on the Sunday. The first event, ‘Down-Up,’ put athletes through a brutal couplet of heavy deadlifts and bar-facing burpees. The second and final event of the day, ‘Celebrate Life,’ was a chipper that required high-power output and sound strategy.
