What Is the CrossFit Open 2021?

To understand the CrossFit Open, we first need to understand the CrossFit games. They began in 2007 as a way for athletes to measure their skills and put these scores against each other. The results would show you where you stand as an athlete. Since it started, the usual traditional sports like track, field, gymnastics, weightlifting, and even decathlon were known in advance. With each New Year, new events keep getting added to the list to make it more than just a competition to see who is fast, but to also test the participants’ endurance.

The CrossFit open takes place around the world. Participants submit their best scores in the categories mentions, and they are able to see what the other athlete scored. With each New Year, the top athletes are allowed to proceed into the quarter-final, then the semifinals. The main aim of the CrossFit open is to get the fittest man and fittest woman on earth.
