What’s up with the programming at the Sanctional events?
Are events doing a good job of selecting and testing the athletes that are going to be moving on to the CrossFit Games?
Should HQ step in and create specific standards surrounding how they want the testing to run?
Now that we’ve seen a few of these Sanctionals – and Jon and I were at Wodapalooza in person soaking it all in and jostling for position to be able to see our athletes compete – it’s time to break down some initial thoughts on how these things are going.
Check out the full conversation with Jon, Luke & Todd to hear:
- How athletes will decide which Sanctionals to compete at – and how the variation in programming for events and quality of athletes will impact who qualifies for the CrossFit Games
- What we think the most common pitfalls are in the programming for high level competitions – and what the implications would be of HQ taking on some regulatory role in what the testing looks like
- How the “haves” and the “have nots” will react to the need to qualify and compete more regularly – and what this means for structuring a competitive season
