The Crossfit Games is the final stage of a three-stage journey. First comes the “Open”  (which anyone can do out of a local box; results are submitted by video).  Top finishers from the Open then go onto compete in the “Regionals,” and the top finishers from the Regionals then go onto the Crossfit Games.

This year, the 2012 Reebok Crossfit Games will take place on July 13th-15th at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California, and as you can imagine, the Crossfit World now eagerly awaits to see who will take this year’s title, aka “the Fittest Man (and Woman) on Earth.”

Although Jason Auer doesn’t stand a chance, I wish they’d give him a wildcard, just for comic relief.
