The open games registration starts February 1st. For those not aware, Crossfit has 1 competition WOD per week for 6 weeks as the preliminaries to qualify for sectionals, then the winners move on to the Crossfit Games in July. Anyone can compete for $10. Verification is as simple as submitting a video with someone verifying your reps, or performing the workout at a Crossfit affiliate with a judge, which then will be submitted by the affiliate management.
Are you planning on competing?
I did it last year, just to get a general idea of where I stand among the rest of the world. Actually finished around #7,500 out of 14,000 entrants. Better than I expected..lol
