21.1 Live Announcement
A staple of previous Opens was the "live announcement". Every week, crossfitters around the globe would tune in at 5pm pacific time to get the live official reveal of the workout. Increasing the draw was the fact that two (or more) top crossfit athletes would be taking on the workout within 15-20 minutes of hearing what it was!
These announcements were super exciting and I'm really happy that they have re-started them for the 2021 Open! The very first one (21.1) is being released on Thursday March 11 (i.e. two days from now) at 5pm... and it features two outstanding athletes - Kari Pearce and Kristi Eramo.
These women will go head to head on whatever comes down the pipe from Dave Castro and the Open programming team. It may not be representative of what most of us will encounter in the workout as these athletes are incredibly talented... however it will be fun to watch them take it on!
Here's a video covering some more details about the athletes and the upcoming live announcement (which you can view by going to the CrossFit Games youtube channel. Tune in before 5 to make sure you get all the details!
Time to get excited team!!
