Here it is - the day that we have all been waiting for!  18.1 will be announced today at 5pm. You can watch the announcement live or check out the website for a short video including movement standards.

The 2018 Open will kick off with the announcement of 18.1 at Ginasio Poliesportivo Dr. Antonio Leme Nunes Galvao (Morumbi Stadium) in São Paulo, Brazil. 2013 Games champion Sam Briggs will square off against 2017 seventh-place Games finisher Kristin Holte. Two local athletes will also compete.

Our good friends at WODwell will be in the house for the 5pm announcement and will be live streaming a throwdown between two UB athletes shortly thereafter at 5:45pm - you are invited to come on down to watch and cheer Bernardo P., Mike C., and Gill P. as they challenge each other in front of the cameras!

PLEASE BE AWARE that we will not be holding regular classes tomorrow (Friday) evening. From 5pm on we will be running heats of 18.1. Morning and noon classes will also be 18.1 however they will be run like regular classes. If you're not participating in the CrossFit Open or the House Cup, you can still participate in the Friday evening heats! Make sure you come early to put your name down and grab a judge.
