Today marks day 1 of the SoCal CrossFit Regionals Competition where the top 48 men and women as well as the top 30 teams from the Open will complete 7 grueling events over the course of 3 days. For the second time since the inception of the Games, all athletes across all regions will complete the same 7 workouts to have a true worldwide comparison. Each athlete will have a Level 1 judge watching every rep to ensure proper movement standards are completed. And, barring disqualifications or failure to complete minimum work requirements, there will be no daily cuts. At the end of day 3, only the top 3 men, women and teams per region will advance to compete in the 2013 CrossFit Games at the Home Depot Center July 22-28.
Shown below are the Individual and Team Events listed by day. While tickets are no longer available online, you can still head down to the Del Mar Arena located at 2260 Jimmy Durante Blvd, Del Mar 92014 and purchase tickets at the door. There’s also a $10 daily parking fee. I believe there’s a group of Intrepids who are heading down to watch Saturday’s events.
As you can see, the athletes have their work cut out for them. Watching these top notch athletes give it their all for a top spot will be inspiring. The roar from the crowds cheering each athlete down to the last rep is the intoxicating CrossFit camaraderie that we love and it is sure to be experienced at Regionals. If you weren’t lucky enough to grab Games tickets on May 13 (They sold out in 15 minutes!), I highly recommend going to Regionals. Good luck competitors! We look forward to a great show!
