Athletes will have four days to complete the workout(s), and submit their score. Since 2012 the Open has stuck to this 5 week format, after spanning 7 weeks in 2011.
During that time there has been as many as six scored events during the five weeks, with the 2015 and in 2018 Open having had two scored events for a single week of competition.
New for 2019, the CrossFit Games Open will be the single largest qualifier of athletes to the 2019 Reebok CrossFit Games. The top 20 men, 20 women worldwide and the fittest male and female in each country will receive an invite to the Games in Madison.
