The CrossFit Games start this week! The action begins Wednesday at Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin, and will go all the way through the weekend. Before we get to how to watch, we are doing a “Games Pick ‘em” here at the gym. You can find the ballots ($5 each) under the whiteboard. Predict the top five males, females and teams and the closest guesses will collect the money! It’s a cool way to make the Games that much more interesting…..by having the chance to win a few bucks! Pick up the ballot today, and return by Wednesday 9 am, because the Games start that morning.
Here is how you can watch.
CrossFit’s partnerships with Facebook and CBS Sports will allow fans worldwide to watch the competition online for free. Additionally, the CBS Television Network will air a one-hour live look into the competition on Saturday, Aug. 4, at 1 p.m. ET, and on Sunday, Aug. 5, at 12 p.m. ET.
