The 2018 CrossFit Games "world finals" is upon us this week and it should be an exciting time to watch it all go down in Madison, WI. For all the details on how to view the week's events click here to see BarBend's full detail of watching options.
There's sure to be some awesome action from the Teams, Masters, and Teens categories as some of the events have already been released - and several look like a helluva lotta fun to watch. The Individual Men's competition may be the closest we've ever experienced to a "sure thing" (even more so than during the reign of Rich Froning) as two-time defending champion, Mat Fraser, seems to be in a universe of his own... BUT as the saying goes that's why they play the games. Anything can happen!
Most of us are probably most looking forward to the Individual Women's competition and watching the drama unfold in this super-competitive field of athletes. There are likely 5-8 women who are capable of winning the whole thing, and seeing the leaderboard shift and the points race get tight as the final Sunday approaches will be a blast. Who's your pick to win (and who is your dark horse to make the podium)?
