Exciting news that will enhance the overall WZA experience was announced via a joint press release between both CrossFit and Wodapalooza:
“CrossFit, Inc. today announced that Wodapalooza, a global fitness festival and inclusive competition, is joining the roster as the 7th event to be sanctioned by CrossFit. In 2019, Wodapalooza’s top male and female individual competitors, as well as the top four-person team, will qualify to the Reebok CrossFit Games in Madison, Wisconsin. The much-anticipated announcement recognizes Wodapalooza’s history as a popular, diverse, and community-driven festival…”
The Wodapalooza CrossFit competition is open to all athletes and kicks off this week with their online challenge and qualifier. As with all CrossFit-sanctioned events in the 2019 Games season, should the top male or female athlete at Wodapalooza qualify for the CrossFit Games by other means, then the number two podium finisher will receive a Games invitation. Athletes can qualify for the 2019 CrossFit Games via four paths: (1) winning their country’s national championship as determined by the worldwide CrossFit Open; (2) taking first place at a CrossFit-sanctioned event; (3) placing within the top 20 finishers in the 2019 CrossFit Open; (4) or participating as one of four at-large athletes selected by CrossFit Inc.
