Since its inception in 1997, SportsTravel magazine has served the sports-related event industry, recognizing those who organize and manage sporting events. CrossFit has been nominated every year since 2012, and won in 2013.
The ninth annual CrossFit Games are in the running with the 2016 Winter X Games, 2016 NBA Finals, U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials and many more major sporting events.
Like few other sports, the CrossFit Games are supported by a global community. Seven hundred fifty CrossFit enthusiasts from around the globe traveled to Carson, California, to volunteer their time. Volunteers moved barbells, stacked weights, built Rogue rigs and performed countless other tasks to ensure the competition ran smoothly.
The 2015 Reebok CrossFit Games featured hundreds of athletes, multiple venues, never-before-seen equipment (paddleboards, hurdles, 203 / 124 lb. kettlebells, pegboards), never-before-performed events, and all of it spanned multiple days with live webcasts, broadcasts and real-time reporting in print and on social media platforms.
The documentary “Fittest on Earth” tells the story of the 2015 Reebok CrossFit Games, a test so challenging and compelling that the documentary has gained popularity on Netflix and become #1 on iTunes.
It’s an honor for our young sport to be nominated for these awards for the fourth consecutive year. With the X Games and other longstanding sports in the same division, it will take the support of our community to push us to the top.
