WHAT’S ON: Play’s Pride Throwdown & 2021 CrossFit Open
PLAY EVENT: PRIDE THROWDOWN
On Saturday, we hosted our very own Pride Throwdown to celebrate the month of Mardi Gras with our wild and wonderful PLAY community.
The day of the fun and inclusive CrossFit Pairs Competition, followed by a legendary PLAY afterparty could not have been more successful!
We are so proud of how inclusive our community is and can’t wait to do it all again next year. #playpride2021
CrossFit Open 2021
The CrossFit Open is the largest participatory sporting event in the world, setting a record of more than 415,000 participants across 172 countries in 2018. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, this year’s open will be the most accessible yet, whereby participants are able to compete at their local gym or at home.
“The last year has been tough for everyone, so we want to kick off the 2021 season with a compelling and accessible Open that can meet the needs of every athlete in the world,” said Dave Castro, GM of Sport for CrossFit. “Whether you’re surrounded by people in your local gym, working out alone at home, or listening to friends cheer over Zoom, the Open will energize you and remind you why you are part of CrossFit.”
Our own Play CrossFit gym will be hosting about 150 athletes from beginner to Top 20 in the world for the first 2 stages of the qualifying process between March and May.
