How We’re Covering the CrossFit Open this Year
Anyone who’s done the Open for more than bragging rights knows how stressful the next five weeks can be. The stakes couldn’t be higher this year.
To bring you closer to the top athletes competing for a spot at the 2019 CrossFit Games, we’re doing something a little different this year.
Get to it already.
Our Sr. Games Analyst, Tommy Marquez, and ArmenHammer will be following Noah Ohlsen, Patrick Vellner and Dani Speegle over the next five weeks, bringing you in-depth coverage of these three athletes week by week.
So glad you asked.
In addition to end-to-end written coverage, we’ve got two Facebook/YouTube shows in the lineup to keep you updated:
Wednesday — “On the Minute” with ArmenHammer and yours truly, recapping the previous week’s Open performances and a preview of the week ahead. Airs live on Facebook at 5:00 PM PT/8:00 PM ET.
Thursday — Tommy Marquez’s “Leaderboard Spotlight” show where he dives into the race to the top 20. We’re executing this in partnership with Inside Elite Fitness. The first episode airs tomorrow at 12:00 PM PT/3:00 PM ET. But the remaining episodes will be published on Thursdays at the same time.
And lastly, we’d love to hear from you what kind of stories you’d like to see covered from our team. You can share your ideas in this survey.
That’s it for now folks.
3, 2, 1…Go.
