So How Many People Participated in the 2019 CrossFit Open?
The ninth year of the CrossFit Open wrapped-up last week. The verification process is well underway, but while we wait for the final results to be tallied, here’s a breakdown of who participated in the 2019 CrossFit Open.
Registrations: Athletes can technically still register until the last day of the Open. In fact, 1240 athletes registered after the close of 19.1 through the close of 19.5.
- Total Male Sign Ups: 204,853
- Total Female Sign Ups: 153,793
- Total Sign Ups: 358,646
Participation: Because athletes can switch between Rx and scaled from week to week, it makes tabulating absolute participation a little more challenging.
- Total athletes submitting 1+ scores: 341,501
This number is unbelievably high; that amounts to 95% of registered athletes logging at least one workout. Naturally, far fewer completed all five weeks Rx.
- Total males submitting 5 Rx scores: 94,716
- Total females submitting 5 Rx scores: 49,560
- Total: 144,276
Week by week Open participation breakdown.
- Week 1’s participation was highest with 327,413 athletes logging scores. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise as 19.1 included rowing and wall balls, two very inclusive movements.
- It shouldn’t come as a surprise that 19.5 was the least popular in terms of participation, both because it’s the final workout and because of the 105 thrusters: 255,765 athletes logged a score
- The fewest percentage of athletes chose to do 19.2 Rx: 74.4 % for men and 53.20% fewer than 19.5’s couplet of thrusters and chest-to-bar. Bear in mind, these percentages are based off number of athletes who completed that workout not of total registrants.
- An unbelievable 91.4% of male athletes completed 19.1 Rx.
