Director of the CrossFit Games Dave Castro recently revealed via Instagram that the forthcoming events in Aromas were an opportunity to “remind the athletes, remind the community, remind everyone, what it’s about, where it started, where it came from, and that’s something special.” The inspiring commentary from Castro -- which came while he was performing errands around the fabled CrossFit Ranch -- immediately struck a chord of nostalgia and had us thinking about what possible repeat events could be in the pipeline for the 2020 Games.

There are plenty of options for Castro if he decides to dust off a past workout from the backyard barbecue days of Aromas or the brief excursion the individual athletes took back to the Ranch in 2016. There’s a decent likelihood that we will see elements of various past events woven into the fabric of entirely new tests -- similar to the Amanda .45 event in 2017 that beefed up a classic Games workout. Looking at each year in its entirety, there are a handful of events that stand out as potential repeats, and we broke down which ones stood the best chance among the bunch.
