Part of the beauty of the sport of CrossFit is its diversity and global representation, as it’s the largest participatory sporting event in the world. This year, 22 countries will be represented across the CrossFit Games field. 

  • United States: 31
  • Canada: 10
  • Australia: 6
  • Iceland: 4
  • Russia: 4
  • Finland: 3
  • Argentina: 2
  • Serbia: 2
  • Ireland: 2
  • Brazil: 2
  • South Africa: 2
  • Norway: 2
  • Switzerland: 1
  • Denmark: 1
  • Latvia: 1
  • Greece: 1
  • United Kingdom: 1
  • Sweden: 1
  • Poland: 1
  • New Zealand: 1
  • Hungary: 1
  • South Korea: 1

One big thing: With almost half of semifinal events being held in North America (four of ten), it’s no surprise that the United States and Canada have the most representation of athletes, combining for 51% of the field. However, the United States’ hold on the roster is shrinking (38.7%) as Canadians (12.5%) continue to excel in competitions.
