The CrossFit Games revealed that General Manager of Sport, Dave Castro, will no longer be hosting the live Open announcements. It’s unclear who will replace Castro for the 2022 season and beyond. 

One big thing: “I was kind of forced out of doing announcements,” Castro said in reference to no longer hosting the live Open announcements in 2019 and 2020, a position he held since the first-ever live Open announcement of 13.1.

  • Castro returned to helm the live roll outs for the 2021 Open, preferring to exit on his own terms: “The truth is I was ready to be done then. I was ready to stop doing  announcements, but I didn’t get to go out on my own terms.” 
  • During the 2019 and 2020 seasons, the announcements were expanded globally and ran by affiliates and Sanctional events, broadcasting in multiple languages. 

Save the date: The 2022 CrossFit Open kicks off Thursday, February 24, 2022.
