One big thing: Even though the elite individual winner was reduced from $100,000 to $75,000, nearly every other division received a substantial payout increase.
- Elite team payouts increased by $44,000 total, at least doubling the payouts of 3rd through 5th.
- Masters divisions winners doubled from $1,000 to $2,000.
- There will not be a $1,000 payout for an individual event win
The big picture: In addition to the increased payouts, Wodapalooza has introduced several changes to its format this season as well as their first-ever title sponsorship with TYR Sport.
- The programming collective returns, a cross-coaching collaboration between the best programming minds in CrossFit to put together the events for the finals.
- They changed the format to allow elites to compete as both individuals and teams. Individuals will compete on the first two days, followed by the teams on days 3 and 4.
