The first live Open announcement of the 2023 season is coming in hot today on the official CrossFit YouTube channel.

The details: The live Open announcement will kick off the 2023 CrossFit Games season and the world’s largest participatory sporting event. The announcements started in the 2013 season and grew in size and popularity through 2018. CrossFit elected not to host live Open announcements during the 2019 and 2020 seasons, but returned to host them in 2021.

  • 23.1 will be presented by GOWOD and will take place in Madrid, Spain.
  • The 2022 Third Fittest Woman on Earth, Laura Horvath will take on her friend (and Wodapalooza teammate) Gabi Migala. On the men’s side, two Games veterans, Bjorgvin Karl Gudmundsson will take on Lazar Dukic.
  • The 23.2 announcement will take place on February 23 at CrossFit Bison in New Jersey and will feature a head-to-head battle between Roman Khrennikov and Patrick Vellner.

How to watch: Tune in to the CrossFit Games website or CrossFit YouTube channel for the live 23.1 announcement on Thursday, February 16 at 12 PM PT. 

And as always, the Morning Chalk Up will provide workout strategy guides and full leaderboard coverage and analysis.
