The CrossFit Games leaders jersey–white with stark red print–is a hallmark of the sport and solely exclusive to the men and women that end up on top of the podium. The tradition started way back when the Games took place at Dave Castro’s family ranch.

However, there’s one group that wears an almost identical uniform: the medical staff. 

Of course, the priority of this team (comprised of doctors, EMTs, firefighters and fire chiefs, and flight medics) is to keep athletes safe on and off the competition floor. While the event takes place, the members stand guard within an arm’s reach to monitor and be available should anyone (athletes, volunteers, or spectators) require assistance.
