The total prize purse for the 2018 CrossFit Games has increased by another $200,000 to $2.6 million! The individual champion will now take home $300,000. Last year it was $285,000. The top 20 individuals still earn prize money.

The biggest change to the prize structure is that the Masters 35-39 age division gets a bigger payout compared to the other Masters divisions. First place in the 35-39 division will win $25,000.

For the teams, the top prize stays at $100,000, but with only 4 athletes on the team each member will receive $25,000. That’s considerable increase over the $16,667 per athlete with a 6-member team.
