Dave Castro and CrossFit gave Latin America a guaranteed spot at the 2018 CrossFit Games with the most recent changes to the Regional structure. During that announcement, Castro said that CrossFit is growing at a blazing pace in Brazil.
So it is no surprise that the live announcement for 18.1 will be held in the South American country. On February 22, CrossFit is headed to Sao Paulo, Brazil for the start of the 2018 CrossFit Games season.
Weeks 2, 3 and 4 are back in the United States while 18.5 is headed back overseas to Iceland. Here is the full Open announcement schedule.
18.1 (2/22): Sao Paulo, Brazil
18.2 (3/1): Gibsonia, PA at CrossFit R.A.W.
18.3 (3/8): Houston, TX at Skyline CrossFit
18.4 (3/15): Goodyear, AZ at CrossFit Fury
18.5 (3/22): Reykjavík, Iceland at CrossFit Reykjavik
Tickets will only be available to the public for the 18.1 in Brazil. Tickets for the rest of the Open announcements will not be sold to the public.
The athletes competing during the live announcements have yet to be announced. Could we see Brenda Castro back for another live announcement for 18.1? And for the final week it has to be the three ‘dottirs’, right?
