Brent Fikowski, Ben Smith and Dani Speegle Among Cuts on Day 2

With the new competition format Dave Castro released just a few short weeks before the 2019 CrossFit Games began, we knew the field would be cut drastically. Unfortunately for the 130+ athletes from both the men’s and women’s individual competitions, a few big names would be included with the daily cuts as the weekend progressed.

Below is a list of notable athletes who will not continue on to Day 3.


Brent Fikowski — 2019 finish – 23rd 2018 finish – 4th

Sean Sweeney — 2019 finish – 24th 2018 finish – 22nd
