Two more invites have been handed out for the upcoming CrossFit Filthy 150. Sam Briggs and James Newbury were announced over the weekend as two more CrossFit Games veterans to receive the wildcard invites.
Briggs and Newbury join Kristin Holte and Dan Bailey to receive invites to compete at the first Sanctional of the 2020 season. CrossFit Filthy 150 has six individual men, six individual women and four team wildcard invites to fill out its Sanctional field.
So far, two men and women have received an invite. No team wildcard invites have been announced yet.

On top of that, Briggs was also crowned the U.K. National Champion while finishing 20th overall in the worldwide Open leaderboard. Briggs finished 18th at the 2019 CrossFit Games.
