CrossFit Games veteran Saxon Panchik is the latest athlete to confirm that they will be competing in the Brazil CrossFit Championship (BCC). Panchik joins Lucas Parker, Elijah Muhammad, Sean Sweeney and Jacob Heppner.

Panchik and Heppner may have already qualified for the CrossFit Games prior to the BCC. Panchik sits in 27th worldwide while Heppner is in 6th. Both are currently in a qualifying spot based on the “Top 20” qualifying method.

Sweeney has already secured his trip to the 2019 CrossFit Games after winning the Fittest in Cape Town Sanctional last month.

Other notable top qualifiers who have been invited to the BCC are Alexandre Caron, Will Moorad, John Coltey and Z.A. Anderson. The BCC is May 17-19 in Sao Paolo, Brazil, at the Ibirapuera Gymnasium. Tickets for the 3-day event are still available and can be purchased here.
