2019 CF Games Day 1

Day 1 of the 2019 CrossFit Games is done! Today we saw the introduction of athlete cuts that we haven't had in previous years. Since the field is so large this year with the inclusion of National Champions, both the men and women were reduced to 75 athletes after the first event.

No surprise that Mat Fraser is already dominating by winning the first two events. The women's race is a little bit closer as the overall first place is Kari Pearce, with Tia-Clair Toomey winning the first event and a CrossFit Games rookie, Danielle Brandon winning the second.

if you didn't watch the events today, you can catch up on the CrossFit Games' YouTube channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRs1pHnES3QDdh43xbjOmzw
