How to Watch the Open Announcement

Tune in to the first Open announcement at 8pm Thursday evening at

Dave Castro, director of the CrossFit Games, will announce the workout and then some of the top athletes will perform the workout. Here is the lineup for Week 1:

Castro will announce Open Workout 17.1 from Reebok CrossFit Louvre in Paris, France. Shortly after the announcement, we'll throw it to an entirely different country as Patrick Vellner and Brent Fikowski—2016’s third- and fourth-fittest men on Earth, respectively—kick off the 2017 Games season from Reebok CrossFit Yul, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. We'll also get to watch 2013 Games champion Samantha Briggs and 2016 Games 12th-place finisher Kristin Holte throw down on 17.1 in Paris.

For us, we are taking it fairly easy since our first Open workout will be Friday. Make sure you take care of yourself with proper nutrition, rest, and work on mobility before Friday!
