The last workout of the 2020 CrossFit Open will be announced on Thursday at 5pm Pacific Time.

On the Open so far and what awaits athletes on 20.5, Dave Castro said:

“Good four weeks but nothing is gonna compare to week 5. Nothing. None of the other tests we’ve ever done.”

The last live announcement will be streamed live from Reebok CrossFit One, with a pre-show scheduled 25 minutes before the main event (4:35pm PST or 7:35pm EST).

Games podium athletes Annie Thorisdottir and Pat Vellner will go head to head on the live announcement. The second urged fans to “Tune in as we determine who is the fittest red head on earth!!!”

The livestream will be hosted on Reebok’s website.


The French Throwdown will also live stream the last 2020 Open announcement. French National Champion Willy Georges will face off against American athlete Streat Hoerner, who currently sits 18th in the Open worldwide leaderboard.

Both are two-times CrossFit Games athletes with ample experience under their belts. Hoerner is a three-times Regionals athlete and finished the 2019 Open ranked 14th worldwide, whilst Georges is a three-times National Champion, 33rd at the 2019 Open and 21st at the Games.

Just like with 20.1, the announcement will be streamed on the French Throwdown’s YouTube and Facebook channels.
