Director of the CrossFit Games Dave Castro made a few big announcements at tonight’s Athlete Ceremony in the Coliseum at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin. After 553 athletes walked across the floor waving their countries’ flags, Castro took the stage.
His first announcement told the details of one of Saturday’s events.
“Typically, we do our swim events early on in the week,” he said. “This year, we did a row on Day 1. … We’re doing the swim event for everybody on Saturday.”
Castro then reintroduced the team rescue sled from the 2015 Games to the teams.
The 2018 swim events are as follows:
MADISON TRIPLUS (INDIVIDUALS)
Swim 500 meters
Paddle 1,000 meters
Run 2,000 meters
Athletes will begin on the Lake Monona shoreline, enter the water and swim a 500-meter course, concluding back on land. They will then grab a paddleboard and paddle a 1,000-meter course. Finally, the athletes will exit the water and run 2,000 meters to the AEC, where they will cross the finish line.
Time cap: 40 minutes
