The 2019 CrossFit Games is shaping up to be quite the event and we’re already on day 3 (Time flies when you’re having fun).
But unfortunately, that means many athletes will be sent home after the standard elimination process, and their dreams of battling for the title of “World’s Fittest” this year are over just like that…
After a brutal sprint event, only a few (10) competitors in the women’s division could make it into the final. But a few really big names were surprisingly eliminated which cut the field in half from 20 athletes down to just 10!

I don’t really know what to say… congratulations to the women that made the cut, but I don’t believe we have had enough tests to be able to make a top 10 cut just yet. I will leave it at that for now Not sure what’s next, but THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to everyone out there supporting me! It means the world ❤️ 📷 @bownmedia
The sprint happened in groups of 5 in a quick down and back format.
The quarterfinal included many competitors but the field was cut down to the following athletes who participated in the semi-final before 5 more were eliminated.
