The 2020 CrossFit Open National Champions

ByCrossFitJanuary 6, 2020

The 2020 CrossFit Open national champions are announced. Across the world, 239 individuals have won the right and will receive invitations to represent their country at the 2020 Reebok CrossFit Games in Madison, Wisconsin. This year, CrossFit crowns seven additional champions from countries new to the CrossFit Open, demonstrating the continued international growth of the world’s largest participatory sporting event.

Sara Sigmundsdottir of Iceland won her second consecutive Open, and Patrick Vellner became the first Canadian man to win the season opener. Both rallied following their surprising early exits from the 2019 Reebok CrossFit Games.  Three-time and defending CrossFit Games champion Tia-Clair Toomey finished sixth worldwide and remains the fittest woman in Australia. Mat Fraser is again the fittest in the United States and will look to improve on his second-place Open finish as he seeks his record-setting fifth title in August.

An impressive 115 individuals — 57 men and 58 women — are repeat champions, having previously earned their country’s national crown in the 2019 Open as well. Many female repeat champions in countries such as Malta, South Africa, Spain, and Hungary saw large improvements in their overall Open placement. On the men’s side, new national champions raised the bar in countries such as Afghanistan, Ecuador, Slovenia, Ireland, and Russia.

Congratulations to the following competitors. As of Jan. 6, 2020, they are officially national champions, the fittest athletes in their country. The 2020 Reebok CrossFit Games will be held the week of Wednesday, July 29, through Sunday, Aug. 2.
