The team competition is slated to take place from Thursday August 3 through Sunday August 6. There will be two days of competition for all the teams, then a cut down to 30. There will be an additional day of competition for those 30 teams, then a final cut down to 20. The top 20 teams will then finish the competition on Sunday.
There is a big vacancy in the team division without CrossFit Mayhem Freedom, however, the women from their 2022 Champion team are back, this time with CrossFit East Nashville PRVN. They are the headliners and come in as the favorites to win this year:
The Top Ten
|1||CrossFit East Nashville PRVN|
|3||No Shortcuts CrossFit|
|4||CrossFit Oslo Navy Blue|
|5||CrossFit Franco’s Misfits|
|6||CrossFit Mayhem Independence|
|8||CrossFit Torian Mayhem|
|9||CrossFit Move Fast Lift Heavy 247|
|10||CrossFit CLT the Grit Haus|
CrossFit Invictus is gunning for the top spot, I think they’ll get close but come up just short.
There’s a new challenger in Europe with the No ShortCuts team. I expect a close battle between the teams listed 3rd through 5th on this list for the final podium spot.
Both Mayhem teams listed here are teams I feel will do better at the Games than Semifinals.
And the CLT Grit Haus, when healthy, is definitely good enough to challenge for a top 10 finish.
|12||CrossFit Walleye Athlete|
|13||CrossFit Oslo Blackout|
|14||CrossFit Kilo II|
|16||CrossFit AB Mayhem|
|17||Plus 64 CrossFit 64 Army|
|19||CrossFit Invictus Unconquerable|
I consider most of the teams in this group as having a chance to make the top 10, but much more likely to finish in this range.
CrossFit Genas will likely be better than they were at Semis as one of their women is just over a year back from giving birth.
AB CrossFit will likely have some highs and lows, but with Games style programming I think a few more lows than they had at Semis.
There are only two European teams in the top-ten, but five more check in here. Curious to see if any of these can push into the top ten.
|23||Koda CrossFit Redemption|
|24||CrossFit Rhino Dawgs|
|25||TTT CrossFit Black|
|26||CrossFit Milford Team Conquer|
|27||CrossFit PSC Invasion|
|28||CrossFit Invictus Sea of Green|
|29||CrossFit Oslo NAJS|
These teams will have to fight to make the final round of cuts, but most of them will miss out on Sunday. I’d say the top 5 teams here will be within reasonable range to make that happen Saturday.
|32||Einhorn CrossFit Ascend|
|33||PFC CrossFit 3076|
|34||CrossFit Fly High Kolesnikov Team|
|35||Templo SA CrossFit|
|37||CrossFit Marvel Black|
|38||Cape CrossFit Wolfpack|
There has yet to be a push from qualifying teams out of South America, Asia, and Africa in a way that leads me to believe they can get past the first cut. Maybe I’ll be proven wrong, but until I am, they stay down here.
