CrossFit games coming to Madison

The CrossFit games, a sports competition based in the fitness regimen created by Greg Glassman, will be hosted in the Alliant Energy Center from 2017 through 2019, according to a city press release.

“As a competitive CrossFit athlete for several years, I was elated when Jamie Patrick of the Madison Sports Commission approached me about Madison putting together a bid for the Games,” Ald. Amanda Mary-Myriah Hall, District 3, wrote in the release. “I was thrilled to be included in the proposal and subsequent site visits, showcasing to CrossFit executives how Madison is [a] perfect fit for the Games.”

Madison is the former host of the Outdoor Games and has hosted an annual Ironman since 2002.

“As a Madisonian and an athlete, I couldn't be prouder that our vibrant, forward city gets to show off its fitness and recreation credentials plus its large scale athletic event host skills in celebrating the fittest athletes on earth,” Hall wrote.

The games were previously hosted in Los Angeles and will begin in Madison next summer.
