As expected by many, the CrossFit Invitational is returning in 2013!
HQ has just confirmed that the international CrossFit Event will be held in Germany this year on October 26 at the Tempelhof Airport in Berlin.
Last year, Team USA and Team Europe battled it out in London in the inaugural Event, and this year it will be Team USA taking on Team World at the 2013 CrossFit Invitational.
At a media conference at the 2013 CrossFit Games, Director Dave Castro revealed five of the six representatives of Team USA.
He confirmed Rich Froning, Jason Khalipa, Ben Smith, Lindsey Valenzuela and Valerie Voboril will all take part. It’s now also been confirmed that Talayna Fortunato will make up the sixth and final spot on the Team roster.
Six of the fittest athletes from outside of the U.S. will represent Team World with Sam Briggs and Annie Thorisdottir (if she’s fit) expected to line up.
At this stage, no details on ticketing has been released, but make sure you check the Games site regularly for any updates.
Also, for those unable to make the trip to Berlin, you can watch entire 2013 CrossFit Invitational live on Eurosport!
