It’s now official – the CrossFit Invitational is returning in 2015 as many of us expected.
The international event started back in 2012 when Team USA beat Team Europe in the UK.
In 2013 the competiton was held in Berlin, Germany, with Team World defeating Team USA, while last year the event saw four teams compete, with Team USA provng too strong for Team Canada, Team Europe and Team Australia.
At this stage we are still short on details about the 2015 CrossFit Invitational, but what we do know is that Team Pacific, Team Europe and Team Canada will all be competing at the event with HQ announcing the make up of thier teams earlier in the week.
We also now know that USA will be competing after thier team roster was announced a short time ago.
Team USA will consist of:
Ben Smith – Current CrossFit Games champion and two time podium finisher.
Dan Bailey – 4th place finisher at the 2015 CrossFit Games.
Chyna Cho – 6th place finisher at the 2015 CrossFit Games.
Lindsey Valenzuela – Finished 7th at the 2015 CrossFit Games and former podium finisher.
Rich Froning (coach) – Four time CrossFit Games champion.
Unlike last year where the Invitational was held in America, this year’s event will be taking place in Europe again, in Madrid, Spain.
At this stage no date has been set for the 2015 CrossFit Invitational but an announcement is expected later in the week so keep an eye on the CrossFit Games website for updates.
