The 2020 CrossFit Games Open is upon us, and athletes from all over the world will be competing for a spot at to qualify for the CrossFit Games.

OUTWOD is encouraging athletes to be OUT in the OPEN with our new and improved Leaderboard that will aggregate scores from the CrossFit Games Open and provide an avenue for LGBTQ+ athletes to directly compete.


OUT in the OPEN promotes friendly competition between LGBTQ+ athletes and allies, allows all gender identities to participate in a sport they love, and raises funds for programs supporting the community. All CrossFit athletes are encouraged to register to be OUT in the OPEN, regardless of sexual identity.

In 2018, OUTWOD launched the first iteration of our leaderboard, OPEN+LGBTQ, as the first and only all-inclusive CrossFit Games leaderboard for the LGBTQ+ community. Through our work with CrossFit, Inc., we’re now teaming up to celebrate those who are OUT in the OPEN for the 2020 CrossFit Games Open.

OUT in the OPEN is all for charity, benefiting The OUT Foundation’s programs that continue to advocate for inclusion in fitness, access to health and wellness for the LGBTQ+ community, and more.
