This coming weekend, much of the CrossFit world will converge on Los Angeles to celebrate the world championships of our sport.

And this year, for the first time ever, we are bringing the entire weekend to you live in a free HD webcast on live.crossfit.com. We'll launch with a live Preview Show on Thursday at 6pm PDT. Our all-star ten-person announcer team will work around the clock to enhance your viewing experience. Each one is an experienced CrossFitter. Most are on the traveling CrossFit Seminar Staff. Most have top ten finishes in past Games or this year's Regionals. All of them know the sport inside and out.
We have 3 categories of announcers.
Commentators will talk you through the action in real time. Play-by-play descriptions of what's happening in the arena. Justin, Marty, Jenn, Bill, and Kim will do the heavy lifting here.
Analysts will delve into the strategy, tactics and history of the sport, most of whom will be learning the workouts in real time with you. As past competitors, they'll give insight into what the athletes are experiencing and describe how they'd approach the events. Pat, Josh, and Caity are the staples here.
Roving Reporters will give you live interviews with coaches, athletes, spectators and bring you the feel of the venue. The Home Depot Center will be packed with CrossFit Weblebrities, many of whom you will recognize from articles, videos and Journal pieces. Miranda, Pat, Karianne, and Kim will share the love.
