What is CrossFit Games 2020 prize money? Awards for top 20 athletes, even those who did not make the final

  • The winners of the CrossFit Games stand to earn a lot of money, but even the 20th-placed athlete from leg one goes home with cash

The CrossFit Games 2020 is a serious money-earner for the professional athletes competing for the title of “Fittest on Earth”. There is even money for the 20th-placed athlete.

Just five men and five women are competing in the CrossFit final. They were whittled down from 30 each, who competed via a remote first leg in September. Though 25 athletes were cut, they did not all go home empty-handed.
And there is a bonus for winning an individual event. Check out the workouts here, watch the Games live here.
