"We're excited to offer fans more live coverage than ever before with our presentation of the 2015 Reebok CrossFit Games across ESPN's platforms, which will include for the first time, team events on ESPN and ESPN2," said Todd Myers, director, programming & acquisitions, ESPN. "The CrossFit Games continue to grow in popularity and the competition to be crowned fittest on earth has never been fiercer."

Steve Weiss, Corporate Development for CrossFit, Inc., said, "We are proud of our relationship with ESPN and the increased support for the CrossFit Games with expanded live coverage that will now also include team competition in addition to individuals. With more live coverage than ever, ESPN is set to showcase the 2015 Reebok CrossFit Games as the ultimate proving grounds for the fittest athletes on Earth."

The CrossFit Games are an annual fitness competition where male and female athletes compete to be named the Fittest on Earth. CrossFit Games competitors generally do not know the nature, duration, number, frequency or timing of the workouts they will be required to complete during the competition until shortly before each event begins. The constantly varied workouts are designed to test a competitor's general physical preparedness, including strength, speed, agility and endurance, through a combination of Olympic lifts, gymnastics movements, agility courses, powerlifting, running and more.

The CrossFit Games are the final stage of a season-long competition that started with more than 272,000 competitors and designed to determine the world's fittest male and female athletes through a wide variety of athletic challenges. The finalists previously had to advance through the online Open competition and Regional competitions to earn the right to compete at the Games. This year marks the ninth annual CrossFit Games and the fifth year in which Reebok is the title sponsor. Learn more about the CrossFit Games and CrossFit, Inc.
