The next step on the road to the 2022 NOBULL CrossFit Games is almost here. On May 20, the 2022 CrossFit Semifinals will begin in three different countries. Then, over four weeks and on every continent except Antarctica, the Semifinals will determine which Men’s, Women’s, and Team division athletes advance to Madison, WI, for the CrossFit Games in early August.
On May 16, 2022, the CrossFit organization revealed the live-streaming information for folks to watch this year’s Semifinals events.

With the COVID-19 pandemic sidelining in-person competition since Spring 2020, many of the CrossFit athletes have become accustomed to videotaping their workouts and submitting them online. Last year, in 2021, half of the 10 Semifinals were online. This year will see the return of fans, who can watch the athletes at each of the respective events around the world.
If for some reason, a fan can’t attend an event in person, they will be able to live-stream all of the Semifinals events through Games.CrossFit.com and YouTube.
