Background: “Damn Diane” was the 3rd of 7 total workouts for the 2020 CrossFit Games (Championships). The new format of the 2020 CrossFit Games consists of two stages: an online competition in athletes’ home countries from which the top five men and top five women will advance and an in-person finals in California to crown the Fittest Man and Fittest Woman on Earth.

CrossFit Games Director @thedavecastro teased the names of this and another couple of familiar-sounding workouts, “Nasty Nancy,” “Awful Annie,” and “Friendly Fran” before The CrossFit Games officially announced them the next day on Wednesday, September 16, 2020.
