In 2018 The Dubai CrossFit® Championship became the first CrossFit®-sanctioned event in the world rewarding the first place male, female and team competitors with a qualification to the 2019 Rebook CrossFit Games®. From 2016-2017, the event built on its previous success with the introduction of an online qualifier, which allowed the Dubai CrossFit® Championship to reach more athletes than ever before. In 2017, a total of 72 athletes from 19 different countries representing four continents (including 32 CrossFit Games® athletes) competed. From 2012-2015, prior to the online qualifier, athletes were required to travel to Dubai and compete across multiple gyms and venues to earn a spot to the finals a week later. This grassroots approach provided a great platform for the local fitness community to thrive and compete amongst themselves and set the stage for the years to come.
