The 2012 CrossFit Games season mirrored 2011. The 2012 Open challenged 69,000 registered athletes to five events. The top 60 men, 60 women and 30 teams from each region moved on to Regionals, where the level of competition reached heights previously reserved for the CrossFit Games finals.
The only man to compete in every CrossFit Games, Chris Spealler, nearly missed the cut-off for Games qualification from the South West. The CrossFit world anxiously followed social media to keep track of Spealler’s fate. When he pulled off a Day 3 comeback and secured his sixth Games, #Spealler trended on Twitter in his honor.
The first of 6 total workouts for the 2012 CrossFit Games Regionals (aka: "Regionals 12.1") was announced on April 18, 2012.
