By 2013, the CrossFit Open had become a favorite tradition in many CrossFit affiliates, complete with parties and year-round anticipation. Participation doubled from 2012 with more than 138,000 registered competitors. One change in 2013 switched up the competition — just 48 men and 48 women, down from 60 in previous years, automatically qualified for Regionals from each Region. Nonetheless, in some regions where many top-48 individual athletes decided to compete on a team or declined the invitation, CrossFit invited the next closest athletes from the Open.

Even as the CrossFit Games became a big-time sport, with ESPN coverage, stadium workouts and brand name sponsors, the CrossFit Games season preserved the spirit of Aromas in the early years. “Regional competitor” began to carry the same aura that “Games athlete” did just a few years earlier. CrossFitters of Asia, Australia and 15 other regions gathered to watch their area’s fittest fight to make it to the CrossFit Games.

The third of 7 total workouts for the 2013 CrossFit Games Regionals (aka: "Regionals 13.3") was announced on May 6, 2013.
