"The CrossFit Games are the world’s premier test to find the Fittest on Earth. They are world-renowned as a grueling test for the toughest athletes on Earth as well as a thrilling experience for spectators. Since its inception in 2007, the CrossFit Games became 'one of the fastest growing sports in America.'”
The 2019 CrossFit games was held in Madison, Wisconsin, from August 1 - 4. This was the third straight year the Games were hosted in Madison (the first being the 2017 Games).
Dave Castro @thedavecastro, Director of the CrossFit Games, posted some insight into the origins of this WOD a couple of weeks after the end of the 2019 CrossFit Games:
"About 11-12 years ago I was teaching at a L1 seminar at CrossFit San Diego. During our lunch break I talked to some of the other staff about an idea I had. I wondered if any CrossFitters could finish those 3 benchmarks in under 10 minutes. I postulated that being capable of that accomplishment would be a great standard for a well rounded elite CrossFit athlete. Back then a few people played around with it. There is a YouTube video of [Rob Orlando] @crossfitrobo taking it on. For a number of reasons it never made it into the Games. Until . And as the final. I was very pleased with how it played out and how it capped off the 2019 Games. Every year we have a lot of ideas for good tests and events and often times they get pushed off to the next year, sometimes a few years later, sometimes never. In this case it was a decade later."
