The Voice of America Games are a gathering of athletes wanting to test their performance against fellow CrossFitters in a competitive arena. The setting is in the historic Voice of America park, which was formerly a radio broadcasting center serving the world for more than 50 years by delivering news of freedom and democracy to oppressed citizens all over the world.
We are not simply looking to find the fittest person, we are looking to find athletes who are willing to lay it on the line in honor of their country and CrossFit community.
The Voice of America Games are a celebration of competitive fitness that will have a patriotic pulse, something that spectators and athletes alike will enjoy. Come join us on September 28th if you love CrossFit, camaraderie and the freedom we have to express these attributes in the place we know as home.
