Fan Favorite Margaux Alvarez Will Not Compete In CrossFit Open


In an email sent out at 3:45 PM Central, CrossFit fan favorite Margaux Alvarez wrote to fans that she will not be competing in the CrossFit Open this year.

In blunt words, Alvarez notes a loss of interest in the work needed to train at sea level, conflict with her goals to compete on American Ninja Warrior, lack of interest from Greg Glassman in the future athletes of the CrossFit Games, and her aim to eventually compete in World Long Drive Golf in March.

Margaux writes:

1) In order for me be competitive I will have to travel to sea level and I just don’t have the time or interest in spending money on that.

2) American Ninja Warrior tryout is the same time as one of the OPEN workouts, and I’m very interested to compete in the ANW

3) the owner of CF doesn’t really care about us competing in CF, so I will continue to spread the word of CF Methodology through seminars.

4) I am also competing in World Long Drive Golf competition in late March, and that leaves little interest to worry about this years leaderboard.

Let me know your thoughts on the sudden changes in the sport good or bad. Who do you think will be the next sponsor, as a business woman myself I can’t see anyone stepping in after this.
