|2017 CrossFit Games|
|Venue||Alliant Energy Center|
|Dates||August 3–6, 2017|
The 2017 CrossFit Games are the eleventh CrossFit Games and were held on August 3–6, 2017, at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin, United States. This was the first Games held outside the state of California. The men's competition was won by Mathew Fraser, the women's by Tia-Clair Toomey, and Wasatch CrossFit won the Affiliate Cup. Fraser won $308,000 for his efforts and Toomey won $298,000 for her title, including bonus for event wins.
This was the first year the Masters 35–39 division was introduced. This was the first CrossFit Games in which a podium finisher in the Individual competition was disqualified for using illegal performance-enhancing substances when Ricky Garard tested positive after the Games were complete. The women's competition had one of the closest finishes in the Games history, when Toomey won by only 2 points over fellow Australian Kara Webb. For the men's competition, Fraser dominated and extended his record winning margin to 216 points over second place Brent Fikowski.
This year CBS Sports started its coverage of the Games on CBS Sports Network with live broadcast and a two-hour show of the main competition every night and a recap show on Saturday, as well as up to 40 hours of live streaming on its digital service.
Over 380,000 competitors participated in this year's CrossFit Open. The Open took place over 5 weeks from February 23 through March 27, 2017, with one workout released each week. A new Masters 35-39 Division was introduced this year. The workouts for the Open were stream live from many locations around the world for the first time. Mat Fraser and Sara Sigmundsdóttir were the respective winner of the men's and women's competitions.
As with previous years, the top athletes from each of the Open Region moved on to 8 Regionals, and all the top men and women who can qualify for the Regionals were required to submitted videos of their performance from the Open, although this year more are required to submit their videos than previous years. The 8 Regionals took place in three consecutive weekends from May 19 to June 4. Most Regionals had 40 men, 40 women and 30 teams competing. The top five men, top five women, an top five teams from each Regional qualified for the Games, giving a total of 40 men, 40 women and 40 teams who qualified for the Games.

- Move a yoke, farmer's logs, and a sled across a field. Return down the field in a handstand walk

The objects had to be taken halfway down the field (60 feet) and then the competitor returned using a handstand walk. Once all objects were at the halfway mark, the competitors took the objects to the end of the field, also returning to the middle of the field with a handstand walk. The objects could be moved in any order. Brent Fikowski won the event for the men and Katrin Tanja Davidsdottir for the women.
Event 9: Muscle-up Clean Ladder

Event 11: Madison Triplet
5 rounds for time of:
- 450 meter run
- 7 hay bale clean burpees
Athletes ran around a 450-meter path outside of the stadium. In the stadium, there were five rows of hay bale walls. The athletes would enter the stadium and clean a sandbag up and toss it over the hay bale wall. They would then perform a burpee and then jump over the wall. The hay bale clean burpee would be performed seven times at the same hay bale wall before moving the sandbag to the next wall. After the sandbag is moved, the athletes ran back to the path to make another lap. The sandbags were 100 pounds for the men and 70 pounds for the women. The event was won by Ricky Garard* for the men and Samantha Briggs for the women.
Event 12: 2223 Intervals
4 rounds of:
- 2 rope climbs
- 10/7-calorie SkiErg
- Maximum repetitions of overhead squats with remaining time
This was an interval event with the first three rounds consisting of two minutes of work and then one minute of rest. The final round was three minutes of work to get as many overhead squats as possible or a total of 75 through all rounds for time. For each round, competitors started with two 20-foot rope climbs. After the rope climbs, the competitors pulled 10 calories for men and 7 calories for women on a SkiErg, a machine built by Concept2 similar to their rowing machines but meant to simulate a cross-country skiing motion. With the remaining time in each interval, they accumulated as many squats as they could with 155 pounds for the men and 105 pounds for the women. The event was won by Mathew Fraser and Katrín Davíðsdóttir. Significantly for the women's competition, Kara Webb who finished second was penalized 6 seconds after a judge erroneously allowed her to finish before she had completed all her reps (she was penalized 2 seconds for every rep she did not complete), which dropped her to fourth and more crucially lost her 10 points.
Event 13: Fibonacci Final
- Parallettehandstand push-ups (5 for men / 3 for women)
- 5 Deadlifts with two kettlebells (203 lb. for men / 124 lb. for women)

- 89-foot overhead lunge with two 53-pound kettlebells (53 lb. for men / 35 lb. for women)
This event was won by Logan Collins and Ragnheiður Sara Sigmundsdottir. In the men's event, only Collins finished within the six-minute time cap with 2017 Games champion Mathew Fraser ending one lunge from the finish to take second in the event. On the women's side, Kara Webb had been in second-place overall below Tia-Clair Toomey. She edged out Toomey on the event by 0.19 seconds but did not overtake her in total points, finishing two points behind on the final standings.
