Adrian Bozman to Program CrossFit Games
On a recent affiliate town hall, CrossFit’s General Manager of Sport, Justin Bergh, revealed that longtime CrossFit Games head judge and seminar staff member Adrian Bozman has been selected to lead the CrossFit Games programming going forward.
- Bergh: “We’ve chosen Adrian Bozman to lead programming for the next version of the CrossFit Games.”
One big thing: As one of the longest-serving members of CrossFit’s training staff, joining in 2007 according to his LinkedIn profile, and CrossFit Games’ head judge, Bozman is an obvious pick to lead competition programming going into CrossFit’s 16th Games.
- Bergh: “It had to be someone who deeply understands CrossFit’s methodology and they had to be a red shirt at heart, so they know it to the point of fluency and there were no conflicts of interest.”
- “They have to understand the mechanics of large-scale competitions, not just program a good competition that is the right test but how do we demonstrate it broadly, how do we make sure it integrates with media and how do we continue to use this in our storytelling.”
The bottom line: It’s unclear the exact timing of when Bozman took over the role as CrossFit’s Director of Competition, however, it seems like his first full-scale programming effort will be the two semifinal workouts that CrossFit will program and implement uniformly throughout all independent semifinals.
