It’s not just the US that’s looking to embrace the sport.
As part of the Olympics opening ceremonies on Sunday, July 20, Nike will be providing CrossFit training gear and apparel for all athletes at over 3,000 participating facilities worldwide.
We’re still a long way from the worldwide use of the Crossfit brand, but this is a positive step forward in the CrossFit community.
With Nike’s approval, we’re starting to see companies support the sport.
CrossFit is still a new sport for many people, and there are a few major hurdles that are still being worked out.
First, there are a lot of variables that need to be worked out in order for a sport like CrossFit to be considered a real sport.
If you look at the sport from a distance, there are still a lot of variables that still need to be worked out, such as how much a person can do, what weight they can do and what kind of exercise they can do.
But, in terms of being a real, legitimate sport, we’re seeing companys start to take a more holistic approach.
Nike has been the one to step in and make the move into the real world, and we’re looking forward to seeing what they have planned for us this summer.
