The 2021 CrossFit Games Semifinals continued over the weekend, with the Granite Games. This is the results of this contest, revealing who earned a spot to the Finals next month.

The Granite Games is one half of this week’s Semifinal action. After a successful Torian Pro and Mid-Atlantic CrossFit Challenge in the first week of action, athletes competed both here in Minnesota, as well as at the Fittest In Cape Town event in South Africa.

Both competitions ended with several athletes being invited to advance to the Finals, scheduled for July 27th-August 1st. For the North American Semifinals, the top five men, top five women, and top five teams will move to the Finals, whereas it is just the top two of each for the South African contest.

The 2021 Granite Games took place across three days, with a ton of exciting action taking place. By the end of the weekend, we knew the ten individuals and five teams that would join the rest of the roster for the Games Finals.

Below are the results of this contest, and a recap of the action from the weekend:
