SYNLawn and AstroTurf Partner Up to Install Modular Turf System for the 2019 CrossFit Games

Madison, WI — The CrossFit Games is the world’s ultimate physical competition, inviting elite athletes from around the globe to prove who is the fittest. Since its inception in 2007, the games relied on artificial turf as a durable sports surfacing solution able to withstand the rigors of the tournament. After years of discarding the used synthetic turf, event organizers tapped the expertise of SYNLawn Minnesota to find a cost-effective, reusable surfacing solution. Selecting a modular turf system for this year’s Games, sister companies AstroTurf and SYNLawn partnered up to complete the massive installation.
