The conclusion of the 2020 Age Group Online Qualifier marks the end of the 2020 season for age group athletes. Below is a brief recap. The Qualifier The 2020 Age Group Online Qualifier (AGOQ) took place March 12-16. During that time, lockdowns and restrictions began to interfere with some athletes' ability to participate in the event. At that time, the plan was to run the Games as scheduled. There was an option to delay the competition. Ultimately, the decision was made to proceed with the competition in the interest of hosting age group athletes at the 2020 Reebok CrossFit Games in Madison. Following the conclusion of the AGOQ, a review was conducted comparing how many athletes submitted workouts for all events in 2019 versus 2020. The comparison is available on the Games site. Link in bio. While there was a slight decrease in score submissions this year, the emerging global situation made it clear that extending the score submission window or delaying the competition would not improve athletes’ ability to participate. Penalties The video review process for validating and assessing score submissions concluded yesterday, April 29. Details for each penalty assessed are available through the article in bio. With these penalties applied, scores and rankings have now been adjusted, and the Online Qualifier Leaderboard is complete. Congratulations to all participating athletes on your placements. Season Ends On April 16, it was announced that the 2020 Reebok CrossFit Games would not be held in Madison, and all options were being evaluated for a change in format in light of the current constraints. This year, there will not be an in-person competition to crown the fittest in the CrossFit Games Age Groups. Prize money will not be issued. The age group competition will resume when the season resets in 2021. — #CrossFitGames #CrossFit #CrossFitMasters #CrossFitTeens #Fitness Images captured by @melkzdeck
