Dates confirmed for the 2020 CrossFit Games

The latest announcement on the CrossFit Games website has the following information:

The live-streamed online competition will begin on Friday, September 18, and last 2-3 days, while the televised in-person finals will be held in Northern California the week of October 19-25.

The online format was announced a couple days before. Essentially it is an online event with the top 30 female and male invitees to the Games and the top 5 of that online event are then invited to an in-person event in Northern California. This sounds a lot like the Rogue Invitational online event format with an actual in-person competition at the end. There will also be a judge from the CrossFit seminar staff at each place of each competitor during the online events.

What do you think? Is this a good or a bad change? Are you looking forward to the events?

Recently there were a couple of updates about the 2020 CrossFit Games via the official instagram account. Here is a summary of the latest announcements:

  • The top 20 men and 20 women of the Open worldwide will receive invites to Aromas
  • The ten Sanctionals that were able to host in-person competitions this season will be invited to send their champions to this year’s CrossFit Games. […] If a Sanctionals champion has already qualified through the Open, the invite passes to the next athlete.
  • There will not be a team competition at the 2020 Reebok CrossFit Games.
  • In light of current constraints, it will not be possible to host the previously invited 239 national champions in Aromas. The national champion race will reset in 2021.

On April 16, we announced that we are reviewing all options to host the CrossFit Games in Aromas while monitoring events globally. That effort is ongoing. Due to current limitations on social gatherings, and professional sport in particular, the field of athletes in attendance will be reduced. The Open Since the inception of the CrossFit Open, the top 20 athletes on the Open leaderboard have always included the future CrossFit Games champion among their ranks, and the Open winner has gone on to become the Games winner eight times. The top 20 men and 20 women worldwide will receive invites to Aromas. If an athlete declines their invite, the invite passes to the next athlete. Sanctionals The ten Sanctionals that were able to host in-person competitions this season will be invited to send their champions to this year’s CrossFit Games. Sanctionals invites are affected by placement in the Open. If a Sanctionals champion has already qualified through the Open, the invite passes to the next athlete. This process will hold true for this reduced field. For this reason, some invites that were extended before the government lockdowns may pass back to the original invitee. Beginning today, all previously invited individuals will be contacted with an update on the status of their invite. There will not be a team competition at the 2020 Reebok CrossFit Games. National Champions Last year, CrossFit Headquarters expanded the field of athletes in attendance at the Games to include the fittest athlete in every eligible country. In light of current constraints, it will not be possible to host the previously invited 239 national champions in Aromas. The national champion race will reset in 2021 with invites extended to champions who earn top placement in the upcoming CrossFit Open. 2021 Season The changes above have been made in consideration of the current challenges globally. The CrossFit Games will reset for the 2021 season with the intent of returning to crowning national champions and including teams, age group athletes, and a deep field of individuals competing for the title of Fittest on Earth in Madison, Wisconsin. #CrossFitGames @crossfitranch

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
