2014 Masters Qualifier Events

This page will contain all Masters Qualifier events. Four events will be released at 5 p.m. PT, Thursday, April 17 on Games.CrossFit.com. 

In 2014, CrossFit introduced the first-ever Masters Qualifier. The top 200 masters athletes each age division—40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59 and 60-plus—will have from Thursday, April 17 to Monday, April 21 to complete four events. Events may be completed in any order. All four event scores must be submitted no later than 5 p.m. PT on April 21.

Masters athletes will have five scores recorded to determine the top 20 in each age division. The first of five scores for each masters athlete will be their final Open ranking. The other four scores are the final rankings of each event from the Masters Qualifier.

Athletes may be asked to submit video of one of the four events. Masters athletes are encouraged to film each of the four Masters Qualifier events.

The 20 athletes with the fewest points at the end of the Qualifier will receive an invitation to compete at the CrossFit Games in Carson, Calif.

Event 1

1-rep-max clean

Notes
In this event you will perform a clean for max load. There is no minimum or maximum number of attempts. Your score will be the load you successfully clean. You may not use plates smaller than 1 lb. or 0.5 kg. You may enter your score in either pounds or kilograms.

Equipment
• Barbell
• Plates to load to your max weight clean

Video Submission Standards
For this event only the heaviest lift repetition must be shown on video. The plates and barbell must be filmed before or after the successful lift so the loads can be seen clearly. All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. A second person should be in the frame throughout the entire video. Shoot the video from the side so it is clear the elbows are in front of the bar while standing tall with the barbell.

Prior to starting, show measurements of the marked box for the handstand push-ups. Shoot the movements from the side so it is clear all the calories are rowed, the head touches the floor at the bottom and the arms are locked out at the top of the handstand push-ups, and the rope passes twice under the feet on the double-under.
