Semifinals Update: CrossFit Asia Invitational, CrossFit Lowlands Throwdown, and Brazil CrossFit Championship Move to Virtual Competition

April 20, 2021

CrossFit is actively monitoring evolving conditions around the COVID-19 pandemic in local markets hosting Semifinal events, including local health and event guidelines, and working closely with Semifinal organizers to address local circumstances. After evaluating relevant travel restrictions and likely limitations on live sporting events, CrossFit and local event organizers have mutually decided to transition the CrossFit Asia Invitational, the CrossFit Lowlands Throwdown, and the Brazil CrossFit Championship to virtual events hosted by the CrossFit Games. These changes have resulted in a shift in the overall Semifinal schedule. Please see the updated schedule below:

In addition to scheduled Semifinal events, CrossFit may add a Catchall Virtual Semifinal, which would take place in Week 4 (June 18-20). The Catchall Virtual Semifinal would allow any athletes who were unable to travel to their respective Semifinal due to local COVID restrictions a chance to compete. Athletes in the Catchall event would compete only against each other for a chance to advance. 

The CrossFit Games will provide broad coverage of the Semifinal events across our various platforms like the CrossFit Games websiteFacebook, and Instagram. Any additional changes to the format, schedule, or location of Semifinal events will be announced on
