What Are Semifinals?
As a brand new phase of the CrossFit Games season, the Semifinals will serve as the final hurdle for individual athletes and teams hoping to qualify for the 2021 NOBULL CrossFit Games.
CrossFit has partnered with a series of event organizers to host 10 Semifinal events over four consecutive weekends in May and June. Each Semifinal will host 30 men, 30 women, and 20 teams of athletes who scored top performances in the online Quarterfinals. The Semifinals will take place on six continents, with each continent hosting at least one event: North America (4), Europe (2), Oceania (1), Africa (1), Asia (1), and South America (1).
Week one successfully wrapped up the Oceania Semifinal event at the Torian Pro and one of the North American Semifinal events at the Mid-Atlantic CrossFit Challenge. The number of athletes advancing from each Semifinal event is based on region.
The top three in the men, women, and team divisions at the Torian Pro, alongside the top five in the men, women, and team divisions at the Mid-Atlantic CrossFit Challenge, have punched their ticket to the 2021 NOBULL CrossFit Games. See which athletes are advancing from the Torian Pro and Mid-Atlantic CrossFit Challenge here.
Athletes narrowly missing the chance to advance to the CrossFit Games will be invited to compete in the Last-Chance Qualifier, a final opportunity to qualify for the Games taking place the week of June 28, 2021-July 4, 2021. Athletes who finished in sixth through ninth place at the Mid-Atlantic CrossFit Challenge and fourth through sixth at the Torian Pro will advance to the Last-Chance Qualifier.
