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 3 ushers in three of the five online Semifinal events: Lowlands Throwdown, German Throwdown, and the Brazil CrossFit Championship. Unlike the in-person Semifinals, all online Semifinals will have the same workout programming. Events were released to individual athletes and teams on Friday, June 4. The scorecard for each event contains specific floor plans, judging requirements, and equipment lists. Competition windows will begin on Thursday and conclude on Sunday, with two events due per day.
