Age group athletes compete in the Open against all other athletes in their age division worldwide for the opportunity to advance to the next level of competition.
Following the Open, the top 200 age group athletes worldwide in each age division qualify to compete in the Age Group Online Qualifier. Similar to the Open, in this competition, age group athletes submit scores and/or videos for five workouts.
The Online Qualifier workouts have now been released. Age group athletes will have until Monday, May 6, 2019, at 5:00 p.m. PT, to submit their scores and/or videos for these workouts.
Age group athletes submitting scores must use a registered judge for each workout and have their performance validated by a validly licensed CrossFit affiliate in good standing. In addition, all workouts must be videotaped.
At the start of the Age Group Online Qualifier, all rankings will reset, and each athlete will start with the same rank. Age group athletes then will have scores tabulated from the Online Qualifier in order to determine their final rank leading up to the Games. If an athlete fails to post a valid
score in an Online Qualifier workout for any reason, that athlete will receive a score of “0” for that workout.
Ties on the overall leaderboard for the Online Qualifier will be broken by awarding the best position to the athlete who has the highest result in any single Online Qualifier workout. If athletes remain tied after this first tiebreaker, the process continues to their next-highest single result, and so forth.
Results from individual Open workouts will NOT be used to break ties on the overall Online Qualifier leaderboard. Ties will not be broken for single event results. More than one athlete can share an event result, and each will earn the original point value.
