What Are the Quarterfinals?

The Quarterfinals are an online competition that will serve as the second step in the qualification process for the 2021 NOBULL CrossFit Games. Teams competing in the Quarterfinals will be required to compete in a series of advanced events over the course of the weekend, from Thursday, April 22, through Sunday, April 25.

Scores will be submitted in a similar fashion to the Open, but there will be multiple competition windows over the course of the weekend during which teams will need to submit their scores, each by a certain deadline. For example, the first two workouts will need to be submitted by Friday, April 23, at 12 p.m. PT. Teams must complete the events (known as “tests”) as written and submit their scores on time. Any teams hoping to advance to Semifinals, or whose scores affect advancing teams, must include a video of their performance with their score submissions.
