What happened to the Masters, Teams and Age Group Divisions at the 2020 Games 

The COVID-19 pandemic brought changes to the 2020 CrossFit Games Season. While there seemed to be hope in early March of a return to Madison, it was clear by mid-April that circumstances had changed. 

The Games were relocated and rescheduled, and formerly Games-qualified masters, teenagers, and teams had been cut from the competition roster to maintain social distancing guidelines. CrossFit looks forward to resetting the masters, teenagers, teams, and individual competitions in 2021.
