Video Submission and the Open
New Video Requirements for Regional Qualifiers (excerpt below)
Any athlete who hopes to compete at Regionals will need to follow a few extra steps during the Open.
Those who complete the Open workouts at an affiliate will need to:
1. Use a registered judge who has passed CrossFit’s Judges Course,
2. Have their result validated by an affiliate manager,
3. Videotape their performance.
Videos are required to collect prize money, and may be requested by CrossFit Games staff at any point during the Open.
At the end of the Open, the top 60 men and top 60 women in each region will be required to submit at least one complete video of one of the Open workouts. Athletes will not be told which video they will need to submit until after the final workout has closed. The required video will be verified by CrossFit Games staff prior to sending out Regional invitations for individuals and teams.
After the video review, the top 48 men, top 48 women and top 30 teams in each region will be invited to compete in their respective Regional competition.
Team competitors are included. If an athlete on a Regional qualifying team finishes in the top 60 in the individual division in their region, he or she will have to submit video of the Open workout requested by CrossFit.
New Masters Qualifier
In the Open, Masters will compete against all other international athletes for the opportunity to advance to the next level of competition. Following the Open, the top 200 Masters athletes in each age division will be invited to perform four additional workouts.
WE RECOMMEND HIGHLY that you prep your video capabilities in advance of this coming Friday. Know your recording device, know how to work it, and make sure it records for at least 30 minutes.
