The Age Group Online Qualifier (AGOQ) is the direct route to the CrossFit Games for Age Group athletes. The online competition is open to the top 200 athletes in each age group, and the top 10 in each category qualify to the CrossFit Games.
Athletes from around the world between the ages of 14 to 17 and 35 to 55+ will complete six workouts to establish this year’s Age Group CrossFit Games qualifiers.
Similar to the CrossFit Open, the workouts for the AGOQ are released on a Thursday and athletes have four days, until Monday March 16 at 5pm PT, to submit their scores. The top 10 will be established after the video review process.
In the midst of the coronavirus, CrossFit HQ released the following statement on social media:
“With the start of this global competition, we realize that some athletes in areas affected by COVID-19 may not be able to compete due to constraints beyond their control.
“This is an unfortunate circumstance. However, to maintain the standards for this qualifier for the CrossFit Games, the published deadlines for score submission will remain in effect.”
Good luck to everyone taking part.
