CrossFit Semifinals: Seeding; Catch-All Virtual Cancelled & Additional Spots for Last-Chance Qualifier

Tia-Clair Toomey-Orr and 5 other athletes won’t participate in their continental Semifinal event and have been moved to virtual competitions based on where they are living due to COVID travel restrictions.

Spots Added For Last-Chance Qualifier; Catch-All Canceled

The Last-Chance Qualifier, which takes place in the week of June 28, happens a week after the Semifinals. Originally, the top three men and three women shy of advancing to the CrossFit Games would participate in the Last-Chance Qualifier.

This has now changed.

“CrossFit is aware that placing athletes outside their continental region affects the competition field. Keeping this in mind, any event that has an athlete from another continental region competing will get four spots at the Last-Chance Qualifier instead of the original three,” CrossFit announced, adding that no additional qualifying spots will be added to the Games.

Which athletes will qualify for the Last-Chance Qualifier?

Bold fields represent changes.

For example, that means that an athlete who finished 9th in the CrossFit Atlas Games will be eligible for the Last-Chance Qualifier event.

At the conclusion of the Last-Chance Qualifier, the top two men and two women will advance to the Games.

“Due to these changes, CrossFit has canceled the Catch-All Virtual Semifinal event, as all athletes have now been placed in live or virtual Semifinal events that allow their participation,” the announcement read.
