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?
|Event||Last-Chance Qualifiers Position|
|Mid-Atlantic CrossFit Challenge||6th to 8th place||6th to 8th place|
|Torian Pro||4th to 6th place||4th to 6th place|
|Granite Games||6th to 8th place||6th to 8th place|
|CrossFit Fittest in Capetown||2nd to 4th place||2nd to 4th place|
|CrossFit Lowlands Throwdown||6th to 9th place||6th to 8th place|
|Brazil CrossFit Championship||3rd to 5th place||3rd to 5th place|
|CrossFit German Throwdown||6th to 8th place||6th to 8th place|
|West Coast Classic||6th to 8th place||6th to 8th place|
|CrossFit Atlas Games||6th to 9th place||6th to 9th place|
|CrossFit Asia Invitational||3rd to 6th place||3rd to 5th place|
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.
