Age Group Online Qualifier and Occupational Games
The Age Group Online Qualifier and Occupational Games will take place May 6-9. The AGOQ Games is a competition between the fittest teens aged 14-17 and masters aged 35 and over, based on the Open leaderboard.
Some athletes chose not to participate in their respective age group, instead have partaken the path to the CrossFit Games individually, such as teenagers Emma Cary and Mallory O’Brien, and master athlete Sam Briggs.
According to the 2021 CrossFit Games Competition Rulebook the top 20 men and 20 women in each age-group division (including teenage divisions) will qualify to compete at the Games. If an athlete ranked in the top 20 in any division decline to compete at the Games, the next highest-ranked athlete in that division may qualify to compete.
The Occupational Games is a new competition created for the 2021 CrossFit season. The new tournament is initially only eligible for six professional occupations:
- Military service member
- Law enforcement officer
- Healthcare worker
- College student
Athletes who identified themselves as having either of these occupations were eligible to compete in the Occupational Games. The top 10% of athletes from each of those categories in the Open leaderboard have been invited via e-mail last week.
At the end of The Occupational Games, the CrossFit community will have six new titles of fittest, such as Fittest Law Enforcement Officer on Earth and Fittest Healthcare Worker on Earth.
