CROSSFIT NEWS – Important Information about Scaling During The Open

Are you thinking of scaling the Open this year or any of the workouts? Then check out this latest update on how it will work in 2017.

The following statement is from CrossFit:

“The prescribed Open workouts released for each competitive division (i.e., individual men and women and all age-group divisions) may be accompanied by a scaled version. Athletes unable to perform a workout as prescribed may choose the scaled workout provided.

Athletes may finish the Open with any combination of scaled and prescribed workouts contributing to their score on the Leaderboard.

In every division, an athlete who chooses to perform a scaled workout will be ranked on the Leaderboard relative to all other athletes performing the scaled version of the workout but below all athletes who performed that workout “as prescribed.”

“Full effort is full victory”

New: Any athlete who fails to submit a score will receive a score of “0” and will be ranked below all athletes who entered a score, whether prescribed or scaled, for that workout.

Athletes are eligible to advance to the next stage of competition (Regionals, Online Qualifier or Games) even if they choose to perform the scaled version of one or more Open workouts.

An athlete’s score from a scaled workout cannot contribute toward the team’s score. However, an athlete who performs scaled workouts is still eligible to participate on their affiliate’s team as long as they meet all the team requirements.

About The Author

Editor-In-Chief at BOXROX. I come from a background of rugby and weightlifting. Growing up in the English Lake District, I spent a great deal of time swimming in its stunning lakes and rivers. In 2015 my brothers and I became the first people to swim the 145km length of the River Eden, from source to mouth, in 9 days. We also swam the Corryvreckan whirlpool, the third largest in the world, and Crossfit is a huge part of my training for these events.
