CrossFit Games Misses Video Review Deadline
CrossFit HQ’s self-imposed deadline to finalize the Open rankings was missed Monday evening. The 2020 CrossFit Games rulebook gave the organization until 5:00 PM PT on Monday, December 16, to complete the video review process for both the top 20 and national champions and finalize the leaderboard.
- Section 1.22: “Open rankings will not be finalized until the completion of the video review process on Dec. 16, 2019.”
One big thing: This means the leaderboard is NOT yet finalized and it’s possible for additional penalties or adjustments to occur. We reached out to multiple athletes who qualified through the Open who confirmed that CrossFit has not communicated the delay or updated time frame with athletes, though some have been asked for additional videos.
CrossFit Games staff said that the delay was due to delays in the review process and scoring adjustments but didn’t share a timeline for when the process would be complete.
