On Monday night, the Loud and Live team sent out an email to athletes who registered for the International Online Qualifier 2 (IOQ2), alerting them that it would be postponed indefinitely. The event had already been pushed back and was set to run April 6-15.

One big thing: The IOQ2 serves as the qualifying event for the Madrid CrossFit Championship, the Granite Games, the Asbury Park Summer Games and the Mayan CrossFit Classic. So far, half of those events have been postponed without announcing new dates.

From the email to athletes: “As this uncertain time continues to unfold, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the International Online Qualifier 2.”

  • “While we had hoped delaying the IOQ2 until April 6-15 would allow enough time and space for current events around COVID-19 to settle down and allow us to get back to what we all love (fitness & community), that has not proven to be the case.”
  • “With that said, we are seeking new dates…We ask for your patience at this time.”

United in Movement: In the email, Loud and Live Sports asked athletes to join in the “charitable initiative meant to connet the community with at-home workouts, mobility, and much, much more.”

  • “Some of the biggest names in fitness will be leading us through live workout announcements and a live 24-hour YouTube broadcast — this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!”
