When CrossFit HQ announced updated qualification standards for the 2020 CrossFit Games that will now take place in Aromas, CA, they sent out emails to the 30 male and 30 female athletes who qualified with updated information.
One big thing: The email made clear their intention to move forward with the originally scheduled July 27 – August 2 dates. Athletes have until Friday, May 15, to confirm their intention to compete which will allow HQ to begin backfilling if athletes decline their invitations.
We are writing to reconfirm your invitation to compete at the 2020 Reebok CrossFit Games.
With ongoing circumstances surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, we have shifted the format and location of the event. Presently, we are working to host a non-spectator event at The Ranch in Aromas, California, the birthplace of the Games. The event is scheduled for the week of July 27-Aug. 2. For more details, see the announcement here.
The plan is to accommodate up to 30 individual men and 30 individual women. No other divisions will compete. We will be using the worldwide Open leaderboard to determine 20 competitors in each division, as well as extending invitations to the winners or next athlete in line from each of the 10 Sanctionals that were able to host physical competitions.
Due to your placement at a Sanctionals Event, you are invited to compete in Aromas. We ask you please confirm your acceptance and intent to compete at the CrossFit Games by Friday, May 15, so we can share more information with you or notify the next athlete in line if you choose not to compete. Simply reply to this email with a “yes” or “no.”
