The biggest concern for athletes competing at this past weekend’s Masters Fitness Collective Championship weren’t the workouts or placings on the leaderboards but rather competing in a live, in-person, large-scale CrossFit competition opened to the public during a pandemic. Competition organizer Bobby Petras made good on his promise to the athletes that he would put on an event with their safety specifically in mind.

Competing athletes and as well as volunteers all tested negative prior and after the competition. The IgG/IgM Rapid Test kit that the competition utilized provided results in ten minutes and helped athletes gain peace of mind.

Joel Godett goes in-depth for the Morning Chalk Up on the safety measures implemented and talks to the athletes regarding the protocols.
