What is the CrossFit Open 2021?
The CrossFit Open is an ONLINE competition that takes place every year. In 2021 there will be 3 workouts spread over 3 weeks that the participating athletes will have to complete. After that, they register their brand in the online ranking to verify their performance in each of the workouts.
In previous years, the Open served as a direct qualification route for the CrossFit Games, but this year it will not be like that. It will have some changes that we explain below.
In 2021, due to the situation we are experiencing, an Open has been thought of that can be held both in a box and at home. This year there is no excuse for not doing the Open. According to CrossFit Games , the necessary material will be a dumbbell, bar and discs, box, skipping rope and pull-up bar.
What changes in the CrossFit Open 2021?
- The Open does not give direct access to the CrossFit Games.
- National champions and their direct access to the CrossFit Games disappear.
- The Open will be used as a qualifier for Sanctioned events and the new regionals.
- This year the Open will last 3 weeks and 3 workouts instead of the usual 5 and its corresponding 5 workouts.
- The Adaptive category is incorporated to make the CrossFit Open 2021 even more inclusive.
- Quarterfinals and semifinals are added to get the games square.
The quarterfinals and semifinals
After the CrossFit Open, the 10% best ranked in the ranking will qualify for the quarterfinals based on the regions in which they are registered. In teams it will be 25%. The quarterfinals will last approximately 3 days.
The semifinals will be the last step to reach the CrossFit Games. At the moment, no further details are known about it.
