2011 CrossFit Games: Qualifying Information!

The first announcement, of what will surely be many in the coming weeks, has been released!

From the CrossFit Games website comes the following news:

“The CrossFit Games Open is a six-week competition that will begin Tuesday, March 15th at 17:00 PDT. This competition is the first step in qualifying for the 2011 CrossFit Games. Each week, one event will be announced each Tuesday, and everyone has until the following Sunday at 17:00 PDT to complete the event and record their scores.”

There are two ways that people will be allowed to qualify:
1. Compete at a Registered Affiliate: Attend a workout session at a registered affiliate and submit your score for the affiliate to validate.

2. Compete Anywhere: Perform the workout as prescribed anywhere you can or want, and videotape it. Submit your score and upload your video.

It’s crazy to most CrossFitters to imagine how they’re going to organize, validate and report back on what could be hundreds of thousands of entries from around the entire planet, but I’m sure they’ll find a way!

I’ll keep you posted, as always, when more information is released. Until then, keep training…..
