Score submissions & Video guide

The registration for the online qualifiers is now open and it will close at 21:00 (GMT+3:00) on Sunday 30th of August. No late entries will be accepted. All athletes will need to register under a CrossFit Affiliate. An affiliate manager will have to be nominated and will be responsible for verifying athletes scores each week. Affiliate managers need to be nominated to info@helsinkishowdown.com, after which they will receive further information.

Only non-affiliated athletes will have to submit a link of their video (YouTube/Vimeo) after every qualifier WOD. The organisers reserve the right to request a video from any of the competing athletes at any point before the actual main event!

Prior to starting, the athlete should clearly state their name, affiliate and country. The plates, barbell and other equipment to be used in the workout should be seen clearly. All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. A second person with a stopwatch should be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Shoot the video from an angle so all movements can be clearly seen meeting the movement standards.

Scoring  standards for the qualifiers and main event

The Athlete with the best performance over multiple workouts in the qualifiers and main event wins and/or advances. The winner will be determined by lowest point in total.

Ties on the overall Leaderboard (either for the qualifiers, or main event) will be broken by awarding the best position to the Athlete who has the highest result in any single workout. If Athletes are still tied, the process continues to their next highest single result, and so forth. Ties will not be broken for single event results.

If an Athlete does not advance to the next workout for any reason (DNF, injury, disqualification, etc.), they will be ranked below all competitors who started that workout and are not eligible to advance to the next stage of competition.

Scaling or modifying the workout is prohibited (unless otherwise stated) and will cause the Athlete to not advance.
