SCORING ADJUSTMENTS

We have updated the leaderboard and we are close to being able to reveal the top20 who qualified for the 2020 Reykjavik CrossFit Championship finals.

This is how we have judged the videos:

lunge:

lack of extension: 1sec/rep, not reaching the line: 1sec/infraction, bringing DB down before crossing the line: 1sec/infraction, walking further than 20ft in a straight line: 5sec/infraction

CTB:

Miscount/failed rep: 2sec/rep

OHS: lack of depth: 1sec/rep, lack of extension: 1sec/rep

DB snatch:

finishing with DB in front of body: 1sec/rep, touching one end of DB; 0,5sec/rep, not locking out the elbow: 0,5sec/rep

We have contacted all athletes who have provided poor video or did not adhere to the standards. These athletes will have 36h to resubmit video – they will NOT BE ABLE TO IMPROVE THEIR SCORES. This is only for them to show that they can meet the standards. ANY NO REPS in these submissions will disqualify the athlete from competition.

If you have questions about the adjustments, please email athletesupport@reykjavikcrossfitchampionship.is

SCORE VALIDATION AND LEADERBOARD ADJUSTMENTS

The submitted scores for the 5 open workouts and the additional RCC qualifier are now under review.

We have noticed some discrepancies in the format of submissions, so if you see your score on the leaderboard and it is not reflecting your performance, please send an email to athletesupport@reykjavikcrossfitchampionship.is and we will try to get it sorted as quickly as possible. We have had a lot of “score0” submissions which we assume are mistakes during the submission on Wodcast and we will need to change these manually. Please email us with your correct score and tiebreak if applicable.

We will work towards finalizing the leaderboard early next week after a video review of top scores.
