All four workouts need to be videotaped, and Masters athletes must used a registered judge for each workout and “have their performance validated by a validly licensed CrossFit affiliate in good standing.” The top 40 Masters athletes will be asked to submit one of these videos for review, or they can upload the workout videos online for judging and validation.

From the CrossFit Games:
“Masters athletes will have five scores tabulated in order to determine their final rank in the Online Qualifier: four scores from the Online Qualifier workouts and one score based on their finish in the Open. If an athlete is unable to complete a Qualifier workout, they will not receive a score for that workout and they will be ranked below every other athlete who completed the four workouts.”

Once the Masters’ videos have been reviewed, the leaderboard can be finalized. The top-20 male and female athletes in each age division will be invited to compete at the Games starting on May 5, 2016.
