The 2021 CrossFit Open - Don't Forget To Submit Your Scores!

Sounds simple, right? JUST DON'T FORGET TO DO IT! The easiest way to remember? Right when you finish doing the workout and you get your scorecard from your judge, head over to your phone or a nearby computer and put it in right then and there.

Athletes must have their scores confirmed either by performing the workout at a validly licensed CrossFit affiliate in good standing under the observation of a judge or by uploading a video of their workout to the CrossFit Games website. 

Scores then will be validated either by an affiliate manager (for non-video submissions) or the CrossFit Games internal review team (for video submissions). 

Even if you're planning to do the workout again (and again, and again), it is seriously SO easy to forget to submit your open score. And trust us, the last feeling you need after all your hard work and dedication is the shame, guilt, and disappointment of submitting your score. Even if you're going to finish last on the leaderboard, be like Nike, JUST DO IT. Okay? Okay. SUBMIT YOUR SCORE HERE.
