The 2020 CrossFit Sanctionals season officially begins tonight! At 8pm Eastern, the workouts for Week 1 of the International Online Qualifier (IOQ) are released.

The IOQ is the online qualifier for four Sanctional events this season.

Athletes wanting to compete at one or more of these Sanctionals must register and compete in the IOQ workouts. Athletes must register for each Sanctional separately (and submit scores separately), but they will only have to do the workouts once.

The live announcement of the Week 1 workouts will be tonight at 8pm Eastern. We already know WOD 1 as it was released last week.
