Last month we shared the news that three Sanctionals were creating the International Online Qualifier, or IOQ for short, to make it easier on the athletes looking to earn a trip to compete at a Sanctional. Now the IOQ will host the online qualifier for four Sanctionals. The SouthFit CrossFit Challenge (SCC) is the latest Sanctional to join the IOQ.

The SCC is new for the 2020 CrossFit Games season and is located in Bueno Aires, Argentina. The finals December 6-8, 2019. Just like the other Sanctionals in the IOQ, athletes must register separately and pay the registration fee to the SCC.

For the Elite individual division, registration is $25 USD while it is $80 USD for Elite teams.  The SCC is also hosting individual teens and masters competitions along with intermediate, scaled and master’s teams. To register, click here.

The IOQ calendar now looks like this:

  • International Online Qualifier
    • Week 1 (August 21-26, 2019)
    • Week 2 (August 28-September 2, 2019)
    • Week 3 (September 4-9, 2019)
  • CrossFit Filthy 150 (November 22-24, 2019 in Punchestown, Ireland)
