2011 Reebok CrossFit Games Scoring

By CrossFit on 07.22.11
Now, first place gets 100 points, and the winners are those with the most points in the end.

This year, we will use a new point system for scoring the 2011 Reebok CrossFit Games. Athletes and teams still receive points based on their finishing order. But now, first place gets 100 points, and the winners are those with the most points in the end. See the chart below for the full points allocation.

Unlike the Open, Regionals and last year's Games, the points will no longer equal the place the athlete earned in an event (i.e. 1st place = 1 point). Instead, first place will earn 100 points, second 95, decreasing by 5 points for each place until 6th place, after which the points decrease by 2 points per place. After 30th place, the points decrease by 1 point per place. This new system is designed to lessen the impact of cuts in the final placing of the top athletes. 

At the end of the weekend, the athlete with the most points wins. For Individuals, there will be a total of 10 scored events for a total possibility of 1,000 points for a perfect score. What constitutes a scored event will vary, and at this point, the competition's format remains a secret. It will be announced at various points between now and the end of the competition.

For individuals, there will be three opportunities for athletes to advance further into the competition. All athletes will compete in the first five scored events. The top 35 men and 35 women will compete in the 6th event. The top 24 men and 24 women will compete in the 7th event. And the top 12 men and 12 women will compete in the final events.

For Masters, the top 8 athletes from each division will compete in the Stadium on Sunday for their respective titles. 

We also have a big announcement about the team competition. The structure is substantially different from any other Affiliate Cup event we've ever done. Friday and Saturday's events now constitute a Team Qualifier. They will follow the same point format as the other divisions. But instead of trying to accumulate points toward their overall total, each and every team will be battling throughout the weekend just to be one of the top six teams at the end of Saturday.

Then, on Sunday morning, the slate is wiped clean. Just like the Olympic finals in the 100m dash, the top six teams lay it all on the line in one epic final event. One race, six lanes, and a format never before used in the Games, the winner of this final event alone will determine the 2011 Affiliate Cup champions.

In other words, the battle on Friday and Saturday is to become one of the six teams in Sunday's final. On Sunday, all six teams begin equal, there's one epic event, and it's on. Win the final event, win the Affiliate Cup.

Kidding aside, crossfit is great. Just seemed over the top w/the WR talk. Can't wait for games coverage.Tips On Cricket

Just curious. Has there been any thought about adding some way to account for "Margin of Victory" in individual events? For instance, if the first place finisher crushes the field, they get some kind of bonus points, etc. I am surprised that there has never been something like (I would think it would push athletes to push 100%). If it has been thought about, what concerns have caused you to not implement.

Looking forward to the pain! Can't Wait! (written with Bart Scott emphasis)

Just curious as to changing the scoring system for the team events if there is only 1 giant cut at the end of day 2?
Definitely digging the all or nothing on the last event for team though... going to be epic!!!

What happens to an athlete that can't do one of the required exercises prescribed? Is he/she disqualified?

Posted at 9:50 AM PDT on July 24, 2011

10 scored events for individuals? This weekend is going to be awesome! Sunday is going to be an all out brawl in every catagory across the board. Would love to see this in person, like last year... alas... deployment.

Good luck to all the athletes! I'll be cheering you on via th live feed!

The scoring for the affiliate cup is perfect. This is the way it's done in track and field. Just because you performed in the preliminaries, (that's what Friday and Saturday are) doesn't mean you'll perform in the finals on Sunday. This is the best scoring system I've seen at the games. I love it.

With 2011 scoring system, 2010 games top 5 athletes would be in the same places with Graham winning if I did the math correctly. I seems to be pretty close to last year except possibly more appealing to the fan i.e. bigger numbers means better.

Sounds like they want to ensure a dramatic finish, since that's apparently more important than a team that may actually deserve the title. Blowing away the field in all other events and then coming in second with a photo finish in the final event doesn't justify an overall second place finish. If someone or some team deserves the title, they deserve it. Screw drama. That's not what it's about...or not what it used to be about, anyway.

How long is it going to take someone to figure out the results of the previous games based on this scoring system?

Posted at 3:00 PM PDT on July 23, 2011

Wow! So there's 7 events thru Saturday and 3 on Sunday (for those who qualify)? Damn, good thing I don't have to drive myself back to Santa Cruz!

Posted at 2:42 PM PDT on July 23, 2011

WOOOOOW!!! That's all I can say about that. The affiliate cup is going to be SICK!!!

"Win the final event, win the Affiliate Cup"

Good idea since New England will have enough points going into Sundays workout to be untouchable.
