APPEALING A SCORE
Community competition appeals submitted via Competition Corner. Elite competition appeal forms available from athlete control.
Both the Community competition, and the Elite Competition will utilise the same appeals process as laid out in Section 4.10 of the 2023 CrossFit Games Rulebook as seen below:
4.10 - SEMIFINALS - INDIVIDUALS & TEAMS - APPEALS
Athletes or team captains should file onsite appeals, test protests, or scoring questions with the Head Judge or Athlete Control lead immediately following the event or at the earliest possible opportunity. Coaches are welcome to be involved with the appeals process but only after the completion of the event and in conjunction with the athlete.
Judgment calls made during an event are final and not negotiable or subject to change, modification, or appeal. In addition, athletes may not protest discrepancies related to the judging, scoring, or performance of another athlete or team.
An athlete or team CANNOT appeal live judgment calls and no reps by the judge. Common examples include, but are not limited to:
Most range of motion faults (end ranges of rep) such as:
Depth of a squat
Extension of hips, knees, or arms
Stabilization of a lift or equipment overhead
Examples of events or actions an athlete or team CAN appeal include:
Scorecard or leaderboard data inconsistencies or errors
Counting inconsistencies or errors (i.e., the total number of repetitions completed was incorrect)
Loading inconsistencies or errors
Course markings or directional inconsistencies or errors
Equipment or monitor failure that was not the responsibility of athlete
Miscommunication by a judge regarding movement standards, or event order or direction.
Action of another athlete or person that impeded the athlete’s progress
Two appeal rule:
Athletes/teams will start the competition with two appeals.
Following each test, athletes/teams have the option to appeal (see eligible list above).
If after investigation the appeal is granted, the athlete/team will retain their appeal count.
If after investigation the appeal is denied, the athlete/team will lose one appeal from their appeal count.
If an athlete/team exhausts their appeal count, they will not be allowed to make any other appeals over the remainder of the competition.
Missing mandatory competition responsibilities such as athlete registration or test briefings may result in a loss of an appeal at the Head Judge’s discretion.

MANAGING YOUR TEAM
For the community competition:
In the event of injury or some other circumstance beyond your control, teams may substitute a total of one athlete on their team roster. In the event more than one athlete from the original team of 4 who qualified through the Torian Pro Online Qualifier is unable to compete, the team will be ineligible to compete at the Torian Pro. To make a substitution please email email@example.com with details including full name and email address.
For the Elite Competition:
Before the start of the Semifinals competition, any two men and two women from the team’s competition roster (designated before the Quarterfinals) will check in onsite and compete. As long as the two men and two women checking in at Semifinals are part of the team’s competition roster, they may be different from the two men and women who completed the Quarterfinals. Once the two men and two women have checked in onsite, no other athletes will be involved in any way in the onsite check-in process, nor will they be eligible to compete at Semifinals. The remaining members of the team’s competition roster may only be used should a team member be unexpectedly injured or forced to withdraw prior to check in at the Semifinal event.
