Athlete Divisions:

Video evidence may be requested from top athletes.

Athletes can form teams. Teams can form teams of two. The team format will be of the same gender. 

This competition is scored individually, according to gender. 

Concept2 (PM5) Indoor Rowers must be used according to the WODPROOF app’s instructions. Competitors may use the damper setting of their choice. 

Leaderboard and Scoring Validation:

Once the score submission period has closed, no workout scores may be entered. There will be no exceptions.

Individual athletes will be ranked in each event. Scoring will be based on an athlete’s relative rank, that is their rank when compared to the performance of other athletes.

Ties will not be broken for single event results. More than one athlete can share an event ranking, and each will earn the original point value. The athlete with the top score across multiple events in a category wins that category.

These points will be used to rank the athletes and teams on the leaderboard. Ties on the overall leaderboard will be broken by awarding the best position to the athlete who has the highest result in any single event. If athletes remain tied after this first tiebreaker, the process continues to their next highest single result, and so forth.

The competition will only count full second results. Tenth of a second results will not count for the sake of the competition. For example, a time of 1:29.6 will be listed on the leaderboard as 1:29.
