CrossFit HQ Dishes Out Multiple Penalties for Open Workout 20.5

The final round of Open workout penalties has caused some shifts on the leaderboard.

The final round of penalties have been announced for the 2020 CrossFit Open. Over the weekend, CrossFit HQ disclosed that 15 athletes have received penalties for their Open Workout 20.5 video submissions. 

For the 2020 CrossFit Open, CrossFit HQ requires the top 40 male and female athletes to submit videos of their workout performances for official review. Since the first week, multiple top athletes have been hit with major and minor penalties, and this week — we’re seeing a couple athletes shift on the leaderboard due to the nature of their penalties. 

One of these athletes includes Logan Collins, who last week, openly disclosed that he had been issued a major penalty and has submitted an appeal to HQ. As of right now, CrossFit HQ has not issued any reversal of penalties for his appeal. 

From CrossFit HQ’s recent press release, there are 15 athletes in total receiving penalties. Of these 15 penalties, 6 athletes have been given a major penalty and 9 have received minor penalties. Check out the full list below.
