Qualification requirements


There are no specific requirements for the arrangement of equipment and exercise execution. As long as the performance presented by the athlete is assessable and the viewing angle of the exercises is suitable for objective judgment, the video is considered appropriate and accepted.

The athlete is responsible for performing the tasks in safe conditions. In the event of any accident or injury, the athlete bears sole responsibility.

The three qualification task sets must be recorded in three separate videos.

It is strongly recommended that the qualification video be recorded in the presence of at least two assistants: one to judge the athlete and another to monitor the recording and assist with the setup required for the tasks.

When reviewing the qualification videos, we will apply "minor penalty" and "major penalty" methods for errors.

  • "Minor penalty": If there are 11 to 15 "no rep" invalid repetitions, a 20% score deduction or a similar level of negative correction will be applied to the athlete's score in that task set.
  • "Major penalty": If there are 16 or more "no rep" invalid repetitions, a 50% score deduction or a similar level of negative correction will be applied to the athlete's score in that task set.
  • 1-10 "no rep": point deduction from the score.
  • 11-15 "no rep": Minor penalty, 20% deduction from the entire task result.
  • 16+ "no rep": Major penalty, 50% deduction from the entire task result.

Athletes must submit their scores and videos by May 26, 2024, at 11:59 PM local time! The athletes are solely responsible for submitting the tasks on time and successfully. Incomplete or non-functional videos will not be accepted. Late submissions and score submissions are not allowed.

Athletes may perform and submit the tasks as many times as they like before the deadline.

After the deadline for task submissions, athletes cannot change or resubmit their scores.

The chief judge team will validate all final scores.

Athletes must follow the guidelines outlined by Hungarian Throwdown (HUNTD) in this guide and in each qualifying video.

Repetitions, exercises, or workouts that do not follow these standards or are not clearly visible may result in a "NO REP" invalid judgment.

Submitting scores: Upload your videos to YouTube. Public privacy settings. If there are copyright issues, please remove the sound from the video. Then log in to the HUNTD website and submit your scores and video links.

  • Athletes must submit their scores by the deadline, May 26, 2024, at 11:59 PM local time. Late submissions are not allowed.
  • After the first processing, we will display the received results on the website starting from the first weekend of the qualification period! (Leaderboard)
  • At the beginning of the video, introduce yourself and clearly show the equipment and competition field on camera.
  • Record all competition area measurements to ensure distances and weights are clearly visible.
  • You can move the camera according to the designated settings and placement guide as long as it meets video and motion standards.
  • Don't place the camera too low to the ground. It is recommended to place the camera at least 90 cm from the ground.
  • Videos must be uncut and unedited to accurately reflect performance.
  • Playlists may be rejected.

The clock or timer must be visible during the tasks.

  • The use of the wodproof video recording app with a built-in timer is highly recommended.
  • Videos shot with a fisheye lens or similar lens may be rejected.
  • Don't use countdown timers.
  • Ensure that every part of the performance, such as numbers on the rowing machine screen, lines, etc., is clearly visible. If not, a 20% penalty will be applied to the score.
  • Improper use of equipment or intentional omission/failure to complete repetitions may result in severe penalties, including a 50% deduction from the total score or complete disqualification.
  • Ensure that the judge does not obstruct the athlete's visibility and auditability.


For Hungarian Throwdown qualification videos, the CrossFit Games video requirements apply, which include (but are not limited to):

  • The athlete's introduction, equipment, and measurements should be presented at the beginning of the video recording.
  • The athlete must remain in the camera's field of view throughout the exercise execution, ensuring all key points of the specific movements are visible.
  • The timer must be visible in the video throughout the task.
  • A camera-based timer application (e.g., wodproof) can be used.
  • Exercises should be filmed facing the camera or from a 45-degree front-side angle.
  • The ideal camera position is at least 90 cm above the ground. A horizontal 16:9 format is recommended.
  • It is possible to follow the athlete with the camera during the tasks, adhering to the above requirements.
  • The rowing machine display should be shown clearly when the athlete is nearing the final calories until the specified amount is reached on the display counter.

General safety and execution rules apply to all tasks (not exclusive):

  • Weight clamps are mandatory for every repetition in weightlifting tasks. They should always be placed on the outermost part and secure the plates in place.
  • Throwing the barbell backward is invalid execution.
  • Full extension in the joints is required to achieve valid finishing positions.
  • In the wall ball exercise, the ball must definitely touch the target above the specified height.

In the "A" qualification wod:

  • The score for this task is the number of valid repetitions completed.
  • Only repetitions completed within the 60-second windows are valid.
  • If an athlete's last repetition in a given round makes contact with the target outside of the time window, and the athlete still counts it as valid, any subsequent repetitions are considered invalid, ending the task both in terms of score and result.

In the "B" qualification wod:

  • Any attempt can be made within the time frame.
  • An attempt started within the time frame can be completed outside the time frame.
  • A valid start is when the barbell is lifted to the lap.
  • Throwing backward is invalid execution.
  • Failed attempts can be corrected as long as the barbell does not fall below knee height.
  • The legs and arms must not touch during execution.
  • The barbell cannot be held behind the neck.

In the "C" qualification wod:

  • The athlete begins the task seated on the rowing machine. The athlete can reach for the handle and start the wod after the starting signal.
  • The dumbbell can be stored on the upper surface of the box.
  • During handstand presses, the athlete's side must be visible in the camera to ensure the correct torso extension and to monitor any potential wall contact.
  • For lifting movements from the ground to overhead, either snatches or clean and jerk variations are allowed.
  • The two dumbbells must not touch each other in the overhead finishing position.
