The iF3 2020 Masters’ World Cup is an open competition for athletes ages 30+ . The competition consists of an online qualifier phase in September followed by a live but virtual final in November.

Online Qualifier Phase September 1 through 30th 2020
Live Final For the Top 5 in Each Age Bracket November 20-22nd 2020
Register: LINK COMING SOON
Winners of each Age Bracket will win a spot to 2020/21 iF3 Worlds in Portugal, which will take place June 2021.
- The spot goes to the individual athlete. This spot will NOT count against the total number of spots allotted to your country for Masters Worlds.
- If an athlete wins a spot through the World Cup but has previously been given a spot to Masters’ Worlds through their Federation, the spot earned from the Masters’ World Cup will take precedence over the National Federation spot, and thus the National Federation will be able to select an additional athlete to send to Masters’ Worlds in that age group.
- If the winning athlete chooses not to attend Worlds in Portugal the spot will not pass down to the next athlete.
How it Works
This is an individual competition only
Online Qualifier Stage: Athletes will complete 6 tests (one in each of the iF3 Individual Medley Test Categories) over the course of the qualifying period. All 6 tests will be released at once and athletes may choose when and in what order to complete the tests. All scores must be submitted online by September 30th. Athletes must submit a video of their online test performances.
Live Final: The top 5 athletes in each age division will be invited to participate in a Live Final. Athletes will participate from their home gym with a technical official present to count their repetitions and record their scores. Athletes will be required to sign in to the steaming platform and will compete head to head with the other finalists in their age group.
- The final will be 90 mins long and athletes will complete 4 tests in that block of time.
- Tests will be released in advance and athletes will be expected to show up to the final warmed up and with their equipment set up and ready to go. Athletes will be instructed on appropriate equipment configuration.
- An MC/Announcer will start the athletes on each test and maintain the flow of the competition.
