The Individual Intercontinental Championships will win a spot to 2021 iF3 World Championships in Australia.
- The spot goes to the individual athlete. This spot will NOT count against the total number of spots allotted to your country for 2021 Worlds.
- If an athlete wins a spot through the Continental Cup but has previously been given a spot to 2021 Worlds through their Federation, the spot earned from the Continental 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 2021 Worlds.
- If the winning athlete chooses not to attend Worlds in Australia the spot will not pass down to the next athlete.
- Team athletes will be competing for the title of Intercontinental Team Champions and a prize package from our sponsors.
Each round will be a live streamed competition. Athletes participate at their own gyms around the world and will need to have a technical official on site to count their repetitions and record their scores. Each round of competition is 2 hours long and athletes will complete 6 scored tests in that 2 hours.
- Preliminary Round: Athletes will compete in sessions, which are assigned based on their continent. Sessions will be at a specific time where the athletes will login to the streaming platform to compete and the competition will last 2 hours. Over the 2 hours athletes will perform 6 tests, one in each of the iF3 categories. The top 3 athletes/teams from each session will move on the final.
- Final round: The final will follow the same structure, but will contain the top finishers from each continental session.
- Team athletes will need to be present in the same physical location for the team division.
- Tests will be released in advance and athletes will be expected to login to the streaming platform with their equipment set up and warmed up and ready to begin the competition at the assigned time.
