Time to submit your score
How much time do I have to do each Open is an often repeated question.
Scores must be uploaded to the games.crossfit.com web site on Monday at 6:00 p.m. PT. I recommend googling "6:00 pm PT in your city" to avoid calculation errors. In Spain it corresponds to 2:00 am Tuesday.
Any score outside these hours will not be accepted.
