All competitors will be placed.

For the Video, if you are using your phone, hold it upright (or vertically). We will be putting together a Contest Coverage and Results video for every online competition.

To validate the date we will need one photo of you holding a piece of paper with the code word on it. We will be emailing the code word out to all the athletes late the evening before the online competition.
