The RingFit Olympics will take place over a period of 3 weekends in July and August, when the official Olympics were originally to be held.
The event dates are as follows:
July 25th, 2020 – 3pm EDT | Opening ceremonies and Round One
August 1st, 2020 – 3pm EDT | Round Two
August 8th, 2020 – 3pm EDT |Round Three and closing ceremonies
Over the course of the 3 weeks our 15 competitors will compete live in one RingFit minigame, and one quick exercise. Scores will be established using the in-game ranking system of D though S, where ranks will be assigned a point value, and the point value will be added to the team score. For example, if one of the athletes scores an A rank on an activity, they would score 4 points. Their 4 point score would be added to the overall team score. The highest overall team score at the end of the third weekend takes home the gold!
The event will take place on Twitch.tv/CptnAlex
When we say take home the gold, we really mean it! Our athletes will be competing for a a chance at taking home real RingFit Olympic medals, in gold, silver and bronze!
