COMPETE LIVE!® ATHENS is Shaking Up the Throwdown Model

Compete Live!® Athens is a 3 day event across 3 different sports venues (football field, athletics stadium and swimming pavilion) set in Piraeus, the most historic part of ancient Athens.

It takes place on 28th, 29th and 30th of JUNE 2019. 

Rejecting qualifying videos, they allow all athletes to show up and throw down. Every competitor will experience Games-like events, top professional judging and facilities and unique WODs under the Greek sun.

All athletes must complete a minimum of 5 WODs over the 3 days, and all results will be electrically scored. This allows everyone to easily follow the leaderboard and experience competition at a high level of professionalism, without being shut out by the standards of Sanctionals®. 

Anyone familiar with the-sport-of-fitness’s exercises can choose one of the 3+1 categories, register and “Compete Live®” at the 3-day event in this beautiful location.
