Set in southwestern Slovakia, the Summer Challenge is a two-day international competition that incorporates it all; weightlifting, gymnastics, endurance.
Now in its fifth year, this tough competition is open to any athlete in the world regardless of ability, background or experience level.
Nevertheless, only athletes who prove themselves in the qualifier will make it to the Summer Challenge finals, so expect the competition to be fierce.
Set on an international stage, the finals for all categories take place on July 20 and 21 in Nové Zámky, a town full of history.
This is a great challenge for athletes wanting to prove themselves in a competition that stands apart as a true test of fortitude and resolve within many disciplines.
The competition is set outdoors and, if you make it, why not turn it into a holiday – Slovakia is beautiful, especially in summer.
