Gensan Italian Showdown 2017: 1,000 Competitors Live!

The second edition of the biggest live event in Europe will take place on 28-29-30 April 2017 in a 75,000sqm village beside the international airport of Milan MXP, fully equipped with two game fields to host one-thousand athletes fighting for a total prize of 25.000 euro.

What makes the Gensan Italian Showdown® 2017 a unique competition? There are no online qualifications: all the subscribers have direct access to the live event, this means that 1.000 competitors will be on site, resulting in the biggest gathering of Crossfitters and enthusiasts in Europe!

And there are no strategies or tricks to choose the easiest category, nor disputed qualifying videos: all the competitors are admitted to the on-site selections and will face the same three workouts in a unique Open category. At the end of the first day, the ranking of each athlete will establish his skill level: Rx’d, Scaled or Beginner.

During the first edition, over 5.000 people attended the event in 3 days, and the videos of the competition got over 350.000 views on Facebook in just 2 months!

The second edition will be even bigger: there will be two game fields and a total prize valued at over 25.000 euro.

The Gensan Italian Showdown® 2017 is made possible by 33 CrossFit Affiliates who joined to organize a great event for all the Community, resulting in one of the biggest examples of crowd-funding and crowd-sourcing project in the fitness industry.

About The Author

Editor-In-Chief at BOXROX. I come from a background of rugby and weightlifting. Growing up in the English Lake District, I spent a great deal of time swimming in its stunning lakes and rivers. In 2015 my brothers and I became the first people to swim the 145km length of the River Eden, from source to mouth, in 9 days. We also swam the Corryvreckan whirlpool, the third largest in the world, and Crossfit is a huge part of my training for these events.
