Are you Ready for the Biggest Showdown?

Two game fields fully equipped by Xenios USA, the indoor arena and the outdoor stadium, are ready to host the most anxiously awaited event of the year.

The Gensan Italian Showdown is not just another competition, it’s the biggest gathering of Crossfitters and enthusiasts in Europe: just think that the video trailers of the event totaled almost 1 million views on Facebook and YouTube! What makes this competition unique? It’s simple: there are no online qualifications and all the registered athletes have direct access to the live event.


On day-1 the live selections will take place in the indoor arena; on day-2 the new outdoor stadium will be used for the workouts reserved for the Beginners; on day-3 there will be the finals. The best 40 Rx athletes and the top 10 Masters will compete for the 10.000€ cash prize offered by Gensan Integratori.

The winner of each category will also get a Compex machine valued up to 1.229€ and there will be a very special Jackpot for the winners of the last event, regardless of his/her ranking in the overall leaderboard: free admission to a CrossFit Weightlifting Course offered by Coach Burgener himself and a professional photo shoot in Milan!

Another great announcement is the first European Challenge for teenagers: all the 15-17 years old athletes will participate in the competition in the Junior division to win two 1-year Sponsoring Contracts valued at 6.000€ offered by Xenios USA.

Finally, there will be 50 additional prizes that will be awarded to the top 5 ranked athletes in each category: The Finisher’s Pack containing apparel and accessories valued at 250€ offered by sponsors and technical partners.
