Oresund Games: Strength, Honour & Crossfit in Sweden

Compete in a 2-day competition on the 17-18th September in Malmö, Sweden and win an Eleiko XF bar together with prize-money.

‘Oresund Games 2016 – Powered by Eleiko – Is a challenging individual competition, which always strives for innovation and excellence.’

As well as classical tests of functional fitness, this year also sees the introduction of the ThoraxTrainer!

The ThoraxTrainer imitates Nordic Skiing, which is considered to be one of the toughest sports in the world, and an outstanding test of endurance and strength. ThoraxTrainer is even more realistic that other skiing simulators, and demands core strength as much as cardio and endurance. ThoraxTrainer has never been tested before in functional fitness competitions. As an organizer, and from a programmer’s point of view, I’m very excited to see how well strong functional fitness athletes will perform during this event.

THE ORESUND GAMES

Oresund Games is an intense Box-competition at Kronan CrossFit, held in the world’s first Eleiko certified Training facility. This mega-box is located in Malmö, Sweden, and contains a competition arena that gives you a very passionate experience, with hundreds of spectators sitting close to the athletes, and right next to the action.  Last year we aimed for quality, preferring to squeeze in another event rather than opening up for more competitors. This year will be more of the same: Quality over Quantity!

In 2015 we had both swimming and a very challenging hill run, combined with classic functional fitness events in our box. This mixture created a varied and rewarding competition for everyone involved.

This year we will have the following divisions:

  • Women Intermediate – 28 spots (First prize 1 Eleiko XF bar)
  • Women newcomers – 42 spots
  • Men RX – 42 spots (First prize 1 Eleiko XF bar)
  • Men intermediate – 42 spots

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.
