  During the weekend of July 12 and 13, Crossgen was present in Lisbon at the first stage of the Kings of WOD, the latest and most innovating fitness competition for High Intensity Training athletes, with participants from all over the world. As Golden Sponsor of the event, Crossgen represented the Viking tribe with three sponsored athletes fighting for the title, and all three of them were awarded for their efforts.
