Crossgen, the Kings of WOD, Lisbon

 

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.

The event also featured an exposition, where Crossgen presented their product line dedicated to professional High Intensity Training athletes, as well as their equipment and accessories.

The competition, being the main point of attention, was made up of 6 WODs. All were designed with attention to detail not to be mere tests of strength, but also of agility, resistance and coordenation.

Along with the spectacular show in the arena, the whole atmosphere, the setting, as well as artists and musicians, took the spectators on a real journey through time.

Carmen Bosmans couldn’t have done a better job at defending her Celtic tribe, as she was ultimately crowned Queen of WOD.

Lacee Kovacs was present to represent his Barbaric tribe, but he did not compete. Could it have been an injury, or was it a strategic move of his?

To the audience’s surprise, Oksana Slivenko, who ultimately got 2nd place in the Elite Female category, was there to present the new tribe called The Slavic Force.

Which of the tribes will persevere in the end, remains to be seen.

The second round is to be held in September, in Madrid. So as a final note for now: Play hard, and Fear No WOD.
