CROSSFIT 4 FRIENDS ARE CROWNED CHAMPIONS OF THE FREAKEST CHALLENGE 2019

THE BRUTAL FINAL WAS DECIDED IN THE LAST REP

Noise, lots of noise! The fourth edition of The Freakest Challenge was a wild show in which more than 1,800 members of the Freakest Community made tremble the legendary Sant Jordi Club Barcelona.

After three weeks of online qualifiers (with up to 42 boxes participating), we discovered the 8 best teams that would reach this brutal final in which, in addition, we had 5 of the best world's Nike athletes as guests: Matt Fraser, Laura Horvath, Sara Sigmundsdottir, Lukas Högberg and Sol Sigurdardottir came to challenge to several volunteers from the public and to encourage to all the competitors surrounded by "batukadas", light shows, the enthusiasm of the speaker Jordi Serra and the motivating music session of Enzo Smile DJ.

A powerful show to push the emotions of this Freakest Challenge to the limit:

Athletes from Crossfit 77 Feet, Crossfit 4 Friends, Crossfit Area, Box Dir Maragall, Món Crossfit, Crossfit Girona, Crossfit Riders and Crossfit Quo Lab were tested in two qualifier WODs grouped by raffle.

QUALIFIER WODs:

Box Dir Maragall vs Crossfit Area

Crossfit Quo Lab VS Crossfit 4 Friends

Crossfit 77 Feet VS Món Crossfit

Crossfit Girona VS Crossfit Riders

Two first two WODs served as eliminatory to define the final confrontations. In the tie cases (each team wins a WOD), the tie-breaker was an exciting battle of maximum unbroken double unders. This was the case for CF 77 Feet VS Món CF and for Area CF VS Box Dir Maragall.

SEMIFINAL WOD:

Crossfit VS Crossfit 4 Friends Area

Món Crossfit VS Crossfit Riders

For time:

Each athlete 12 m handstand Walk

Yoke Carry & Farmer Carry

80 Synchro Toes to Bar *

Yoke Carry & Farmer Carry

Each athlete 12 m handstand Walk

* Penalty: 1 rope climb legless for each athlete

The victory of CF 4 Friends came with the hard legless rope climbs, where the Area CF team lost all the advantage they got in the strongman part by reaching the feared rope climbing muscle failure.

In the face-to-face between Món CF and CF Riders, the thing was not so hard-fought as the Riders took advantage from the beginning and extended till the end. 

FINAL WOD:

Crossfit 4 Friends VS Crossfit Riders

For time:

12 synchro stone box overs 75 / 50kg

12 hang squat clean 75 / 50kg

12 synchro stone box overs

12 synchro shoulder to oh 75 / 50kg

12 synchro ring muscle up

The level of the athletes was as high as the exigencies of the final WOD (designed like all others by the renowned Marc Ordeig); from the beginning of the workout, every rep and no-rep was battled, but it was Damian Martinez, Fabian Beneito, Elena Carratalá and Sara Valera from CF 4 Friends who were proclaimed champions of The Freakest Challenge 2019 completing the 12 synchro ring muscle up before anyone their opponents. Congratulations, Freaks!
