140 crossfit athletes head to Geneva for the Lake Throwdown

Mid Morning Mix // Sport // Aug. 4, 2017

'Geneva Fitness Games' is a non-profit association who create and organise sports events to raise funds and raise awareness of charitable associations such as the Foundation Theodora or Courir Ensemble.

Following last year's success of the first ever LAKE THROWDOWN, organised by the association, this year's event will take place amongst the Fête de Gèneve celebrations at the Quai Gustave-Ador on the 5th & 6th August.

The competition will bring 140 athletes together from Switzerland and abroad, for 2 days of challenges.

We spoke to Fred Deuwal, Founder & President of the Geneva Fitness Games about what you can expect to see at the Lake Throwdown this coming weekend...

EDIT: If you missed the event, check out the video from this year!
