At first, hearing and reading about Battle of the Strongest, I have thought of muscled people to fight inside a ring like wrestling, in another form - judo, and many other sport. Aside from that, I have thought that athletes will be wearing tight fit sport wear and pushing another athlete to win as the strongest. That’s how I perceived it, but thank you for the Visit Davao Summer Festival, I have learned about this fitness program and sport!

Yes, CrossFit may be very new to the ears and eyes to many here in Davao City. It is actually a fitness program wherein there are variety of movements involved. It has aspects of gymnastics, weight-lifting, running, rowing and others. It can be done by all genders!

The Battle of the Strongest CrossFit Competition 2018, as organized by CrossFit Madayaw and Visit Davao Summer Festival and sponsored by Department of Tourism, is going to happen on May 26, 2018 at Matina Town Square, Davao City. This is another event of the Visit Davao Summer Festival to promote Davao City as a sport capital during the summer season and this is on its 2nd year and the biggest CrossFit Competition in Mindanao.

How does it work? The competition is composed of mixture of gymnastics, weight-lifting, running, rowing and more. The athletes will have to get the best time, carry the heaviest weight and get the best score throughout the four (4) given workout to be declared as winner in the corresponding divisions. The ranks will then be tallied accordingly, per routine, and ranks of the athletes per workout will be computed for average to get the final rank.
