ABOUT THE EVENT
A weekend long event challenging the best CrossFit Olympians in the game.
The ancient gods were highly competitive and believed strongly in the concept of “agon” or “competition” the virtue of rivalry. Rivalry and confrontation in the arena of physical development pervades the whole of the ancient gods’ civilization.
The crucial goal was to be the best. It was therefore considered one of the greatest honors to win a victory at Olympia. Participants came from every corner to lay it all on the line for the ultimate prize. The return to their city-states as heroes. The rules of the games were minimal. There were no time limits on the matches.
The athletes competed until all but one fell unconscious or were obliged to submit and admit defeat. Coincidence their concept of ‘agon’ is a letter shy of agony extreme physical or mental suffering?
