Crossfit has landed at the Camp Nou. A few weeks ago, one of today's trendiest sports took center stage at Barça's facilities when various Crossfit athletes paid a visit. Among the crosfitters who came were Mat Fraser (the strongest man in the world), Lukas Högberg (the third strongest man in the world), Laura Horvath (the second strongest woman in the world), Sara Sigmundsdottir (one of the most inspiring Nike Training athletes) and Sol Sigurdardottir (a women's Nike Training Athlete).
The visit was part oft he 4th edition of the Fittest Freakest Challenge, a competition between national teams held last January at Barcelona's Club Sant Jordi, which Nike helped organize. Nike and FC Barcelona offered the crossfitters the chance to create unique, Barça style training experience with a visit to the Club's installations.
The crossfitters had a private tour of the Camp Nou, and got to see the press room, the benches, the press interview area, the grandstand, the locker room tunnel, and the field. They also visited the Club's training ground at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper, where they participated in various Training Challenges and activities specially prepared for them. Among the Challenges in which the crossfitters tested their football skills were the Rondo, Hit the Crossbar, and Precision Passing. See the video below for a look at their visit to Barça.
