OFFICIAL STATEMENT REGARDING CORONA VIRUS (CONTINUED)

Dear fellow athletes, volunteers, staff members and spectators,

it is with a very heavy heart that we have to announce that we will postpone the Austrian Throwdown from 2020 to 2021. We had intense talks with every party involved and tried to weigh out the best solution for the event. Since there is no valid statement from government officials for a time frame longer than 4 weeks in the future and a clear message issued that there won’t be a chance to hold events until September, we ran out of options on how to carry on planning the ATD for this year. 

We have a clear vision what the Austrian Throwdown should be: the biggest, most professional planned and executed CrossFit event in Austria. With the current situation we weren’t able to keep up our planned quality and style you are used to see from us. So we decided to move the event from 22nd and 23rd August, 2020 to a date exactly one year later to the original date: June 12th and 13th 2021 at the Arena Nova Wiener Neustadt.

 

ATHLETES / QUALIFIER / FEES REFUND

We decided to sketch out various options for athletes:

  1. Leave your qualifier spot valid for 2021. We will redo the qualifier with three new workouts in 2021 and we will just „transfer“ the Qualifier Event on Competition Corner to 2021. So your registration will stay active and we will only remove the WODs and your already entered scores. There won’t be any additional fees or hidden extra costs. You can just enter your Scores for the 2021 edition when we will announce three brand new workouts.
  2. Opt out of the qualifier and send a refund request for the fee. Please note that your Competition Corner fees are non refundable and 50% of the net qualifier fee will be kept for the arosen circumstances
  3. Donate your 2020 qualifier fee to help us keep the event up and running for the future and participate in the 2021 qualifier while paying the regular 2021 fee. We’ll work out some “surprise thank you” gifts for you.

OFFICIAL STATEMENT REGARDING CORONA VIRUS (CONTINUED)

As the Austrian government announced last week, there won’t be any major (indoor) events allowed till August 31st, 2020. Since the last update, our date has been postponed to August 22nd and 23rd, 2020, and that means we see little chance to get the event up and running at this point in August.

We decided to give us and our core crew some weeks to reflect on the actual status, take a deep breath and check out all alternatives on how to make the Austrian Throwdown 2020 happen. Believe us: we are devastated on how this corona pandemy has the world in its grip. Please bare with us. These are really mentally, socially and of course financially hard times we are going through - but we are confident that we will come up with a solution for this problem, one way or the other. Remember: When life knocks you down - do a burpee!

QUALIFIER DEADLINES / DATE
Everything regarding the event is postponed until further notice. Please bare with us and check back soon.

A LIL’ BIT OF INFORMATION

Why not organizing our own CrossFit competition? This is the question we asked ourselves for the first time at the beginning of 2015. A competition for our own athletes to compete with others, well-organized, sporty and at the same time a meeting place for the Austrian CrossFit community. And if so, how can we name the event? How do you do that anyway?

We answered these and many, many other questions in the following months and in June 2015 we ran our first own CrossFit event, the Hypertrophy. Athletes from all over Austria came to Wiener Neustadt and demonstrated their skills in a one-day event. The event was a great success with sporting excellence and cheerful spectators and fans and that of course has made us want more.

That’s why we immediately started planning the next event for 2016, bigger, more demanding and more varied. The exhibition area was expanded and an outdoor event was carried out the first time. As there was not enough room in the former location for the many, exciting exhibitors and visitors, we dared to step into the largest of the event halls in the Arena Nova in 2017, where we offered the visitors a complete grandstand and could offer a bigger competition- and warm-up area for our athletes.

After three years with exclusively Austrian athletes, we decided in 2018 to open the Hypertrophy also for international athletes, to make the competition more interesting and diversified and could welcome athletes from 6 different nations in Wiener Neustadt in the first year.

After four years, the Hypertrophy had grown into an event that did not need to shy away from international comparison: a great field of participants, a well-filled exhibition area, livestream and an event team that still plans and works with the same passion. In order to better integrate the event into the European scene and to further the process of “growing up”, we have decided to completely redesign and rename the Hypertrophy in 2019.

That was the birth of the “Austrian Throwdown”. With this new appearance, we are entering our sixth year as CrossFit competition.

More flavor. Less sugar.

Imagine there was something you could snack on without feeling guilty afterward. Something that gave you energy, filled you up, and tasted great. Well now there is! NEOH is a CrossBar that has the same great nutritional values as a protein bar yet tastes like a candy bar.
