The seventh CrossFit Sanctionals competition kicks off this weekend from the snowy mountains in Gol, Norway, and yes, we literally mean mountains.
That’s right, the Norwegian CrossFit Championship is taking place in the snowy mountains of Norway. From their site’s description of the location they write, “Our arena is located about 2,5 hours from Oslo in an area called Gol. When you arrive in Gol, you drive 4km up a mountain 1001m ASL to our arena at Storefjell Resort.”
The Norwegian CrossFit Championship kicks off on February 14th and will run through the 16th. As with other Sanctionals competitions, the top placing elite male, female, and team will earn an invite to the 2020 Reebok CrossFit Games. There are a few big named athletes in the mix and this Sanctionals is sure to be an exciting one.
