The TORIAN PRO is the premier functional fitness festival in Australia. This event is for CrossFit athletes all around the world to compete and show what they are made of from all their hard work over the year, or even years!
And a side note, I’ve been doing the CrossFit open myself the last two weeks and it’s hard work! I can only say all athletes competing are definitely not heading down for a tea party, it’s definitely not an event to miss.
It has featured some of the most recognised and accomplished CrossFit athletes on the planet and continues to deliver an exhilarating and unique experience for athletes and spectators.
The Torian Pro – now in its fifth year – is the self-proclaimed “premier functional fitness festival in Australia.”
CrossFit Torian co-owner Johno Snape said: “It has always been our goal to feature some of the most recognised and accomplished CrossFit athletes on the planet as well as delivering an exhilarating and unique experience for athletes and spectators.”
More than one thousand amateur athletes competed in an online qualifier for their chance to “throwdown” with the Fittest on Earth.
From 8-10 November, 542 athletes will compete at the Queensland Tennis Centre across eight divisions from beginners to elite, teams, pairs and individuals.
“We’ve always been about community and allowing our local CrossFit athletes the chance to throw down on the big stage,” Mr Snape added.The event outgrew its capacity at its Bowen Hills venue, prompting the move of competition to the Queensland Tennis Centre.
The Pat Rafter Arena can facilitate an extra one thousand spectators, which organisers expect to be a sell-out. Major sponsors include Reebok and Red Bull, with the event to be live streamed around the world. The Queensland Government, through Tourism and Events Queensland, and Brisbane City Council, through Brisbane Marketing, is proud to be supporting at the 2019 Torian Pro, which features on the It’s Live! in Queensland events calendar.
