After a 3 year absence due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Street Workout Hong Kong (SWHK) hosted the Hong Kong Street Workout Championship 2023 on June 18th.
The competition sees groups divided into men’s open, women’s open, as well as rookie groups for both sexes. Each group features gold, silver and bronze medalists, as well as prizes for “the best fancy dynamic movement/power dynamic movement/static movement”
And what do they win?
Aside from the prestige that winning any tournament gives, the top two mens and women’s athletes in the open tournament will be eligible to represent Hong Kong in the World Street Workout Championships 2023 to be held in Latvia on August 22.
The World Street workout Championships have been held annually since 2011, including during the pandemic. This will be the first time that they have been hosted in Latvia.
Aside from representing Hong Kong winners will also receive gifts from the event sponsors, which include sports fashion apparel brand Desportol. Desportol have recently made waves in Cambodia where they are now providing sports kit and apparel to a number of clubs and national associations.
