Event Details

Cyprus Throwdown 2020 will take place in Limassol, Cyprus from the 2nd to the 4th of October 2020.

After long consideration and after assessing the latest updates in regards to the spread of COVID-19 in Cyprus and the governmental announcements, we decided to move forward and organise Cyprus Throwdown 2020. This year, the event will be an exclusive TEAMS EDITION competition.

Our decision to hold the event is based mainly to the fact that Cyprus has successfully dealt with the pandemic and is now ready to welcome travelers from various countries as well as to the fact the Cyprus Throwdown is an outdoor competition.

REGISTRATIONS & DIVISIONS

There will be no qualifiers for the Cyprus Throwdown 2020. Registration will be on a first come first served basis. The registration window will open on 08/06/2020, at 14:00 Cyprus time, and it will remain open until spots sold out.

The following divisions are available:

In all divisions, the only limitation is that each TEAM should consist only from athletes having their permanent residency in the same country.

In the Masters divisions, cumulative means the sum of both athletes ages. For example, a 47 years old athlete can pair with a 37 years old athlete and compete in Masters 80-99 since the sum of their age is 84.

CYPRUS and COVID-19

Our decision to hold the event is based mainly to the fact that Cyprus has successfully dealt with the pandemic and is now ready to welcome travelers from various countries we will explain below as well as to the fact the Cyprus Throwdown is an outdoor competition.

Cyprus stands out internationally as an example for successfully handling the COVID 19 pandemic highlighting the importance of responding timely and in a responsible manner. Having successfully dealt with the pandemic, Cyprus is the only country in the EU besides Malta to have tested more than 12 per cent of its population for the coronavirus. At the same time, Cyprus has recorded one of the smallest number of coronavirus cases and number of deaths ratio per population, since the government and the society worked extremely hard to contain the spread of the virus.

As it was announced last week, Cyprus is now ready to welcome travelers from various countries. Savvas Perdios, the deputy tourism minister, said: “We will cover the cost of hospitalisation of those who test positive during their holiday. And pay for their families and close contacts to be accommodated in quarantine hotels.”

Additionally, another reason we decided to hold the event is the fact that Cyprus Throwdown is an outdoor competition. However, we are aware that we will have to work under some disruptive social distancing measures as well as to implement in our structure additional health and safety policies and hygiene measures, mainly to protect your health and safety but also to comply with the legal framework set by the Cyprus government.

In this context, Cyprus Throwdown 2020 will be run in an adaptive mode in order to secure your health and safety and to provide you a hygienic environment to compete. The major step, among other steps that we will be taking for your health and safety that we will be announcing soon, is the fact that we will use 2 different stations in the arena for the heats to alternate in order to have enough time for the decontamination of each station as well the equipment assigned to it.

Unfortunately, our equipment, time and human resources are limited to organise the event as normal and at the same time to comply with all these requirements. Therefore, the application of those measures would result to a very limited number of athletes attending the finals unless a different format will be followed.

And this is why we decided for the Cyprus Throwdown 2020 to be a TEAMS EDITION competition. Although the teams competition may sound extreme under the current social distancing measures, the workouts format and the setup of the arena that we are planning would allow us to comply with health and safety policies and hygiene measures.
