Moritz Fiebig and Elisa Fuliano Win the 2022 German Throwdown

The German Throwdown, one of the most well respected competitions on the European scene, came to its epic conclusion over the weekend. Some of Europe’s elite descended on Mainz in Germany to take part in one of the longest running events on the continent.

Saturday kicked off with four scored events with a two-parter on Event One of an AMRAP into an EMOM, a frantic 8 round ‘for time’ workout followed by Acid Bath. Consistency took pride of place as The Progrm’s Moritz Fiebig went to bed sitting on top of the men’s leaderboard on Saturday night after two second place finishes along with a 3rd and 4th finish helped him to a one point lead over Antoine Dumain with Sven Geens in third place. On the female side Noortje Bleeker from CrossFit Westenwind had a 6-point lead on Saturday night over Marie Robin and CrossFit Games veteran Elisa Fuliano.

On Sunday morning the athletes were treated to a chipper with heavy dumbbells and another two part workout on the bar and C2 bike. Fuliano showed her class over the weekend to stand on top of the podium on Sunday evening with 5 event wins over the two days leaving her ahead of Noortje Bleeker and France’s Robin who held onto their podium places from Saturday.

Fiebig went one better than his 2021 second place finish at the same event. He edged out fellow Semifinal athlete Dumain to the top spot with Jan Arnd Finkenberg coming in third.

Denmark’s Team United, with 7 top 5 finishes, held off Team Optimized from Sweden and Italy’s Verbania Vikings to the top spot in the Elite Team division.
