Why the Swiss Alpine Battle?

The Swiss Alpine Battle (SAB) was born in 2015 with one goal: to create unique experiences and long-lasting memories for athletes, spectators and partners.

Recognized for our professionalism, hospitality and authenticity, we aim at providing:

  • A world-class event with seamless flow
  • An exciting atmosphere for the CrossFit community and elite athletes
  • Breathtaking scenery where the Swiss Alps become the competition floor
  • Positive relationships for our partners to grow with us

The SAB is a team only competition open to all athletes wanting to test their level of fitness at 1300m altitude, in the heart of the Alps.

Athletes that wish to qualify for and compete at the SAB must upload a video link along with each of their workout score submission whether they train in an affiliate or not.

The SAB Team will evaluate your video if your score is potentially in the top 35 of each WOD (top 5 for Masters). The SAB team reserves the right to correct the scores if needed.

Score and Video Submission:

To make sure the video is valid, please specify your name, the equipment and the weights used during the workout (by showing them in the video) and the score at the end (time or repetitions). It is your responsibility to position the camera so that we can evaluate all the movements and their standards correctly as well as a timer. All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. We will be extremely rigorous in reviewing the videos and we expect athletes to uphold the highest standards in performing movements.

There are four possible outcomes in the judging and scoring of online video submissions:

Good Video: The athlete meets the required movement standards on all repetitions in the workout, and the score they posted is correct. Their score will be accepted.

Valid with Minor Penalty: Over the course of the video, the athlete demonstrates 1 to 4 “no-reps” that may be removed from the athlete’s final score as required. This penalty is used for video submissions for which the score needs to be adjusted by fewer than 5 reps. If the score is posted in the form of a time, the total time to complete the workout will be adjusted accordingly.

Valid with Major Penalty: Over the course of the video, the athlete demonstrates 5 or more “no-reps.” In this case, the score may be modified by subtracting 15 percent from the total rep count. If the score is posted in the form of a time, the total time to complete the workout will be adjusted accordingly.

Invalid: Over the course of the video, the athlete fails to complete the workout as required, a significant and unacceptable number of reps performed are “no-reps” or the video does not contain the criteria listed in the video submission standards. The athlete’s score will be rejected.

No late submissions will be accepted.
