Bluesky sponsors island’s first Funkfit games
Pago Pago, AMERICAN SAMOA — The island’s first annual FunkFit Games will be held this Saturday, November 21, 2020 at the Tafuna Veterans Stadium from 8:30a.m to 2:00p.m.
The highly anticipated event is free to enter and will feature a range of local food vendors and children’s bounce houses available for those who attend.
Funkfit is a movement created to provide locals with high intensity fitness opportunities inspired through popular fitness regimen, Crossfit.
The games are set to be extremely competitive requiring great discipline, strength and training. The organization generally competes in the Fatu Toa Games in Apia held yearly, but this will be the first competition of its kind here in American Samoa.
There are currently 12 local teams of four competing, with each team consisting of two females and two males. Contestant profiles are available to view on the FunkFit Games 2020 Facebook page.
The competition will include a range of timed workouts such as the heaviest deadlifts, overhead weighted lunges and sprints. Each workout will be judged vigorously ensuring high standards of execution are met to determine who will be awarded the title as “The Fittest On The Rock”.
As part of Bluesky's sponsorship, Bluesky will be providing a free live stream on Moana TV Channel 3 and the Bluesky American Samoa Facebook page for those unable to attend, who wish to support our local athletes during this island first event.
Bluesky has also donated workout mats, advertising materials and prizes for the contestants.
