Postponed: CrossFit German Throwdown Finals | TBA | Arena Halle | Berlin

Max Schneider is going to be the new Competition Director at the German Throwdown

At the beginning of the year I made a decision. Max Schneider will be added to our team as Competition Director. He’s also going to be the new Head Judge.

In 2016 and 2017 I tried to not only manage the competition in general, but I also tried to be the Director. Gregor Schregle helped me out a lot since the beginning, especially with programming the right workouts. But I needed someone that concentrates fully on the competition on the finals weekend.

I am very confident to have made the right choice with Max. He’s a very experienced Director, Head Judge, Box owner and CrossFitter.
