Celebrating Qatar National day and showing its commitment to the local community, CrossFit ERADA, a CrossFit affiliate founded by Qatari nationals in Qatar, is organizing the second edition of Saturday Night Showdown, a fitness competition that focuses on the fitness, endurance and concentration of the player.

following the huge success of the first edition that took place on November 14, 2015, The Saturday Night Showdown comes back in its second edition on 19 December at 5:30 pm on the multi-purpose courts of The Sheraton Doha Resort and Convention Hotel.

under the umbrella of Qatar Sports for All Federation, the second showdown is bringing together sixty athletes, male and female, at which every participant will perform customized consecutive exercises and weightlifting. Each player will have a dedicated judge who will grant points on their performance. The players are divided into two sections: scaled for beginners and RX for more experienced athletes.
The top three winners in each section will win cash prizes from Sports Corner and gift vouchers from Hundler Qatar.
With the support of the ministry of Youth and Sports, Saturday Night Showdown is presented by Sports Corner and sponsored by Hundlur, Again Faster; Xendurance Supplements and Quest Nutrition.

Abdulla Al-Matwi, one of the founders of CrossFit ERADA, said: ‘Following the huge success of the first edition, we are now in the process of setting up the stage for the second edition.
