Video: Okanagan Valley Throwdown returns to Penticton for seventh year

The annual fitness competition brings athletes from across the country to Penticton

The Okanagan Valley Throwdown returned to Penticton and the South Okanagan Event Centre for the seventh year in a row.

The annual event saw over 200 athletes compete in the Crossfit styled competition. Over two days, the athletes brought their all to a variety of different fitness challenges.

For many athletes, the event is an opportunity to meet up with friends as well as a challenge for themselves.

“It’s like a reunion,” said Rebecca Stoddart, a pairs competitor from Vernon. “You get to see athletes you see every year. I think it’s great for the community and for our gym, and keeps it fun.”
