About Throwdown

Michael Maritz promoter of the ACA (a cut above) Throwdown held at Arnold Classic Africa Sport festival is very excited as count down officially began to the 4th  ACA Throwdown. I am so looking forward to see you all in action at the Throwdown. The magnitude of the Arnold Classic Africa Sports festival will blow your mind as 80+ sporting codes with over 20 000 athletes and 95 000+ spectators will partake in it.

This year we have the same area and space as last year. We will be situated in the middle of Level 2 Exhibition floor.

One of the main features and highlights of this event is that the legendary Arnold Schwarzenegger will visit all the sporting codes during the course of the weekend. Arnold did visit the Throwdown in 2016 and in 2017 , unfortunately due to illness he couldn’t attend the 2018 Arnold Classics Africa. Arnold will be back this year.

The mission of this ACA Throwdown is to bring together the Functional/CrossFit community from all over the country to compete for the title fittest team at  Arnold Classic South Africa. The programming for this event will cater for advance; intermediate and beginner athletes.

Please familiarize and adhere to this very important information. Failure to do so can lead to paying for your own accreditation and or disqualification.
