Windhoek, 27 March 2022 – Old Mutual Namibia recently sponsored the Namibia CrossFit Damascus Gym with N$30 000 to host the 2022 CrossFit Open. The event started late February and concluded mid-March 2022 having been hosted every Friday for three weeks at the CrossFit Damascus Gym located at the Windhoek Show Grounds.
Speaking on why Old Mutual Namibia sponsored the 2022 CrossFit Open, Wikus Fourie, Wealth Chief Executive Officer at Old Mutual Namibia stated that “we are very passionate about investing in the communities we operate in and creating opportunities for personal growth. We are proud to have sponsored the 2022 CrossFit Open and were happy to see the support that the championships got”.
The CrossFit Damascus Gym was very excited at the response that they received from the community. “We were happy to see how the community stepped up to the challenge during the championships, showing resilience and making positive changes to their lives and those of others. We saw participants giving it their all on the competition floor and never giving up” said Patrick De Goede.
Additionally, “one of the advantages of CrossFit is that, apart from the physical wellbeing of our members we place great emphasis on the community. This is evidenced from the fact that the Open would not have taken place without the help of all the volunteers. We achieved the highest number of judges for any box in Africa,” De Goede further added.
