Just a little more than a week after we released that Sara Sigmundsdottir would be one of eight NIKE athlete-mentors for the upcoming 2020 Freakest Challenge, we now know the seven other athletes to join her in Barcelona next weekend.

The details: Eight teams (MM-FF) from across Europe competed in an online qualifier for a chance to compete in Barcelona in a single day tournament-style competition. Each team will be paired with a NIKE athlete to serve as a coach during the competition in one of the most unique and exciting live events on the calendar.

  • Sara Sigmundsdottir
  • Lauren Fisher
  • Laura Horvath
  • Thuri Helgadottir
  • Mathew Fraser
  • Noah Ohlsen
  • Lucas Hogberg
  • Willy Georges
  • Full list of teams.

One big thing: Last year, nearly two thousand fans packed out the Sant Jordi Club in Barcelona and close to two hundred thousand tuned into the livestream. The fact that this event last only three to four hours — compared to three-plus days like Sanctioned events — shows that there’s an appetite for content that can fit into one sitting.
