02 December 2019

The Jolly Sailor Invincibles from Cornwall emerged triumphant as the University of Bath Sports Training Village hosted Strength in Depth Origins – the ultimate team test of fitness and endurance – for a sixth successive year.

An action-packed weekend saw 70 teams of 12 battle it out across two days in a range of gruelling challenges utilising the STV’s swimming pool, indoor and outdoor athletics tracks, and the sports hall which was transformed into a giant fitness arena.

The Jolly Sailor team ranked in the top three in five of the eight challenges to deservedly take the title with 48 points, 15 clear of runners-up Crossfit 1971 from London. Norway’s Crossfit Oslo Wolfpack, who went into the weekend as defending champions, completed the top three.
