How Did You Compare To The World’s Greatest Athletes?
In a bid to keep us off the couch over lockdown, 10 of the world’s best athletes have been challenging the world to the Living Room Cup, a digital workout series where, over the past seven weeks, Nike’s athletes have been doing plank get-ups, cobra push-ups and mountain climbers like we’ve never seen before and challenging us to beat them. Did you take part? And more importantly, did you beat the pros?
The time limit was the same: how many reps could you do in 45 seconds, but each challenge was vastly different.
Football icon Cristiano Ronaldo kicked things off with his core crusher challenge and was swiftly followed by Bebe Vio’s full body finisher, Leroy Sané’s side step, Dina Asher Smith’s block busters, and Rory McIlroy’s plank get-ups.
The Nike Living Room Cup was rounded up in Week Six with an all-star week including our own Caster Semenya, as well as Dutch footballer Virgil van Dijk, Russian ice hockey player Alexander Mikhailovich Ovechkin and Romanian tennis player Simona Halep.
The tennis champ himself Rafael Nadal wrapped things up to bring the series to a close.
