ATHLETICON Postponed Until 2021
We've just learned that Athleticon will not take place this year but will be postponed until October 2021. This exciting fitness event was set to take place this October in Atlanta, Georgia and was being put together by The Rock Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia and our good friend Robin Chang. Athleticon was scheduled to have an IFBB Pro league show and NPC amateur contest for athletes around the world to compete in along with many other fitness events and celebrity appearances. But with the devastation Covid-19 has had on the fitness industry, it was the right decision to postpone this event to 2021. Fans will fremember that earlier this year we saw the cancelling of the Arnold Sports Festival Expo in Columbus, Arnold Australia, FIBO (Europe’s largest fitness expo), BodyPower (the U.K’s largest fitness expo), and the Toronto Pro Supershow due to Covid-19.
GREATNESS BEGINS NOW
We are excited to announce the next phase of ATHLETICON with the launch of a free interactive, multi-platform digital community and content network that will ignite your passion and spark your curiosity through the power of athletics, wellness and entertainment.
We are moving our inaugural event experience to Saturday, October 9th and Sunday, October 10th, 2021, and our digital community will keep you laughing, sweating, and staying motivated through the year.
With a new date set for the 2020 Olympia, fans will still have some exciting events to look forward to later this year but it's sad to not see Athleticon this year. But this will give the organizers more time to set safety measures in place and really make this a global event.
Today, under the leadership and vision of Dany, Dwayne, and Dave, Athleticon will evolve and serve our mission to inspire, motivate, and entertain our fans. It’s time to shift and adapt as we continue to build on Athleticon for 2021. The inaugural IFBB Pro League ICON World Classic and NPC International Championships will continue to expand with our plans as the most anticipated competitions in our sport. We look forward to engaging with our amazing athletes and curating exclusive content for our community and fans. From myself and our partners, I look forward to welcoming and connecting with you in digital, but most of all, in person at Athleticon on October 9-10, 2021! - Robin Chang
