HOW DOES A CALISTHENICS BATTLE WORK?
The WOBleague is a 16 men/8 women competition. In each round athletes compete 1 vs 1. After both athletes have shown their performances the judges decide who of the athletes was better among all categories (view the judging system for details). This athlete is allowed to compete in the next round.

DO I NEED A VISA TO GET TO GO TO THE BATTLE
List of countries that need a visa to enter Germany
If your country is stated on the list above you need to have a visa to be able to take part in the competition. If you already have one please upload it in the field in the registration form. If you do not have a visa but need one please contact us in time. Unfortunately we need to warn you as for some countries (namely Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt) normally only receive visas if they have good connections to the German embassy or a lot of money.
HOW DO I GET SELECTED FOR THE BATTLES
You can increase your chance to get selected for the competition if you
- include skills from all categories (i.e. statics, dynamics and strength dynamics).
- submit a video with a long, creative combo that does not have any interruptions.
- have recent videos of your current skill level on your instagram profile.
Of course, in the end your overall skill level determines if you are strong enough for the competition. Note that athletes that only perform statics and strength dynamics skills OR only dynamics skills will only be considered in the selection as last resource. Last but not least: we do not care about your number of followers on instagram, previous titles or who you know.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I GOT SELECTED FOR THE BATTLE?
You will receive an email until the 21st of February 2020 if you are chosen.
WHY IS THERE A DIFFERENCE IN PRICE MONEY BETWEEN MALE & FEMALE ATHLETES?
The answer is simple, the competition between male athletes is a lot harder than between female athletes. The number of registrants for the male competition was 5 times as high as the number of the registrants for the female competition in the past. Furthermore male athletes have to do 4 rounds to get into the final while female athletes only need to do 3. Additionally, some male athletes went through extra qualification battles (i.e. the WOB Underground League) to be able to participate in the league. We therefore find it fairer to award the male athletes with a higher prize money.
