Impossibility Challenger

Impossibility Challenger seeks to inspire people from all walks of life to experience the spirit of self-transcendence in a unique way. It serves as a platform for anyone who wants to push the limits of human possibility and tries to establish a new World Record or personal record in non-Olympic disciplines. Impossibility Challenger is sponsored by the Sri Chinmoy Center and was first organized in Zurich, Switzerland in 1982. From 2002 to 2010 in took place in Munich, Germany and later also in New Zealand and Hungary.

This year's Impossibility Challenger took place on 6th and 7th of December in the Stadium of Leiria, Leiria city, Portugal. Impossibility Challenger is sponsored by the Sri Chinmoy Centers. The City Hall of Leiria sponsored the Stadium and warmly welcomed the realization of the event.

It was the first time that the Impossibility Challenger visited Portugal. Over 130 participants from five countries set eleven new World Records and three personal records! In this link you can check all the results.

Thank you Portugal for the excellent event!!
