2014 Portugal

PortugalOn the 7 of December of 2014, the 20th Impossibility Challenger took place in the stadium of Leiria, Portugal. 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. This event organized by the Sri Chinmoy Centers is about self-transcendence and fun: pushing human capacities beyond the limits of possibility with stamina, mind- and heart-power, imagination and a sense of humour to show what we are capable of achieving.
