The Daman Hercules Trophy made its inaugural appearance at Zayed Sports City last month as hundreds competed to claim the Trophy.

Employees and executives from some of the biggest companies the UAE, including teams from the events headline sponsor Daman, plus Etihad Airways and Etihad Rail, battled it out in the 12 labours which included The Eliminator, Surf Rodeo and the Human Catapult among many more.

“We are delighted to introduce the Daman Hercules Trophy to Abu Dhabi. This initiative has proved to be very successful in Dubai with some of the biggest corporate organisations participating in it. It is heartening to see that large companies here in the capital understand the message we are sending through this initiative; that corporates have an important role to play in the health of their staff. Through initiatives such as the Daman Hercules Trophy and our other events, we aim to mobilise the community to get physically fit and seek healthy living,” said Dr Michael Bitzer, Chief Executive Officer of Daman.

After 12 exciting labour challenges the first ever winning team in Abu Dhabi was Daman Health’s Fireproof. Fireproof was closely followed by Daman Health’s Active8 with Abu Dhabi Finance Olympians II finishing in third position.
