Second Born to Trick Challenge 2016 is successfully over!
Same as the last years event two parkour-freerunning and street workout communities were put together. This year there were 36 competitors in 9 teams. The main idea of the competition was to randomly connect people together into teams. So they join forces, show team spirit, cooperation and create a creative choreography, where they help each other.
Weather was great whole weekend and before competition day everyone could enjoy the JAM and barbecue. That day everyone could try, what kind of options is Born to Trick Park offering. At the evening barbecue started and lasted until the early morning. There were some people training at night only in the light of torches and phones. Over night a adventurer was lost until the next day. Everybody was looking for him and then he appeared without his shoes and pants, maybe to much party?
On sunday last participants registered onsite. Competition started something about twelve o’clock when team members were randomly drawn. Every team had two members from parkour and freerunning and next two were from street workout.
While teams were practicing, you could join a workshop, how to stretch your body – under the guidance of an experienced physiotherapist Pavol Tomov.
While that workshop athletes were also practicing their single runs/freestyles and the crowd could join some small challenges, where they had the chance to win some small presents.
This years judges and special guests were: Waldi Müller from Germany, Kirya Kolesnikov from Russia, Vladimír Koldaev from Russia, Stanislav Lazdan from Latvia and Martin Viedenský from Slovakia. Everyone of them judged team choreographies and then single performances. Finally points were counted together for each team.
Results of team choreographies:
1st place – Team Teletabies – Kristína Bírová / Juraj Žigrai / Tomáš Čambalík / Šimon Forai
2nd place – Team Asleep – Michal Marček / Dávid Solivajs / Marek Podhorský / Andrej Hrdý
3rd place – Team Oaks – Dominik Ráček / Peter Kocourek / Dušan Párovský / Simona Máteová
