For the first time the ISPO decided to be the host of an official WSFed slackline contest. On 3 days there will be battles in the categories Rookie*, Women and Men/Pro. That means it is not only a question of honor, price money and big fun, it is also the chance to get the first worldranking points in 2012. We are happy to present the first competitors in the category Men/Pro: Carlos Neto (BR), Jaan Roose (EE) and Nick ten Hoopen (NL) and also in the category Girls: Elli Schulte (GER) and Melissa Bowe (USA)
