We made Tricklining Great Again
We left each other in 2019 with the last Trickline World Cup, won by the Chilean Abraham Hernandez. After that, more than 3 years of Covid, prevented us from meeting again to make this kind of event. But on June 25 and 26, 2022, slackliners from all over the world met in Stuttgart to compete in the Trickline World Cup in Stuttgart.
There were almost 1000 square meters of competition and interaction area in the center of the festival area. With women and men contest workshops, courses and challenges in the GIBOARD festival area. There were 6 female and 15 male athletes. The level of each one was very high but only one of them could be the winner of the competition. With the Trickline World Cup 2022, we were giving our athletes the same prize money (regardless of gender). This step was long overdue, but we are very happy about this decision.
There were four judging criteria during the competition which are: difficulty, diversity, technique and style.
What is next?
We are working on the next Trickline World Cup in Germany for 2023.
In the meantime, now that we have proved to you that trickline is not dead (far from it!).
