The German Team For The WEG Is Almost Complete

The individuals & pas de deux of Germany for the world championships are fixed:

Females: Kristina Boe & Corinna Knauf

Males: Erik Oese, Viktor Brüsewitz & Thomas Brüsewitz

Pas de deux: Pia Engelberty & Torben Jacobs plus Gera Grün & Justin van Gerven

Isn’t Germany the country with the most vaulters? Why isn’t there a third woman good enough? I mean the goal to be placed under the first five is utopistic.

      Yes, you are right. She is from Neuss & some articles in the Internet say they are so proud that they had such an important part of the win at the nations cup.

    I already found out about my previous question.

    Now about the damen… Yes, I think you are gonna have a hard time getting on top 5. But where did your individuals go? I mean, where are the girls from Ingelsberg and Neuss, for an example?

    Do you think you are gonna make it with the herren?

      The individuals from Neuss only start at the national competitions. I would have to take a look in the rules, but I don’t think it is possible to compete in the team & as individual at the world championships. So if Neuss goes as team there is Regina Burgmayer from Ingelsberg: She was 5. at the selection in Krumke. Third was Christine Kuhirt 0,136 behind Kristina Boe. I don’t get it, why she isn’t allowed to start. There are other nations with a much longer drive & the rest of the Germans are going anyway. Results:

      If the German Males could win? Oh, I don’t know. I would like to see Eric Oese on the first place but the french men are strong: Jacques Ferrari, Nicolas Andreani, Vincent Haennel or Remy Hombeque.
      But who definitly deserves it to finally win a championship is Stefan Csandl from Austria. But neither he nor the Germans have own good horses.

      Females: It will be a race between Joanne Eccles, Anna Cavallaro, Rikke Laumann & Simone Jäiser. I love Mary McCormicks & the Austrian vaulters but it won’t be enough. Corinna Knauf has the same freestyle for the second or third year. I don’t like that. Kristina Boe is ok, but not one of the leading vaulters in the world.

      I think I missed some good vaulters who could play a role at the WEG. Fact is, most of the time I root for Austria, Great Britain, Slovakia, Denmark, USA, France or something else. I roote for the performance I like the most & I don’t know when this was a German vaulter or team…
