September seems to be the time for national championships. The nationals for juniors and seniors of Germany took place already in July and August and also the Netherlands have their 2016 champions for a few weeks now. Nothing to be sad of, the action continues. Lots of nationals in September. Here are the links how to follow:
Austria: Their nationals are in Pill. It started yesterday. They post very regularly on Facebook. A big thank you for that!
Slovakia: The championship of Slovakia is also this weekend. They have five Slovakian and one Hungarian judge. Results can be found on this web page. With all these links, we have a nice opportunity to compare the number of participants and the scores of different countries.
Denmark: Another championship to take place is the Nordic Championships next weekend (it is nationals for Denmark). Three days of great vaulting with more than 70 individuals and 12 squads. An international panel of judges of Monika Eriksson (SWE, FEI 4*), Petra Skog (FIN, FEI 2*), Frank Spadinger (AUT, FEI 4*), John Eccles (GBR, FEI 3*) and Lise C. Berg (DEN, FEI 2*) will decide about the champions. There will be live stream. The link follows on this Facebook page.
If you want to read more about the judges at nationals, take a look at the post from last week.
Italy: Italy is also keeping us up to date on Facebook. Like the Austrian page, it is the language of the country. What a great advantage that the Facebook translator works that well. Thanks for the page! We love to read about all the vaulting countries.
Switzerland: The national championships of Switzerland take place next weekend in Tösstal. They have an own web page.
South Africa: This championship will also be next weekend but takes four days. It would be really great to read how it was afterwards! Information might e on the website of “Vaulting South Africa”
Great Britain: The country celebrates its 25th championships in October. In the evening there will be a big gala dinner. They even have a teddy bear fan item to buy at the events. Cool idea. You can follow on Facebook.
