The organizers of the CVI Ermelo were prepared for 2017. We thought so, when we wrote down the CVI calendar for this year: They split their event into two weekends. One with all one stars competitors and one weekend with the two and three stars vaulters. They chose this option because the number of participants grew so much lately. To give everyone the opportunity to compete, they had to use two weekends. Very unusual for a vaulting competition.
And now this. So many vaulters registered for the CVI Ermelo in the Netherlands, that the organizers had to close the application period early on March 24, 2017.
Did this happen before? Vaulting is growing, at least in Europe.
