This past winter, Denmark started a barrel cup with five indoor competitions during the cold season. Invitations went to beginners to get a feeling of competitions and to have some fun as well as pros to test their programs for the summer competitions.
The idea went down very well with the Danish vaulters: the organizers were able to welcome 300 competitors. For today’s final 200 athletes are qualified. These are
- 29 individuals
- 15 pas de deux
- 20 groups
- and 5 show teams.
Tivoli Gardens is the second-oldest still operating amusement park of the world. It opened in 1843. There are many roller coasters and other attractions in the city center of Copenhagen. That’s the location where the Danish barrel cup final will take place! Cool, what a place compared to a riding arena or gym.
The competition starts at 12:00 AM CEST. Around 6:00 PM CEST, the winners should be found. The live stream is available on Zibrasport.dk.
