ASICS PARCOURING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP 2008: Urban Acrobats seize the Hanseatic City
These are the new world champions of Parcouring
For the second time Parcouring athletes from all over the world came together to determine the best. The ASICS PARCOURING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP 2008 was part of the culture festival regarding the Day of German Unification.
There was quite a neck-on-neck race at the speed contest where the twelve obstacles had to be crossed as fast as possible.
The 27 year old stunt professional Markus Papiernik from Berlin (Germany) crossed the course in only 55,32 seconds and left his competition behind him. Thereby he won the title as Speed Parcouring World Champion for the first time.
The silver medal went to Gaëtan Bouillet from Belgium. Bronze went to Filip Ljungberg from Sweden.
For the first time the discipline concerning style was offered at this year’s world championship. The athletes had the opportunity to show their skills in 45 to 90 seconds. No specific guidelines were set to give the athlete the most possible freedom in creativity.
The 16 year old Delian Donchev Dimitrov from Bulgaria and Marcus Gustafsson from Sweden won the gold medal.
As the performances were so good, the silver medal also went to two sportsmen: Norbert Béres from Hungary and Amadei Weiland from Germany received the exact same points. Bronze went to the German Joachim Zell.
The athletes were evaluated by the judges in the categories execution, flow, show character, creativity and difficulty.
Not only were the competitions exciting; the break dance group Mission Impossible from Berlin performed an impressive show with techniques like electro boogie and pop lookin. On top of this the Japanese drum group Tengu Daiko entertained the spectators.
This year Parcouring was supported by the sports goods producer ASICS for the first time.
Additionally to the extensive commitment of ASICS as the title sponsor of the tour and world championship, they equipped the complete German national team, all officials and numerous volunteers.
Markus Hupach, Senior Marketing Manager Sportstyle of ASICS Deutschland GmbH: “The ASICS PARCOURING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP 2008 was a very successful event, despite the unsettled weather. Thereby it wasn’t only important to elect the best athletes, but to present the sport itself and bring it closer to the spectator. The skills which we saw in the competition thrilled young and old.”
