World Freerun Championships 2009

Posted by garethwatkins on August 17, 2009

As controversial as this event always is and there is no question that the people who went enjoyed it. I personally had an incredible time.

I was lucky enough to win tickets into the slightly dubiously named Golden Circle through @LDN on Twitter, although I get the impression that there wasn’t really a bad view from anywhere. Except maybe the VIP section.

Rather than get involved in another argument on the interent about the merits of this event, I’m simply going to post up a few pictures to let people see what was going on in Trafalgar Square last Saturday.

A few pictures from Saturday’s big event.

This was happening in the heart of London, surrounded by some of the capital’s greatest landmarks (and even built onto one!), in the middle of tourist season on a sunny day. How amazing is London!?! On top of all the joy of watching the championships, I had a genuine sense of joy that it was all happening in my city.

And then you add on top of that the inclusion of breakdance crews, Diversity and The Pete Box. Now that’s a show!

On a format note, I’d allow competitors the introduction before starting their 60 seconds. Make it 60 seconds from the first move rather than the start of the music and it would be easier for them as well as the audience.
