X. The GP in Moscow has its winners

Judges made up of referees from Russia, Croatia and the Czech Republic, rated 211 formations from five countries, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Kyrgyzstan, Poland and domestic Russia. Russia prevailed by its number of formations. According the words from Mr Andrei Kokoulin, president of the Russian Federation of Sports Dances and Choreography, this participation was pleasing but still low by Russian standards. They are already planning next year’s competition for 2 days. The CSKA Moscow sports area where the competition was held has excellent conditions; it is equipped with sports halls, a hotel, within walking distance is connected to public transport, to the subway even from both sides, the shopping centre is across the road.

Record attendance at the X. Moscow Grand Prix

Record attendance at the X. Moscow Grand Prix

More than 200 formations are entered on the starting list of the majorette sport competition GP Moscow. In the CSKA Moscow sports hall, formations from Croatia, the Czech Republic, Kyrgyzstan, Poland and the Russia from different regions. The Russian Federation of Sports Choreographies is an experienced organizer, but the competition day will be challenging. The results will be processed in QScore (special applications for majorette sport), but will not be reported continuously for such high attendance. Intermediate results require more time, and this is impossible with such high attendance; the competition would be extended into the evening hours. The results will be announced during the day in at least two ceremonies, the first block is intended for small formations, the second group.

The competition is included in the IFMS calendar and is governed by its rules. According to the IFMS methodology, less occupied disciplines may be combined with a similar discipline. It is a competition and performance comparison, motivation for better results. The Grand Prix in Majorette Sport takes place in Moscow for the fourth time. According to the participation it can be assumed that it will be a competition with all attributes and will meet the expectations of both competitors and organizers.

V. Mediterranean Cup + Master-class

V. Mediterranean Cup + Master-class

On Saturday, October26, 2019, a seminar for trainers and majorettes took place in the morning in the Sport Centre Bazeni Poljud in Split. I led the seminar together with my assistant Kristýna Daňková. I focused mainly on physical training, because Croatian majorettes have the biggest problem with this part. I pointed out the most common mistakes that occur most often and which they should work on. Coaches and girls were also interested in the correct presentation of gymnastic elements, while of course I pointed out the importance and correctness of working with the equipment pom pom.

On Saturday evening we discussed IFMS and HUMT rules together with coaches and referees. I answered their questions about the differences and our method of evaluation. Unfortunately, technology has not allowed us to evaluate the videos and show the most common mistakes on them.

Sunday 27.10. belonged to the competition V. Mediterranean Cup, where besides me evaluated national and international referees from Croatia, Montenegro and Slovenia. There were also teams participating in the competition from the mentioned countries. The Czech Republic was represented by Kristýna Daňková, who also participated in the Miss competition, which the organizers ranked for the time when points were counted and the results of the V. Mediterranean Cup were awaited. Kristyna ended out of 27 participants as 2nd vicemiss and so it was confirmed that the Czech Republic has beautiful girls.

The competition could be compared to our non-advancement competitions. However, it was apparent from the soloists who attended the Saturday morning seminar that they were paying more attention to the mistakes I pointed out. So I believe that with my little help I have contributed to the improvement of movement equipment in Croatia.
