Do you have what it takes to be able to call yourself the best BULA Swinger overall at Ekstremsportveko 2022?
Friday 1st of July, Ekstremsportveko invites you to the "BULA Swingers Competition". The Bula Swingers Competition is an individual competition in the large swing, which is located at the festival arena. The swing is called "Kiiking", and originates from Estonia, in 1996 kiiking became a sport when it was discovered that you could turn 360 degrees vertically around it. Kiiking may look simple, but it requires strength, endurance, and not least guts. At the same time, it is an insanely cool experience that gives you a kick of adrenaline.
The swing is designed so that you can adjust the height of the support rods, and thus make it higher if you want. When the swing gets higher, it will be more challenging to get the swing to go 360 degrees around. Therefore it also requires more strength, endurance, and guts. You create speed on the swing through good swing technique, something which in turn requires a good dose of coordination, timing, and strength.
The principle of the competition is therefore quite simple. The one who manages to swing the swing around, with the longest possible support rods, wins. The competition is divided into two parts and will consist of a qualification and a final. There are only 12 places in the qualification, so you should sign up before it sells out. Each competitor will be given one attempt at a preselected height to make it around. You have 2 minutes to make the swing go around the shaft. If you don´t make it around at the chosen height during those two minutes, your attempt will not count. The start list will be drawn randomly, which makes the competition a bit more tactical as well. The three best competitors in the qualification will proceed into the final. In the final, everything will be decided and the winner of the BULA Swingers Competition 2022 will be chosen. The winners will be announced on the stage at the prize-giving ceremony on Friday night.
- Qualification 09:00 - 12:00
