Tanzsport 2011 bei den European Masters Games
Tanzsport wird sich im kommenden Jahr bei den European Masters Games präsentieren. Wer sich jetzt fragt, was die Masters Games sind, dem gibt Heidi Götz, Pressesprecherin der IDSF, im folgenden englischen Originaltext Antwort. Kurz gesagt sind diese internationalen Wettkämpfe für alle Tanzsportler ab 35 Jahren interessant.
Masters at Their Game
DanceSport will feature in the 2011 European Masters Games too. Now you wonder: "What are Masters Games?" In short, they are international multi-sport games for athletes aged 35 or older ...
"Senior" or "veteran" are the terms most often used to describe a mature athlete. "Masters" are competitors who comply with an International Federation's rules regarding a defined minimum age in their respective sport, normally between 30 and 40 years. Most Masters' sports are organised in different age classes reflecting intervals of five to ten years between one and the other. In some sports they go up to a class for octogenarians!
Participants in the Masters Games may be former world or national champions, Olympians, national representatives or club athletes. They participate for a multitude of reasons, with the level of competition ranging from elite to the more social. Participants compete as individuals and not in national teams. After International World Masters Games Association President Kai Holm welcomed IDSF as a new member to his organisation in April 2010, athletes in DanceSport, aged 35 or over, have now the opportunity to enter the 2013 World Masters Games in Turin, Italy.
Even prior to that, they should consider to travel to Italy for the 2011 European Masters Games. They will be held in Lignano and they will include DanceSport too. Standard and Latin contests in different age classes are held on 17 and 18 September 2011 at the Lignano Sabbiadoro Sports Hall.
