World Championships - Day 1

The first day of the 2010 World Rope Skipping Championships was a great one with fantastic performances from the male and open division teams. Although our Nova Scotian jumpers didn't reach the podium it was a great day for Canada. Our team from British Columbia won the bronze medal in Double Dutch Pairs Speed (2x60s). The female teams also competed in 2x60s this evening and one of our Ontario teams (Brampton Acro Ropers) won the silver medal.

We wish the best of luck to our female team from the Jump Energy Rope Skipping Club who will be competing in the female division tomorrow. Go Canada!

Until then, check out this video from the 2010 USA Grand National Champion Robbie Csontos, of Hot Dog USA. We haven't seen him in Loughborough yet, but we're hoping he makes an appearance on masters' day to show us more of his great jumping!
