Danish Champs 2017

On Saturday we had our annual Danish Champs. I woke up feeling sick and decided to scratch. Instead, I had the pleasure of judging everything. A couple of others were sick and didn’t even show up. Sucks for them.

In attendance were: Nis, Rasmus, Kim, Peder, Troels, Mathias, Rasmus, Nikolai, Jasper (and girlfriend with baby), and Søren Nøhr (with his pregnant girlfriend).


Your esteemed judges

After some setting up and warming up, the competition started with routines. The only competitors were Søren, Nis and Mathias. Søren and Nis were really close, but Nis ended up taking second place with Søren taking third. Mathias won without playing a great routine. This makes Mathias a 10 time Danish Champion! That is pretty crazy.

Next up was circle with Mathias, Kim, Nis, Troels, Nikolai and Søren competing.

We had two qualifier circles with the top two from each moving on the final. The final ended up being Mathias, Kim, Nis and Søren. Mathias won, Nis got fourth and Kim and Søren battled it out with an extra round for second place. Kim ended up winning that.

The final competition was Request. I did the combos. Mathias also won that. Total domination. Here are the combos if you wanna try them:

  1. Far Legover > Same Pickup or Far Butterfly > Far Osis
  2. Outside Stall > Pincher or Clipper > Reverse Wrap
  3. Osis > Same Illusion or Mirage > Pickup Inside
  4. Same Butterfly from Clipper > Symposium Far Butterfly or Symposium Mirage > Symple Legover
  5. Pixie Same Mirage > Pixie Same Mirage or Ripwalk > Ripwalk
  6. Legbeater > Reverse Whirl or DLO from toe > Ducking Mirage
  7. Blur > Paradon  or Drifter > Gyro Mirage
  8. Ducking Butterfly > Stepping Same Clipper or DATW > Pixie Muted Rake
  9. Dyno > Symple Swirl or Spinning Legover > Atomic Pickup
  10. Whiz > Muted Swirl or Quantum Legover > Eggbeater
  11. Zulu Clipper > Blink or Terrage > Toe Ripwalk
  12. Blurry Whirl > PS Whirl or Pixie DLO > Pixie Ducking Mirage
  13. Twirl > Far Symposium Reverse Whirl or Toe Barrage > Flail
  14. Fairy Ducking Butterfly > Bedwetter or Gyro Symposium Butterfly> Butterfly Swirl
  15. Stepping Far Muted Swirl > Nuclear Butterfly or Pixie Atomic Legover > Enterrage
  16. Flurry > Atomic Gyro Mirage or Grifter > Gyro Drifter
  17. Pixie Quantum Butterfly > Janiwalk or Marius > Ripstein

The winners and the losers

After that, we played some 4square (which Kim dominated), had dinner and did a lot of the usual shit-talking and joke-telling. We talked about changing our organizations’ name to FuckbotDenmark to get more members. I think that would actually work.

Finally went out into the night to rage. It was great to party with Jasper and Rasmus again. It’s been too long.

  1. Still looks fun despite a pretty low turnout. 10 champs is a pretty awesome achievement – I think now Mathias is far and away the best player, but I think a lot of them were achieved when he wasn’t necessarily a “star player”, but turned up on the day and had enough to win.

    1. It was definitely fun. Mathias probably had his worst Champs in many years, but showed that his level and experience was just too much to match for anybody. That is also a great skill to have.
