Thanks to the Athlete of the Year award, Maurit's Christmas, Kelly de Vos and Janne Jacobs went home with a cup. Janne was the youngest of the couple to be commended for her commitment to the pole sport. She has given several demo s for dance schools and during festivities in the village where she lives. It wants to highlight the pole sport positively and among as diverse an audience as possible. For example, on request, she has been involved in the day-to-day use of elderly people and has acted as a duo during a live performance of an orchestra! Through her instagram account, she wants to draw attention to healthy and controlled training to prevent injury. I'm sure we'll hear more from this young lady!

Finally, it was Maurice's Christmas that was allowed to come forward. With his always modest appearance, he rightly received this award in addition to the third place in the category Polesport Senior Men. He himself states that he does not deserve the award any more than the other men in the Dutch pole sport. Flexmonkey has also interviewed Maurits before and knows that he has been committed to the sport for years. Through his lessons and his performances at the NK, he hopes to inspire sportsmen and show that you do not have to be very flexible or elegant to put on a beautiful act after all.
Flexmonkey is proud to have crowned these fantastic altars for their efforts in the pole-sport world. In addition, she sponsored the second stage, which allowed all acts to connect quickly and all disciplines to take place within one weekend. Once again, Flexmonkey is proud of the Paalsport within our little cold frog country!
