Talentholdet Gymnasts have travelled all the way from their home in Kolding, Denmark to be at the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo again this year. They visted us back in 2011 and are back to dazzle us once again.
This group is made up of 26 selected elite gymnasts, both boys and girls, ranging from 10 to 22 years of age. Their performances are absolutely breathtaking and showcase their precision.
Each of the members of this elite team trains 2 to 3 times per week in Kolding. Most live in the local area, but some travel more than 70 kilometers for each practice. In addition to the group training sessions, each member of the team has home and weekend workouts to stay in shape for performances and shows.
These athletes and their trainers are so full of joy, energy and passion for their sport. We all know that the Danish are known for their tradition of gymnastics, but these folks take rope skipping and tumbling to an explosive new level.
Talentholdet has had the opportunity to travel to many locations around the world including: The Royal Nova Scotia Tattoo (the world largest indoor Tattoo), Die Polizie Show in Hamburg, Kiel, Neumünster and Sportler Des Jahres in Saarbrücken 2011 (Live Tv), and the South Africa Tattoo in Johannesburg 2012.
