It’s the finals day! I was lying awake before the alarm in anticipation of who would be crowned the European Champion later that evening.
I was whizzing around with my camera all morning; so much so, that I had to change my battery half way through the day in order to keep snapping!
During a penalty shootout, I decided that it would be a lot easier to video the tension rather than try to explain it in words later on. But not only did I film it, I did it on a Live Stream so that you could all know what was going on in Real Time through a Facebook Live video. It has had over 200 views already and there were a lot of positive comments on it too so let me know if you like this idea and maybe I can follow it up for the last chukka of a Finals Game in upcoming tournaments or something (as long as I am not playing in the final of course which is clearly very unlikely).
After a gripping but very (I wish to note) fair-played game, the Mammuts were announced as European Champions.
There was an awards ceremony with some beautiful presentations although rather difficult to transport home if you are going via plane. Could this please be considered in future? -it is becoming an increasingly difficult task, as beautiful as they have been. We had to rush off to catch out flight before the end but understand that the Mammuts stood at the top of the stadium balcony to hold the Cup high for all to see in a similar way to football and F1 sports.
We reached the plane in time and even had a few minutes to grab some tasty treats in Duty Free. It was a rather uncomfortable flight sitting on the very back row of the plane but at least we got home safe. It was 2.30am by the time we reached our car and began the 3 hour drive back home. Due to the early time, we managed to make it back for just after 5am meaning that I was able to get just under 2 hours sleep before heading out again to go to work. It was a very long 48 hours but all worth it to see our friends an experience the first EVER Segway Polo tournament in Spain – what an event it was too! Please hold another soon as we would love to return to the beautiful town of Denia.
Huge thank you to all the sponsors of the event who made it at all possible and thank you also to the help and guidance of Olaf and Sonia who ensured that Segway Trip hit the ground running with no problems throughout the whole weekend.
See you all at the next one!
Over and out,
