 Compulsory Helmet use in Wheel Gymnastics ... was an April Joke only!

Dave Ettelson (USA)
can sell his helmet again!

Neither a European Commission, the Council of the European Union nor the European Parliament have adopted an EU regulation, a helmet law for wheel gymnasts so that the actors of the upcoming 10th WHEEL GYMNASTICS GYMNASTICS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS, which will be held in early July for the first time outside Europe, in Chicago (USA), can continue their preparation without helmets.
Conceived had this joke, the Chairman of the German Wheel Federation, Franz Obry, together with the OC director of the upcoming Worlds, Wolfgang Bientzle: They used an international training camp in Taunusstein (Germany) to the appropriate helmet-equipment, and graphics to set the scene.
Nevertheless, the first Wheel Gymnastics Worlds in the summer expected in the U.S. with voltage, but also bring an interesting premiere of the new discipline "Mono wheel" ("Cyrrad").

EU Regulation:
Compulsory Helmet use in Wheel Gymnastics causes much confusen

Dave Ettelson (USA) vom
Club 'Wheel Jam' Chikago aus Glencoe

The news of a new European Union (EU) regulation based on a suggestion from the European Commission and European Parliament making the use of helmets compulsory in wheel gymnastics from July 2013 has hit like a bombshell and led to much confusion and considerable irritation – especially at such short notice before the World Gymnastics Championships in Chicago.
The regulatory text published in the official gazette of the EU in March will directly affect the participants of the World Championships in Chicago.
This has come as a complete surprise to the recently qualified German athletes who have had no advance information about the possibility of such a regulation.

<< The hosts in the US, on the other hand, have been made aware of the new regulation and are ready to use helmets in Chicago.

 The real History of 'Mono Wheel' ('Cyr Wheel')

Adalbert von Rekowski
- the founder of the Mono Wheel in action

Two years ago the German gymnast and 13-times world champion of wheel gymnastics,  Rober MAASER astonished the audience at the TV show “Supertalent” – it's the German equivalent of "America’s Got Talent" with his Mono Wheel skills. Last week during a season show he earned a lot of respect and applause from the young audience for his performance with the Mono Wheel – which will have its premiere at an official discipline at the 10thWheel Gymnastics World Championship, July 8th-14th in Chicago USA.
The former German champion, Dr. Joerg Winkler, rediscovered the history of the mono wheel, which was created in the early Fiftyth of the last century already in the former GDR. The Mono Wheel sometimes named Cyr Wheel, due to the Canadian Daniel Cyr, who created a lot of new elements in the end of the last century, was founded by Otto Feick, who happened to also be the creator of the "Rhoenrad".
Early pictures prove this fact.

 International gymwheel aces at the IRV-seminar

Former World Champion Wolfgang Bientzle (GER) as a lector

It is a good tradition, that the International Wheel Gymnastics Federation (IRV) is inviting to an achievement seminar with international participation in the week after the WORLD TEAM CUP.

Not without reason, because it is there where the wheel gymnastics club of the TSV Bleidenstadt holds the yearly so-called "Easter seminar".
Why should one not do something in combination then, especially since the "wheel gym guru", the many time  former world champion Wolfgang Bientzle (GER) came all the way from Chicago to give forth his knowledge and experience as a teacher.
But it was not only a seminar for the actives.  .. full story >>
