Judging at the RMC 2007

As one of the appointed judges was unable to make it I was asked to judge at the Rhein Main Cup (RMC). I heard a lot about the supreme organization of this competition but still was astonished to find it exceed the expectations. One can learn a lot from just visiting the event.

With Susan Kluytmans, Pim Vermeulen and Hans Pütz I had three very experienced judges on my side. It was a pleasure working with these guys.



The two most incredible performances I was judging that day where a new Dutch record in static (Eric van Riet Paap, 7:07) and an incredible dynamic no fins no arms by William Winram (114m). You can find a video of both Erics and Williams performance on Shark-Freedive.

I also saw the cutest DQ when one athlete got a kiss from his coach/wife right after finishing his SP but before I could wave a white card in his face.

  2. Martin,

    hep me, did I show you a card?

    You are loosing track of the individual athlete when you are staying focused on the thing you have to perform as a judge.

    I just read that this was your first competition. Well done! Keep it up! Any plans to come to Berlin ;)?
