Hello from Venue Austria

King Kong is one Night out and we are exited like every Year. Because Corona Restrictions we have to split our ~21 Competitors in Flights like last Year, so the full Spirit will not kick in and the whole lifting Ceremony will take double the Time. But we are in, this is important in this weird strange Times.

Kraft Heil,

Sirko aus Tirol

I am speechless right now 🥰

Michael Thomas wrote to us earlier this day. He offered $100 each for the best lift at the men's and women's finnish ball last month.

We will donate the money to a good cause to support children in sport.

It is so great to realise how there are good people in sport all over the world 🍀

Literally in the last days of this year, the KK21 awards arrived in Ukraine, and luckily, the WR certificates from David Horne's "World of Grip" came with them on the same day!!!

Many thanks to Eric and Andrew, as well as to all those who made this tournament real! May the Force be with you in this New 2022 Year, guys!!!

I love when accomplishment has this effect, on others and on myself.  It is so human.  I really feel like I have found a community in grip sports.  Even though it is worldwide and many of us will never meet, we all are connected in a way.  Congratulations!
