We aim to encourage and inspire young girls

And how do we do that? We re-designed FACEOFF x INDIVIDUALS so men and women could compete simultaneously, but not against each other. In other words – we did two competitions in one!  

We could go on and on about how we think it went (pretty damn awesome, if we might say 🔥) 

Instead, we have asked the winners of FACEOFF X INDIVIDUALS from Sweden, Denmark, and Norway to walk you through their first experience with FACEOFF.

How was your overall experience at FACEOFF 2022?

FACEOFF is an epic experience! Even though FACEOFF is a competition, it feels more like a show that gives me the opportunity to be creative and choose which skills I wanted to show!

Why did you decide to take part in FACEOFF?

It was a pretty easy ‘YES’ from me. I was honestly hoping that FACEOFF would contact me. I think the concept is so awesome, and I love how there’s a competition that allows people in the gymnastics environment the opportunity to be more creative and have fun with our sport. I had also been following FACEOFF’s Insta for a long time, and was hoping to one day take part.

Would you encourage others to take part in FACEOFF?

Yes – I’d definitely recommend other athletes to take part! It’s a crazy experience, and I definitely hope to see more girls take part next year. Even though some things were a bit scary, it’s fun to try new things. I’m sure that anyone who’s thinking about it, and who are skilled enough, would succeed. It’s the wildest thing!

What is your advice to future contestants?

Have fun and do your best! You’re there for a reason, and that reason is that you’re one of the best in your field! And do your best to enjoy every minute, because it’ll be over before you know it.

Would you want to participate again, if it fits in your calendar?

I’d definitely be ready again! And I hope to see more girls there next time! It’s an epic experience, and I wouldn’t want to miss a second of it.

How was your overall experience at FACEOFF 2022?

My overall experience was fantastic! The entire setup was very professional, and the FACEOFF crew took incredibly good care of us gymnasts. The gymnasts are an important factor, and FACEOFF understood that.

Why did you decide to take part in FACEOFF?

I decided to take part because I LOVE to try things, I’ve never done before. FACEOFF is the perfect place to leave your comfort zone and do things, you know you’re capable of, but perhaps haven’t tried before. The atmosphere lifts your doubles and triples to a higher level – and maybe a meter or two! I’m honored to have been part of FACEOFF!

Would you encourage others to take part in FACEOFF?

If you feel like you have something to contribute as a gymnast at FACEOFF, you have to take part! FACEOFF is a place where you meet new friends from across the world. I would definitely recommend other gymnasts to participate – I didn’t just meet new friends at FACEOFF, I also learned that I’m actually a much better gymnast than I thought.

What’s your best advice to future contestants?

Have fun! Your tricks and rotations happen automatically, when you hear the audience roaring and cheering.

Would you want to participate again if it fits in your calendar?

If I can find time next year, I’m definitely in! If I can, I’m in for the next 100 competitions.

FACEOFF is one of the biggest events in the gymnastics calendar, and the competition is a place, where different athletes from different branches of gymnastics meet up and have an amazing time together!
