European Champion

We were at the European Flyball Championship on Saturday me and Chip were in the same team again as last week.



It was the first time I have competed in the European Championships although Chip went to Belgium two years ago to have a go. There were loads of teams from different countries all over Europe.





It was a very different format than the normal Flyball racing we do.

There were speed trials in the the morning to get your teams seeding and then in the afternoon we had the competitive racing a bit like a cup competition. But it was called double elimination so you could lose once and then drop down to race another team.  
   

 

We won all our races in the afternoon to go into the finals unbeaten and then raced a very good team from Austria. 

We had some more great close flyball racing in the final but also beat them to win our Division and to be crowned as the European Champions from our Division.   

This is me with my team mates and some of the other countries flags.   
 



And a closer photo off us all. Chip is the little dog being held.
    



And this is me with my own European Championships winners rosette and the team winner’s trophy.



 
So say hello to Wizz a European Flyball Champion!
