At Europeans 2018 I snuck into the warm up area for Rebeka Koha’s session.
ATG Patrons now have early access to her full warm up + competition video.
A front row seat to watch the warm up of Europe’s finest technician. Rebeka became senior European champion with a 29kg lead over her opponents. She snatched 100kg and clean & jerked 120kg at age 19.
Filming this was a little tough for a couple of reasons. First I had to sneak into the warm up area, not having an official pass (it took the organizers almost until the very last day to get our accreditation). Luckily, some of the officials already know me and have seen me at various meets, so that I was able to just blend in with the rest of the people back there (the next day I was kicked out of the warm up area by another technical official, when I tried to film Loredana’s warm up 😇).
As always it was super crowded back there. So you constantly have to run around and find a spot that will give you a clear view for the next lift. All that while being as stealthy as possible.
In the end I think I got some good angles for you. You’ll get the front row seat in for something that is not shown on TV during competitions.
