A remarkable premiere happened at this year's Parkour World Cup in Sofia (Bulgaria), when German athlete Davina Fisseler became the first German woman ever to qualify for this international tournament. Davina achieved an outstanding success in the Speed discipline and just missed the semi-finals.
The parkour tournament, which took place in the picturesque Bulgarian capital from September 8 to 10, attracted athletes from all over the world. However, Davina set herself apart as a pioneer for German parkour sports by qualifying for the tournament. This achievement is not only a personal milestone for Davina, but also a significant step for the growing parkour community in Germany.
Parkour, a sport that requires skill, speed and creative thinking, has become a popular discipline worldwide.
In the Speed discipline, she competed against some of the best female parkour athletes in the world and made it to the top 15. Despite narrowly missing out on the semifinals, Davina was extremely pleased with her first major international performance and looks forward to a promising future in the sport of parkour.
"I am overwhelmed by the experience of having participated in the Parkour World Cup in Sofia," said Davina Fisseler. "My goal is to continue to work and find the support we need to compete at the international level."
