BASQUE REGIONAL SLINGSHOT CHAMPIONSHIPS
Stage 01 – Welcome to the Slingshot Zone!
As you know, slingshottingThe exertion of force on a human athlete’s lower back region (LBR), typically with one’s hand, in order to increase a human athlete’s speed up a steep hill or incline, or simply to assist them for a brief period of time, during which the human athlete is allowed to rest for a second or “ease up’ if even just momentarily. is the most important of all spectator maneuvers. Moreso than water bottler collection, signature collection, shouting, clapping, cheering, fist pumping and instrument blowing, slingshotting is the one and only maneuver that brings the spectator into direct physical contact with the human athlete. Because a great deal of mutual trust is required in order to properly execute a slingshot, the slingshotter must approach the slignshotee with good form and a great deal of confidence. The would-be slingshotter’s approach must combine skill, commitment, technique, presentation, and passion.
To celebrate the Slingshot Maneuver, Manual for Speed is hosting the first ever Basque Regional Slingshot Championships. On Saturday March 12 we will crown the first ever Slingshot King—”The King of Sling.”
Slingshotting is not a race where the first one over a finish line wins!, it’s a freestyle action sport and as such winners are determined by a peer-based score system. We want YOU to be the judge! This is how it works, please review the following seven contestants, judge their slingshot entry based on the following five-point system:

Please text your vote (the contestants name, e.g. Gorka) to 503.754.7476 (please don’t call, it’s 48 United States Dollars a minute!), and a winner of Stage 01 will be selected in the next 24 hours.
