As you are no doubt already aware, the 2012 World Pole Dancing Championship is due to take place in Switzerland in November. China officially joined the World Federation of Pole Dancing in 2010 and the national team competed in their first event in October 2011, in which they qualified for the semi-finals and won the first medal in the history of Chinese pole dancing.
World Pole Dance has grown from originally changing public perception of ‘Pole Dance’ as a form of fitness to ensuring a unified approach to Pole Dance and Fitness as a competitive sport through a central unified organisation with the aim of offering pole safety through the best equipment and qualified instructors offering a unified set of rules and raise the standards of pole fitness generally to ensure safe classes and lessons for students looking to participate at every level of this sport.
At least they can’t possibly be more embarrassing than the Chinese national football team.
