The sprint takes place on the 20th of August and the registration is opened by now. Skaters are going to compete in two different race classes – sprint and sprint for beginners.

Last year’s beginners’ sprint winner in a women class Geidi Kruusmann encourages both – men and women – to take part in the inline skating sprint. “Sprint is totally different from the marathon and it is feasible for everyone,” says Kruusmann. “Competing in Tartu gives me a feeling that I am participating in a big and important event.”

Inline skaters are going to clarify the winner on a 600 m race track by qualifications. To make it to the finals, the competitors have to prove themselves first in the qualifiaction rounds. Participation is allowed to the men and women from the age of 16, first 100 applicants who have registered can enter to the competition.

It is possible to see competing last year’s sprint winner in a men class Marten Liiv again. His main goal this year is to repeat his victory. Tartu Inline Skating Sprint is the most important sprint competition in Estonia for him.

Tartu Inline Skating Sprint also pleases the eye of an audience, who has an opportunity to see the whole competition and cheer on favourite skaters in different race rounds.

It is interesting for the audience to follow the competition, because there is suspense until the finish line,” says Liiv. Kruusmann thinks that sprint is gripping to watch, especially when the participants are racing together. ”How they take the curves and then final spurt man against man.”
