Tom Sietas 8:56

Thread Status: Hello , There was no answer in this thread for more than 60 days.
It can take a long time to get an up-to-date response or contact with relevant users.
Thanks for the link. I also saw the video of his 9 + demonstration static at the AIDA Worlds. Is he letting mouths full of air out over the last minute of his statics?
Yes he does. I talked to him about this after the attempt and he said that he was very full of air and when the contractions came this was uncomfortable , so he released some air to make it feel more comfortable. If you look carefull you can see him doing it almost at every contraction a bit.

The only other time i saw him perform was in Berlin and he did the same thing. It does spook the judges though. In Berlin it almost got him disqualified because they thought he had a samba. Now they seem to know he does this and combined with the way he comes up there is no doubt any more.
Hi Everyone,

I was the lucky one who made this picture:)

CONGRATS again Tom
