The big day has arrived,
The teams are ready, the camera cranes are shooting and 100s of guests per hour are gathering above Dana Villas to watch the Red bull art of motion event.
The athletes are gathered at the top of the tracked and briefed. It is the first time Red bull has ever organized an event in Santorini and the set up is amazing. There are speakers all through the area, guests of the event are quickly taken to protected areas within the track and spectators are kept behind the track boundaries for their own safety and the safety of the athletes that must not be distracted while they are performing.
The parkour athletes will one by one compete and will be judged in a total combination of their maneuverability, stunts, style and their speed from the start of the track to the end.
Every athlete has his own music that will be heard throughout the area while performing an the read bull team will introduce each Athlete before he runs the track.
The photos below tell the story of an amazing day and amazing event that we all hope will return to Santorini next year to amaze us and make us relive the that day again.
