The Lublin Juggling Convention was host to the Lublin 2014 Fight Night, which took place on the 10th of May! It was a 250 level tournament, with 18 jugglers taking part in the qualification session in the afternoon and 8 going through to the knockout late that night.
To avoid spoilers, watch the video below before checking out the Fight Night (beta) tournament page for results and details.
The video shows some highlights of the round of 8, then all the action from the semi-finals and final. And the last point from the 3rd place match, which was admittedly very one-sided. It features Luke Burrage, Lauge Benjaminsen, Jakub Szwed, Jacek KwapiÅ„ski, Marcin Borkowski, PaweÅ‚ Witczak, Tomek Palka and Jerzy KozÅ‚owski.
Thanks to Jakub Szwed for inviting me to the Lublin convention to organize and take part in the tournament, and thanks to Juliane too for helping run the qualification and the knockout.
Due to Bob leaving Brianza early, and nobody else stepping up to make it happen, there was no Fight Night at Brianza this year. This means Remi De Vos, last year’s winner, has dropped from 12th in the rankings down to 36th.
Watch out for results from the next Fight Night, taking place at the NJF (the Dutch Juggling Festival). Last year’s second place player, Simon A Campo will be there again, but will face a strong challenge from two current top 10 players: Brook Roberts, who was seeded first at the BJC 2014 Fight Night last month, and Iver Tronstad who won that same event. It should be a good one!
