Vana Tallinn Grand Prix 2019

A week ago I had the opportunity to travel to Riga and enter the competition Vana Tallinn Grand Prix 2019 as a guest competitor. This competition is recognized as the Baltic Championship so entering was very fun and trying. Since I was a guest competitor I could not hold a place or a titel as “a Baltic Champion”, but nevertheless I made it into the final which was as much as I could hope to do. It was a good experience and definitely some needed practice. Sending a big congratulation to Kaspars Reitups from Riga who won the Baltic Championship.
