Missed my Invite: World Pole Dancing Competition

poledanceSo I’m ticked off now. My agent had me lined up to be a judge at this years Pole Dancing World Cup. And if she couldn’t get me in as a judge at the very least I was to be entered as a contestant. I’d have my own weight category. I’m going to have to let her go. You hear that mom? You’re fired.

Contestants from 36 countries climbed, gripped and did splits on poles during the three-day competition in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. At the Pole World Cup, the judges look at the difficulty of the moves and artistic performance.

The competition is open to both women and men and was first held in 2011. The cash prize in the Pole World Cup can be as much as £20,000.

Yeah, you read that right. There are dudes as this competition. You know how they looked? Ripped like a New Testament prophet, that’s how.
