Every year the World Championship in HMB is attended by new National Teams. 2015 is not an exception. This time at least two National Teams, namely from Hungary and the Netherlands will make their debut. Negotiations and registration process are over, the men have already started to pack their stuff to go to Prague.
According to the Organizing committee of “Battle of the Nations”-2015, the Hungarians and the Dutch will arrive with about 10 fighters (each team). Their teams will participate in the “5 vs 5″ and single categories.
It’s worth noting that the National Team of the Netherlands has one female fighter. Esther Veldstra, besides “Triathlon”, will also take part in a new category, namely “All vs all” for women. As for Team Hungary, it will include Zsigmond Ádámffy, an experienced triathlon fighter, who was a mercenary for Team Croatia in 2014.
As for the other teams, potential debutants… Organizing committee of “Battle of the Nations” is holding negotiations with representatives of another four countries, they have to solve transportation issues.
By the way, there are more than 40 National Teams in the world, but some of them hasn’t attended “Battle of the Nations” yet, due to various reasons.
And what if there’s no own National Team for “Battle of the Nations”, but there’s a desire to come to the event and take part in it?.. According to the regulations, a National Team can participate in the Championship only if it fights in the “5 vs 5″ category. This is a precondition! I.e. absence of five-member units means there is no National Team.
According to HMBIA, they know about a large number of HMB enthusiasts from several countries from around the world, who, unfortunately, cannot form five-member units and be represented as the official National Teams of their countries. But there’s a solution, specially for them! Any country can send a fighter who will see and feel everything concerning the World Championship in HMB “Battle of the Nations.” Emissaries will be able to participate in the “21 vs 21″ category as a part of one of the mixed teams, in “All vs all” buhurts, friendly profights and battles on the training lists.
The decision has already found a response. Representatives of Latin America, namely Brazil and Chile will arrive. Canadians want to send one emissary as well. A HMB fighter from China is expected to attend the Championship, too.
